Ash Soan Portrait for Zildjian

I recently had the good fortune to work with drumming legend and all round lovely human being Ash Soan, recent winner of Modern Drummer’s 2017 Readers Poll ‘Studio Drummer’ award, making him the first U.K. artist to win this category since Simon Phillips did so in 1987.

We shot his portrait for world renowned cymbal makers Zildjian, who look after all of Ash’s cymbal needs.

The cymbals you see in this shot are from the new ‘Zildjian K Custom Special Dry’ range.

Location was Ash’s recording studio ‘Windmill Studios

New Work For GE Oslo

New work for GE is now live.

The GE Oslo shoot was a perfect example of a team effort. We were working under reasonably tight time and location constraints, shooting real people in their busy working environments, and so we had to remain as flexible as possible. Working with an experienced and flexible art director meant we could quickly explore visual ideas as they presented themselves, and working with a seasoned production crew meant we could work unhindered, knowing everything was at hand.. and all I had to do was think about making the pictures. It was a memorable shoot, and for all the right reasons.

Some kind words from Seven Stones’ creative director, Justin Earl.. “Working in Oslo with Julian and his team on this four-day shoot was an absolute pleasure. He knew exactly what we wanted to achieve with each shot, shooting in some very challenging industrial spaces. The brief for this shoot was about capturing the characters and stories of real employees and we did exactly that, thanks to the way Julian made everyone feel very much at home in front of his camera.”

And a full breakdown of what went in to the shoot, from my agent Lisa Pritchard’s blog, here.

Land Rover Reborn

I was recently asked to shoot an article for Land Rover’s Onelife magazine, on the Reborn project.

Spending two days in Land Rover’s Solihull manufacturing site, surrounded by history and witnessing first hand the amazing restoration work that the Reborn team are undertaking, was a real honour.

For anyone who has a passion for Land Rovers, seeing these beautiful Series 1 vehicles up close, and understanding exactly where the Land Rover story started, is highly recommended, and you can do just that on a Land Rover Reborn Tour. You can also find more information on the Land Rover Reborn project here.

AOP Awards 2016

Delighted to have had my portrait of biologist and seaweed expert, Agnes Mols-Mortensen, selected for the AOP Awards finals, 2016.

This was shot as part of a commission for Land Rover, on the beautiful black sand beach at Tjørnuvík, the northernmost village on the Faroese island of Streymoy. It was raining for much of our seven day trip, which added to the soft light and general mood of the imagery.

The AOP Awards event will be held at The Old Truman Brewery, in Brick Lane, London, on the 13th October 2016. The exhibition will be open to the public from 14-17 October 2016.

Client : Land Rover.   Agency : Redwood.   AD : Dan Delaney.

North Northwest Beginnings – Show Catalogue

The North Northwest Beginnings show catalogue was produced to accompany Julian’s first solo show, back in 2012.

From the original print run of 500, there are now just over 50 of these beautifully produced books left.

The technical specification of the book was very important, as we wanted to achieve the finest print quality to echo that of the show’s archival pigment print work.

The cover is 380 Micron Horizon Pulpboard with embossed artists seal, with interior pages on 200gsm Satimat. The book was printed using a Sublima hybrid non-uniform dot. The screen resolution is 280 lpi which boasts a higher definition than the 175lpi, normally used by printers. Images were sampled at 360dpi at the final printed sized to maximise the use of this higher quality printing technique.

The catalogue is 210mm x 210mm and consists of 24 pages. Each catalogue is signed.

To order a copy click here, and yes, we ship worldwide.
