  • The ‘jacket or shirt’ debate. We chatted for a minute about whether the jacket or the shirt was the better look. I preferred the classic white shirt and trousers, probably harking back to memories of flicking through my Penn, Marshall and Erwitt books where styling was simple, shoots were all ‘come as you are’, no days spent trying clothes on and looking at labels. While we chatted I metered, framed up, got focus and counted in, 3..2..1.. click. I fired off a few ‘quick’ frames in the jacket before it came off. I say quick, but medium format, especially with a fully manual camera that has no meter, let alone auto-focus, demands a more fluid and thoughtful approach which I really enjoy and it’s great to be shooting this format again. The other shots are dotted across the bands social accounts if you’d like to see them, this one is my favourite and the only one I didn’t count in for. #120mmfilm

  • Brad caught in deep thought. I’d literally just changed the roll in my camera, held it up to wind onto the first frame and grabbed this exposure straight away. It’s very freeing using a camera that only has three controls and nothing else. ISO set when the film goes in (this is Delta 3200), set aperture on the lens and the one other dial on the camera - shutter speed, focus and click. When you then pick up your digital camera with its 35 or so menus it’s instantly exhausting to think about all the options. It’s why I nearly always turn all the extra customisable dial controls off if I can, I like my camera to just be a camera and get out of the way so I can get on with feeling the moment and exposing some photos. #35mmfilm

  • Connor enjoying the freak warm weather at the start of March that lasted all of a day. The band were together working on a mix for a new song and to meet and talk about plans for staging and production of the upcoming Four Corners UK Tour #35mmfilm

  • Just before we filmed takes for an acoustic recording I grabbed a few medium format stills with the band. As you can see, I like things backlit but with a little kick of light to give the eyes some life. Lighting looks will change but that’s the basis and starting point for my work for most set shoots. #120mmfilm

  • Tris about to track for the recent acoustic sessions at The Pool in London. He was sat waiting for the team to add the final touches to the lighting setup as we were filming the recording session as well. This is taken on my old #contaxT2 which I think is near the end of its life unfortunately 😞 #35mmfilm

  • Brad and Tris listening to takes during the recent Pool acoustic sessions. Fixated on perfecting their vision of what a song should be, always fun to watch and feel a part of. #35mmfilm

  • James mid takes at The Pool whilst we were recording and filming some acoustic versions of the new tracks. In between Directing I was getting some photos of the boys as they chilled, discussed the UK Tour and talked about how the new songs were sounding. #35mmfilm

  • The band at work in Tristan’s home studio. Brad invariably takes the desk chair. Tris wanders around and spurts out ideas shouted from different rooms. James and Connor seem to nearly always have a guitar with them. #35mmfilm
