Tim Wallace working with a Hasselblad

I thought I’d share an excellent video with you, which was shot by my work colleagues Rob and Paul. The video features the excellent photographer Tim Wallace, who was recently a Hasselblad photgrapher of the month. Tim has done many roadshows for Calumet around the country and his shows are always well attended and very popular. He is extremely highly regarded in the industry and his work proves why. He uses Profoto lights and shoots all his work with a Hasselblad. Here’s a link to his website. http://www.ambientlife.co.uk/

Rob shot all the footage on a Canon Eos 5D MK2 with a variety of lenses. He also used a glide track, Zacuto Rig and a helicopter ! Nice !

Enjoy the video, especially as the weather is so cold here in the UK at the moment !
And a big well done to Tim, Rob and Paul.

Alexandra Palace, North London

I’m currently working on a set of images of Alexandra Palace in North London. Many photographers make the mistake of traveling miles to get to exotic destinations but forget to photograph their local region. Luckily for me Alexandra Palace is nearly my back garden. It’s a beautiful, tranquil haven, away from the madness of the city and this is what I’m trying to capture in my photographs. It’s quiet and peaceful, steeped in history and is a wonderful location.

I’m photographing this project with the Hasselblad H4D 50 or the H3D 50. The clarity of the images is superb and lends itself to this body of work. It’s going to take some time to complete but hopefully I’m going to try and get an exhibition and publish a book at its completion. My Nikon D2X is getting less of a look in at the moment. The quality just doesn’t compare with the Hasselblad, although its been a great workhorse over the last few years. Horses for courses I suppose.

Here are a few of the images.
