The Wedding

After two months and and lot of work, it’s finally here!!  This is the ‘save the date’ for the wedding Asuka and I are planning for next year. Enjoy it!! (Sorry about the sound! Trying to fix that and will re-upload later)

Right – well I’ve gotta go to a shoot now but here’s the video for now.  There’s a ton more stuff to come later.


Ok, back from my shoot!

Going to put up the rest of the material that we gathered during the two day shoot – putting all of this together and getting it done was probably the most challenging and rewarding experience I’ve ever had.  Firstly I have to give a big shout out to the people at Ginichi and Profoto Japan for graciously helping out with providing the ProDaylight setup and the Steadicam Pilot – both really awesome pieces of kit that really made the shooting easier. Also, I once again have to say a big thank you to all involved in helping to make this project a reality – it was a tough two days of shooting and a lot of on-the-job-learning but none of this would have been possible without the dedication and selflessness of all involved.
