03.06.14 - Shooting the Detective

I'm just back from spending an amazing three days on the hills of Lancashire shooting 'The Detective'. What fun! 

It was the first time shooting with a large 10x8 plate camera. Thankfully I was surrounded by an incredible team. Thank you to Vicki Churchill - lighting expert, Andrew Bruce- camera operator, Sarah Howe - assistant, Simon Sweetman - production assistant. YES! What a team!


'The Detective' is new is a visual arts project combining photography, audio and print. The work documents Rebecca Jane, owner of the Lady Detective Agency, the UK's leading all female staffed private detective agency, one of only three of its kind in the country. The final work will explore love, trust and infidelity, whilst weaving together narratives of motherhood and sorcery.


Over the two shoot days we had to dodge some rain. A hightlight for me was definitely seeing Rebecca, husband and kiddies all nestled under the umbrella. Too cute!
