Artist In Residence at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, UK

In Uncategorized on July 1, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , ,


In July and August I will be Artist In Residence at Bank Street Arts, 32-40 Bank Street, Sheffield S1 2DS.

I will be shooting timelapse video with a view to creating a new piece of work as part of my project “The Secret Life of Buildings”. This is a body of video work that is intended to present a portrait of a building that is not necessarily a literal document of it.

The first in this series is “The Eye and The Sky” (2008), which was shot in The HUBS (Sheffield Hallam University’s Students’ Union building).

I will be documenting my progress on a new blog, and will be writing a text about the process. We also hope to have a screening at Bank Street Arts after the residency. I will not be present every day but will be shooting on and off throughout July and August.

A different take on the commercial promo. This is another interpretation of high dynamic range (HDR) time-lapse video that I shot for a promotional video for The Quadrant. The music is “Gnossienne No. 1” by Erik Satie, performed by B. L. Underwood.

The Quadrant, Sheffield, UK – Promotional Video V1

In Uncategorized on June 14, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

At last, after a rather long process, I have finished a version of my promotional video for The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK. Commissioned on behalf of CVC Event Services.
It’s entirely time-lapse video shot on-site, and some of it is high dynamic range (HDR), post-processed with Photomatix Pro. Music by Laurence Alexander.

The Quadrant Video Shoot – HDR timelapse experiments with CHDK

In Uncategorized on May 16, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

These are some fragments from a HDR timelapse shoot at The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK. Below are some short examples of HDR timelapse video created with Canon PowerShot cameras “hacked” with the Canon Hack Development Kit (CHDK), an open-source software program. The HDR is achieved by shooting 3 exposures for each shot, one normal exposure, one +2 EV and one -2 EV. The results are post-processed with Photomatix into tone-compressed jpegs, the result of which is to produce an image with a much greater colour depth. These are then compiled into movies using QuickTime Pro. The result is a moving image that can accommodate a very high dynamic range without losing either the highlights or the shadows. It’s very processing-intensive but the results are impressive and produced with domestic-scale equipment (and a lot of patience).

Watch them in 720p HD on Vimeo or YouTube and stay tuned for a proper edit. Music by Sieben aka Matt Howden.

The Candy Cane Quadrant, Sheffield, UK – Where even the fire escapes are beautiful.

In Uncategorized on May 4, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , ,


I am currently shooting a promotional video for The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK, for CVC Event Services. It’s great to have so much access to a building like this and I was there on and off over the Bank Holiday weekend. I’m sure the tenants were glad of the holiday, but I had a great time shooting the building in such beautiful weather with no-one there.

I stumbled upon Gateway Plaza in Barnsley, UK, a new mixed use development of residential and commercial space. This images is derived from a triple exposure and post-processed with Photomatix, Photoshop and Topaz Adjust, although it seems to have lost some colour depth once uploaded to WordPress.
