  • Modern Life Is A Western

    A few afternoons ago I tuned in to a Western on Television and I thought about how similar our modern lives have become to Westerns.

    Valentine’s day is a day both dreaded and feared by most for two reasons, as a couple because of the pressure you’re under and as a single because you’re single.

In London, I hardly […]

Whereas on a website like youtube where you share video footage with the world on Facebook you select who you share your videos with.

  • Slightly Ahead Of Their Comfort Zone

    Today I went to film some friends playing a gig by the lakeside in Nyon and it was a great occasion. The sun was shining, the air temperature was good and many people that I had not seen in many years were present. The shoot involved two cameras. One was at the back as a […]
