ESSENCE COSMETICS | SHINE LAST & GO | BTS
Had the pleasure of working with Essence Cosmetics when they came to Barcelona towards the end of 2018. They wanted to team up with the amazing Myong Hunoh (DOP) to produce new content for their launch of ‘SHINE LAST & GO’
This is the second time working with Myong, and if you’ve seen his work you will understand why he is one of my favourite DOPs to work with. I shot BTS for this project and it was an absolute pleasure watching him work and I was lucky enough to have some images used in the final campaign.
Big thanks to Barcelona Production for accommodating me and making the shoot so special ❤❤❤
MAHIA RAPA NUI BARCELONA
Since moving to Barcelona I’ve found myself caught up in many things.
One of the things I wasn’t expecting, was to be welcomed within a group of people from varying backgrounds to myself, and learn about the history, traditions and love of music & dance from Chile and The Easter Island.
This is the start of photographing every member of @mahiarapanui.bcn as themselves and then wearing the outfits worn by musicians and dancers 🗿
PONT DEL PETROLI, BARCELONA SPAIN | 04/02/2018 | 08h05
Managed to catch the sunrise before the rain came in 🤙🏼 I did however get pretty wet feet! 🤦♂️ all worth it for yet another Beautiful Barcelona Sunrise ❤️

TRIPOD & REMOTE SHUTTER
This photo was taken as the sun had breached the horizon and was visible through the clouds in the distance. The rain was moving in from behind me which led to wonderful skies! I managed to time it well as It didn't start raining until I had packed up, but I did however get soaked by an incoming wave! Luckily inexpensive trainers and a liking for seawater I managed to keep my EQ away from any danger!
The Pont del Petroli is a dock of Badalona built for the unloading of petroleum products from tankers and, since 2009, remodeled as a space for citizen and scientific use. It is located on the beach of Pont del Petroli , opposite the Passeig Marítim of the Progrés neighborhood , entering the sea about 250 m with a height of 6 m.
Its a super easy place to get to when in Barcelona! For me, I headed to the Arc de Triomfe Metro Station and jumped on a Rodalie out of town. Get one that stops of a Badalona (three stops from the metro) and turn your head to sea :)
Having watched a few videos online regarding interesting techniques to achieve in camera transitions, I spent a few hours walking around Barcelona one Sunday afternoon experimenting with what I had learnt. The results are pretty interesting and something I’m definitely going to try and utilise more.
SELF DIRECTED MINI SPORTS CAMPAIGN
Having seen various campaigns come out over the summer months I wanted to try and replicate what I had seen in these campaigns. Shot in and around Barcelona on a sunny Sunday Afternoon.
Massive thanks to Narayan Brewer, Alevtina Kalinicheva and Barcelona based MUA Mante Silva! 🙌
THREE HOURS & UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES
A couple hours on the beach and a quick edit to pass the time while producing somthing that will always bring a smile to my face! Video hasn't really been my thing but Im slowly starting to appreciate its use and power. A long road ahead but every step is progress.
KICK PUSH KICK PUSH & COAST
500 DAYS IN A 90 CM BED | 500 DIAS COMPARITIENDO UNA CAMA DE 90 CM
'Work, finish, race home, shower, pack, don't forget the passport and drive to the airport. Sleep in the terminal, wake up, pass through security and board the plane. Gaze through the clouds and await the time you've been waiting for - The hand thats been missed and the laughter thats brought back to life with the shortening of distance. A 90cm bed being home for what is always too short of time, before pushing it all away and leaving once more.'
Long distance can be painful, but for the right person its not a chore. Its not even hard work, It is what you make of it. When you find that someone, whoever it may be, distance is just the answer to a question that doesn't need answering.
I made this video as a reminder that when things get tough, you should never give up on the things that bring happiness.
ITS ALWAYS ONE DAY FURTHER FROM THE LAST, AND ONE DAY CLOSER TO THE NEXT.
THROW BACK TO THE BEST HOLIDAY - WHERE HAS THE LAST 4 YEARS GONE!?
