Ross Bay Retreat – New Video

Above is a new version of my video created for Ross Bay Retreat (rossbayretreat.com) 20 months ago. We really enjoyed our stay there and if you like the idea of staying in a holiday cottage that looks directly out onto the sea then I would certainly encourage you to have a look at their website.

In the intervening months I feel I have learnt so much more about video editing and filmmaking. Although I am proud of the original I do think that this version is an improvement on it for a number of technical and aesthetic reasons. If you want to compare the two and let me know what you think, then here is the original!

ITV Aerial Video Work

It was great to have my services requested by ITV this week. Yesterday I went to a well known local tourist attraction to capture some footage for a piece that was being created for This Morning. I was due to also do a little aerial filming of a certain celebrity but unfortunately he called in sick on the day! When I know when it is going to be used and aired on TV I will post details.

“One For Sorrow…” Fort Walney War Memorial

Stuart Bastik and Maddi Nicholson of Art Gene commissioned Aerial Artwork to produce a film to document their impressive and newly installed war memorial “One For Sorrow…” at North Walney. The challenge to capture the mood and unique location of the work was one to which I really enjoyed responding. I know Stuart and Maddi are pleased with the end result and I hope you enjoy it too. Although it takes a little longer to load up I would recommend watching it in 1080p (Full HD).

I would urge you to read all about the artwork on the Art Gene website by clicking on the link in red here:

The Rowley Estates

Here are the very satisfying results of many months of planning, capturing and editing through the summer and autumn of 2016. These eight promotional videos feature aerial footage that attempt to do justice to these stunning properties available to book as holiday homes at http://www.therowleyestates.com. It was a big challenge to put these together to effectively show the properties in the context of their surroundings, but I hope viewers feel I have gone at least some way to achieving this. A collection of photographs were completed for each property too, some of which can be seen below.

South Walney Junior School Visit

I was delighted to be invited in to South Walney Junior School to meet and work with their Year 5 pupils this week. On Tuesday I gave a presentation about the aerial work I do and then explained about 360° photographs. On Thursday, despite the overcast and windy conditions, the year group ventured out to the shore with their teachers and created their own 360° photographs using the school’s iPads. I am now in the middle of processing these photographs and am looking forward to going back in to show them the results. The pupils were a credit to their school and it was great to witness their enthusiasm and appreciation. A big thank you to Caitlin Bates for organising the project.

3000 visitors

Every visitor to my website is of course equally important, but everyone likes round numbers and so I am pleased to announce this latest milestone!

Perhaps the more significant thing is that visitor numbers have been steadily increasing since I launched my new website. I have endeavoured to document and present the work I have completed as clearly and thoroughly as possible. I have enjoyed doing this and I hope you enjoy viewing it.

Of course, if you like what you see and feel you could make use of my services, I would be delighted to provide you with a quote.
