Unicycle Hockey - Alternative Sports

March 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

For my alternative sports series here is a shot I took of the London Unicycle Hockey Team. A truly weird and wonderful sport this is. Perhaps the only game where getting on the playing field in the first place is a challenge. I've been along a couple of times now and the players seem very dedicated to the sport (I guess you have to be!). I'm looking forward to seeing them in action again soon.

Time Out Tower of London game and The Bletchley Bar

March 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This was a tricky one. Trying to get a decent picture of a Time Out crew skulking along the ramparts of the Tower of London past a couple of guards, all while lying in a puddle in the pissing rain, trying to get the Tower and everything else in shot with nothing wider than a 24mm lens and no space to manoeuvre. Welcome to Difference Engine's Tower of London immersive game experience. The aim of the game is to break into the Tower and open the gates from the inside, allowing the masses to flood in and kickstart a revolution. I had an image of the Scooby Doo crew in my mind the whole time while trying to shoot this... isn't it obvious?

 

The second shoot was at the Bletchley Bar on Kings Road where you have to crack codes using enigma type machines and drinks are made according to your favourite smells. Certainly not your average cocktail bar experience.  Tower of London game-36Tower of London game-36 Tower of London game-28Tower of London game-28

February 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Been a bit lax posting new work of late - here are a couple of shoots for Time Out appearing in today's mag. Loyle Carner has released his debut album in the past month and decided to celebrate the launch by cooking a feast for his fans. The second cutting is to promote the children's Imagine Festival starting at Southbank in February.  069_TO_2416069_TO_2416 054_TO_2416054_TO_2416
