A well deserved catch up...

So I'm close to finishing University, I have been filming, lighting and generally trying to keep my head above water for these last few weeks. My own short film 'Grandad's Chair' is nearing completion, a big update is due no doubt so I'll fill you in on some of the projects that I have been lucky enough to be a part of....soon! I'll leave you with the brilliant 'Make Believe' a skate video that blurs between what feels like California in the 70's and the modern day by Derek Hanson. See more work from Derek here

Roots Manuva 'Get the Get' FT Rokshan

Can Roots Manuva do no wrong? Gotta love that skank, such a simple video!

Meet My Dad!

My friend Chris Lanaway, perfectly captured the warmth of my Dad's character here! My Dad used to cycle everywhere, round the track, time trials and to work and back home to look after us when we were younger.

So much respect.

Thanks Dad

Hiatus Portrait

Been looking through some old work recently, I stumbled across this photo of  mate/musician Cyrus taken at Stockwell Skatepark in Brixton.

I think this photo shows a poignant moment in time, we had met up to discuss the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots and to reflect on it's cultural significance...

Insurrection by Hiatus, his own interpretation Linton Kwesi Johnsons' 'The Great Insohreckshan'.


Brighton W Ghostpoet

Had the pleasure of meeting, watching and photographing Ghostpoet back in summer in Brighton for Mint Magazine. It was a pleasure to meet him, a  really laid back guy.

Brighton seems to be a place close to Obaro's heart, coming down as a teenager to visit the sea side city and watch gigs. So I thought it would be apt to take a wonder round the beach front.

Even had a bit if a chuckle when my camera broke half way through the shoot...

The interview/illustration/photos will be an exclusive for Mint Magazine, dropping on New Years day!

Stay tuned and on time!

My Illustrator mate Lorna Harrington came down to assist and draw up ideas for an illustration of Ghostpoet.

Thanks to Nigel at BFlat Productions for helping Mint organise this feature and Guilluame at Kayak Music for allowing us to do it.

Dels and Ghostpoet- Trumpalump (Joe Goddard Remix)

Sometimes my life will influence my dreams,
and sometimes my dreams will influence my life

And I can't imagine how he must have felt,
To see his family crying, clutching his palm

I just want to go back to that one moment,
where me and him were dancing on that garden path...

Grandad's Chair

My  late Grandad was a proud Yorkshireman, a good footballer and built his own house. Many memories of him sitting in his favourite chair, he watched us grow up and we watched him. I visited his empty bungalow a couple of months back, light flooded in when I was taking photos

Maybe he was still there...
