Handmade London - Gavin Monery at London Cru

A few weeks ago we spent the afternoon with Gavin Monery, the head winemaker at London Cru.

Having just begun creating their second vintage, London Cru are the capital's only winery. While the grapes are gown by vineyards in France, Spain and Italy, everything else - pressing, fermenting, ageing and bottling - takes place here in London. They supply a number of bars and restaurants around the capital or you can order their wines online to enjoy at home.

Below you can see Gavin tasting one of last year's batch. Take a look in hi res on the website here.

Handmade London - Seb Edge at North London Darkroom

I'm continuing to shoot more portraits for my Handmade London project as it's popularity grows.

Last month we headed to Tottenham to meet Seb Edge who runs North London Darkroom. Seb set up the darkroom in 2012 to provide a space where he and other film shooters could develop and print their work. Shooting in the confined space of the darkroom under dim red lighting was a bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result. See it in high res on the website here.

Moss Bros Bespoke Campaign

A few months ago I shot the launch imagery for Moss Bros' new range of bespoke suits. Established in 1851, Moss Bros are a British formalwear retailer with over 100 branches across the country. Shot on location in a beautiful old house near Greenwich, we spent a day with Creative Director Sotos Georgalli and his team creating a series of images evoking the craftsmanship that goes into each suit. Look for it in stores now, and take a peek at a few of my favourites below.

Not On The Highstreet campaign

Back in the spring I shot the lead imagery for the new 'Dadpreneur' campaign for Not On The Highstreet. We spent a day with the lovely Ed Benn and his family. Ed runs a small design company called Stabo making screen prints from his home in Cambridgeshire. I shot the picture in the same style as my popular Handmade London project.

Here's the final image:

And here's how it was featured online and in print:

More from the summer with Canon Europe

See some of the pictures we shot over the summer live on the new Canon "Come and See" website:

New EOS and Powershot cameras for Canon Europe

Things have been a little slow on the blog lately as we've been out shooting so much over the summer. So I'm pleased to be able to share some of the work we've been doing for Canon Europe and JWT. We've shot in London, Florence and the Italian Alps to create fresh lifestyle images to support the launch of the EOS 7D mark II, the XF205 camcorder and a whole range of Powershot compact cameras. You can see a few of my favourites below:
