VOGUE // MODEL DIARIES

For Vogue International, I captured a day-in-the-life with top models Alanna Arrington on the eve of New York Fashion Week, and Barbara Palvin on her day off ahead of the Victoria Secret 2019 show.


SWAROVSKI

Working with Swarovski over the course of three fashion seasons, I shot and directed a series of 20+ biographies of their sponsored designers, that were placed exclusively with fashion publishers around the world (Vogue, ID, Harper's Bazaar, Style.com).


DSECTION

Interviews with the Cool Kids of NYC for DSECTION magazine - shot on gloriously grubby VHS.


LEICA X HUAWEI

I developed concepts and directed the global launch film for Huawei P9 handset.  The P9 features a camera by photography legends Leica, and so getting the opportunity to collaborate with the iconic German brand was truly epic.

SONY

I shot this studio-exclusive recording of British rock-band Nothing But Thieves for Sony Xperia Z3 and Shortlist Magazine.

NIKE

I worked directly with Nike Europe for many years, directing and concepting for both athlete and live event doc- style content. 


BRITISH GQ

I collaborated with photographer Cameron McNee on a series of social videos and longer Q&As for British GQ's editorials for Burberry (Presley Gerber) and Tommy Hilfiger (The Chainsmokers), mixing HD and VHS footage, capturing authentic and affectionate celebrity moments.


CHRISTIES

Innovative exhibition launch film for Past Perfect, Future Present at Christie’s London - telling the story of the exhibition through dance.

CUSP

My multi-award-winning short fiction film, Cusp, [currently airing on the ShortsHD cable channel] is being developed into a TV Pilot with Executive Producer John Melfi (Sex & The City, House of Cards, Vinyl).

DAVE TELEVISION - THE UGLY BROTHERS

A comedy-doc short for British broadcaster Dave Television - real life inspiration for my screenplay 'The Ugly Brothers'.
