I recently spent several weeks traveling and working with Saatchi & Saatchi on a new ad campaign for the eye wear retailer OPSM. The job was a really exciting project for me to be a part of because it picked two small towns- Busselton, Western Australia and Napier, New Zealand- and found people of all […]
I recently had 2 huge jobs which both happened to bring me to New Zealand for shooting. We had a brief day with my fantastic assistant Maxy where he took us to an incredible black sand beach north of Auckland and we took a break from the crazy job and spent the evening surfing. I […]

The job involved working with massive, real letters spelling out the “4G” that weighed several hundred pounds and took a team of moving experts to get the unwieldy, fragile and extremely expensive props into place. We started off at 2:30 AM […]
I’ve just launched a new website with a totally new look and functionality and a lot of new pictures. Check it out. After 2 years of people nagging me, I’ve also finally joined Instagram. I’ll see how it goes. I might have a lot of fun with it or I might just end up taking […]
