Wow, I just realised how long it has been since I last blogged. It has been a crazy summer with trying to take over the world....well, building new business ideas. So this summer I have being doing a little less shooting to work more on the building blocks and foundations. Here are the exciting projects I have been working on:
Timeline Missions (www.timelinemissions.com)
Myself, Matt Hollis, Xavier de le Rue, Guido Perrini, Tero Repo and Mathieu Giraud decided to join forces on building a production company in Verbier. Timeline Missions is a full service, creative led, production house where action sports and the natural environment are in our DNA. Based in the Swiss Alps we are an international company of award winning Cinematographers, Photographers, Directors, Producers and Professional Athletes. Producing feature films, documentaries, TV, print and digital advertising for a huge range of clients, we are dedicated to realising the dreams of amazing athletes and bringing you stunning images from around the world.
I am so proud to be working with such an amazing team. We are currently developing a stock footage and photography archive of the highest quality for launch this winter. In addition we have a few interesting expeditions and productions in the pipeline. It looks to be an amazing and interesting winter!
Melody Sky Photography (www.melodysky.com)
So as Timeline Missions has the focus on Action Sports, Melody Sky Photography will also be re-launching but focussing on travel, lifestyle and the environment. Next week I leave for a month in Sri Lanka where I will be shooting a few of Sri Lanka's most amazing charities (http://www.spicesrilanka.org.uk/, http://s-h-a-r-e.org/) and in addition whales and elephants.
On my return from Sri Lanka, I will be working on a new website also with stock photography archive.
This summer I launched VIP with Matt Hollis. We have been shooting beautiful interior films with the use of cranes and dolly's to get some stunning imagery. There is a lot of movement in the films and gives a real idea of the scale and the beauty of the properties. This winter will see the use or drones for arial filming of chalets in the snow also. The films will be used for chalet owners and companies alike to promote, sell or advertise these exclusive properties. It's early days, so not so much to see as yet, but come December when it launches properly, there will hopefully be lots to see!
There are two more projects on the cards, but as yet I am not ready to reveal. Will update once I get back from Sri Lanka:-)
