Shanghai Delights

I'm not long back from China. After a hideous long flight from London to Shanghai ( Via a snow bound Beijing ) I found myself in the studio complex of T and W productions. I was pleasantly surprised by the facilities - not super slick, but still on a par with most hire studios around the globe. The thing I found most bizarre was the amount of assistants who ran around after me ( I counted 9 at one point ), but it did make life easier - even if a lot of it did get lost in translation.

The shoot itself was a 4 shot campaign for McCanns in Shanghai, for the chinese launch of the Corvette. I found working with the creative team at McCanns, and the post production guys at T and W pretty good and I think the result speaks for itself. ( I've enclosed one of the shots in the blog) .

Once the madness of the shoot was over, I upped sticks to downtown Pudong to get a feel for Shanghai, and I'll post some of my personal shots from this during the next week or so. Well I hope to be back again in Shanghai, it was a lot of fun - but bloody hard work.

Electric Wheels & Eastern Promise

I've just come off the back of a nice little shoot for an electric scooter which we shot round the streets of trendy Hoxton in London for 3E and I'll post some images from the project over the next couple of weeks as post production is completed.

I'm very excited to be heading off to China this coming week to shoot a studio campaign for GM China - its a corvette, so it should be an interesting week. I hope to find some time to wizz around taking some personal pictures, its been many years since I was last in China and I know Shanghai is unrecocnisable now, compared to my last visit - so watch this space and I'll let you see what I see.
