Hello! I’t been a little while since I’ve updated here. I’ve been involved in a really exciting project over the past month or two as a film stills photographer and I’m happy to be able to share with you the very first part – so here goes. In September I spent 7 days working on set of the TV pilot filming ‘Whatever After’ which is a ‘A series of dark, witty and subversive fairy tales, re-imagined as allegories for the world today.’ The scripts are honestly brilliant, who knows where this project will end up?
I was there as film stills photographer, something which I am so keen to do more of now. It combines my love for theatre and documentary in one. I also generally helped out on set and stepped into a couple of roles too, including a magpie and a destitue woman (very glamorous!). I’m sure there are going to be quite a few blog posts on this coming out as I’m allowed to release more images and information, but for now I’m excited to share a bit of what I’ve been up to and some of the beautiful things I got to experience and photograph.
Throughout the week I made so many amazing new friends who I already miss. It reminded me of working in theatre – everyone working hard to come together and make something amazing and sharing the experience.
The hardest thing about the week was dealing with a new schedule (5am starts!) long days and how that would then effect my anxiety and energy levels. If anyone is interested, I may write a blog post about my experiences of anxiety on a film set and the little ways that worked for me to make the experience amazing.
But, for now, here’s a little sneak peak.

For now, thank you for reading and following my blog. I’ll be back soon! Please feel free to say hello.
Have a great day,
