Inmarsat GX5 Satellite



The Inmarsat GX5 satellite launches onboard an Ariane 5 rocket tomorrow. I took these photographs of the satellite at a delicate stage of production back in April. The “mating” of the two modules takes several hours working to a tolerance of a few millimetres.We shot through abstract Dichroic glass segments.

Dichroic glass was invented by NASA in the 1950s to protect delicate equipment from cosmic rays.

Peugeot 3008



Shot earlier this year in the dunes at Holy Island, Northumbria and at La Corbiere lighthouse and causeway, Jersey, Channel Islands. 3 visits were required to the dune location over several weeks to get the quality of light we wanted, but it was worth the effort.

The Parameter pilot was actually an existing asset shot in Thailand 3 years ago.

Outstanding post production by Third Eye Studio, London

The Docks



I’ve just been testing a new telephoto lens for the Leica SL so we did some aerial work over the docks this weekend.

These were shot out of a Cessna 182.

The scale of these operations is amazing. Literally thousands of containers moving goods in and out of the UK. Thoughts relating to the stupidity of Brexit are never far away when I photograph a scene like this. .

Dune Du Pilat, France.



Last week I was shooting with Dassault in Bordeaux.

The morning after the shoot we went and lifted the drone over this astonishing spectacle.

Europe’s tallest sand dune nestled between the Atlantic Ocean, an enormous pine forest, the Arcachon Bay.

I will be back in the coming weeks to make a short film on this amazing natural marvel.

These were shot along the River Thames over 1 day with some superb retouching and composite work by Nick

It was very similar to my 2017 Siemens global campaign shot in Hong Kong

Production was through Imaginar Studio, London.

The Naked Boeing



Ok, so I will admit I had to curb my enthusiasm when this commission came in from longstanding client CTM Design.
This is what your holiday Boeing 737 looks like straight out of the factory before its paint livery, seating and interior are fitted.
The silver cabin insulation is clear to see as are thousands and thousands of rivets and weld points.
A rare occasion where you get a sense of an aircraft being a mass of wires and bent welded metal.
A fascinating job.
