  • BBC2 JAPAN – Earth’s Enchanted Islands

    Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 12.34.53

    If you get chance and haven’t seen it yet watch BBC2’s documentary on Japan and the many enchanted Islands that surround it, the videography is stunning.

    Documentary Overview: In the far south west of Japan, there is a chain of islands stretching towards the tropics – a place where all life is influenced by the power of the sea, and where volcanoes and typhoons are forces to be reckoned with. The journey begins at an island at the top of the chain and travels south, revealing unexpected stories of isolation, unique wildlife and unsolved mysteries.

  • Drones take whale science to new heights

    Drone photography

    Instead of standing on the shore with binoculars, scientists are turning to drones to monitor wild populations of whales off the US coast.

    A hexacopter hovers 40m or more above the ocean, kitted out with a high-resolution camera to record valuable images of these huge beasts. Researchers can use these pictures to count the whales, but also to study their health and their behavior. This will allow a thorough survey of the gray whales living off California.

    “We can’t put a gray whale on a scale, but we can use aerial images to analyze their body condition – basically, how fat or skinny they are,” said John Durban, a marine mammal biologist at Noaa Fisheries.

  • Stunning recce


    Over the last 2 years we have had the pleasure of shooting videos all over the country, from Newcastle to Southampton. But last week one of our clients picked a location in Wales so we had a recce and shot the video in Llandudno, which as you can see from this image was stunning. As it happens we also stayed in that hotel on the right, the Grand Hotel, which wasn’t very grand at all!

  • The New Range From PWS

    Fitzroy range

    The Fitzroy range from PWS will be launch to trade soon and it is simply stunning. We’ve shot some videos which will be used to demonstrate the different styles of doors and finishes available. Watch out for the video on our vimeo site and the PWS website soon.


  • Very Lazy Instagram shoot

    Very Lazy Instagram shoot

    As a huge fan of Garlic and Chillies it was very satisfying to work with The Brand Nursery on a series of Instagram films for Very Lazy this week. Amongst the many food recipes you can cook with Very Lazy Chillies and Garlic, the chef cooked up 2 Four Rib joints which went down beautifully, after they had been shot of course!!!
