A few spreads from the new prospectus. The last one always repeats. Don't know why.
The start of a new project. This is our mobile studio in which we encourage/coercere/bribe dogs to photograph themselves. By biting/chewing/sitting/standing on or otherwise squishing a remote shutter release, a photograph is taken. Treats and squeaky toys help. Certain breeds are more cooperative than others. A survey of sorts.
Technically you could play this with the normal Monopoly accessories, should you feel so inclined.
There is an official Winchester version but I like to think this one's more.. accurate. Also it didn't cost £9k to get your name on the board. Just a degree of smugness..
New website up and running. Lots of photography on there. Some mine, some not..
Archie & Amelia up at the station..
Nice to see work made for the University of Winchester's post grad program finding it's way into the world..
The 2017 Winchester Short Film Festival! A week of amazing short film screenings in venues across town, rounded off with awards night to celebrate a truely international range of entries. A lot of fun. I was roped in for photo duties, a selection of which are here. Well done John Hayes. Hero.
Banners starting to appear on campus. Good to see the photography incorporated into the new graphic design strategy. The full series can be viewed in 'Work'
Lots of work at The University of Winchester going on at the moment. Here's a few images from the Farebrother film shoot.
Farebrother provided the soundtrack for the university promo film being produced by Bold Creative and came to hang out in Winchester for the day. We shot stills and video around town and then back on campus, finishing off the day with an impromptu outdoor performance.
A couple of installation shots of 'Self Portraits of Other People', on the wall again in Oxford.
This will be followed by participation in a group show, in aid of Crisis. Details to follow..
Principle photography shot mainly in February & March of this year. There followed a world of post production for which I can only take minimal credit. Concept, design, production & basically everything that wasn't photography: The Burge. Photography: JB.
On location in Winchester Cathedral close. The University of Winchester rebrand. An exciting project and real pleasure to be working with Martin Orton of Bold Creative.
The new Smug is out. Not without controversy, but that's what you get for messing with St Jane.
In anticipation of the full blown Monopoly (Winchester edition) included in issue 6, here are a couple of ads I put together. Just setting the tone..
Many thanks to Modern Art Oxford and The Old Fire Station for organising Saturday's photography workshop. Feedback was positive! (That's what they're telling me). All the people in this shot are asleep, but you can't tell. That's what I like about photography.
Behind the people you can see is a stadium full of people.
Lecture / Workshop tomorrow. Fully booked (but also free.. so.. you know)
Very glad to be running a two part workshop at The Old Fire Station and Modern Art Oxford:
Following that, 'Self Portraits of Other People' rears it's ugly head again (literally..!). Show runs from 26/07 to 16/10.
And my contribution to the issue:
Coming up next week (Thursday 22/03/17) : The first of a series of lectures: This one to the BA Graphic Design students at The Winchester School of Art. Lecture will be based mainly around professional practice with some theory thrown in. Particularly, how a theory of photography can be applied to meet commercial objectives.
Following this will be workshops at Modern Art Oxford and The Old Fire Station, Oxford. Details in due course.
