Architects for Total Guitar Magazine


The Black Arm Band

A while back I spent some time with my friend Shellie Morris filming a personal project on the Black Arm Band. They played 2 nights at The Barbican in London and toured the world to universal acclaim. I created a 15 minute feature on the band and their powerful message. The Black Arm Band created music with western European and traditional Aboriginal musical instruments and sang in Aboriginal language and English Language. The Black Arm band represented what reconciliation should be. A mutual respect of cultures to create a new culture of acceptance, celebration and recognition of wrongs done in the past. Australia still has a long way to go in terms of equality, the Black Arm Band represents and gives a vision of an Australia I hope for. Below is a teaser. I’ll release the full feature on Australia Day the 26th.

Purson for Classic Rock Magazine 

I headed out in search of Gnomes for this shoot for Classic Rock magazine. All the way out to North Devon's famous Gnome Reserve, I bet you're thinking huh?? Gnome Reserve... They've got 3000 of the little critters out there. It's with the band Purson which are psychedelic rock n roll. 


Here's a recent commission which involved many aspects which we excel at  (music video creation, social media management, photography). James was recently on tour with Bullet For My Valentine across South America. He was commissioned to direct, shoot, edit and produce the bands latest music video for the song Army of Noise. He was a one man production house filming multiple shows and cutting togeather footage from different shows across different countries in South America to produce one dynamic live performance based music video. While out on tour James was also producing short edits and photographing stills which were used across the bands social media accounts. His 15 years experience as a music photographer enabled him to execute such an intense brief. 


Below is the offical video for Army of Noise delivered to Bullet For My Valentine's Vevo account


We worked with 'My Dying Bride' to create a cinematic music video for their latest song 'Feel The Misery'.  Directed by James Sharrock, this video follows the tragic tale of a young woman who drowns after a shipwreck.  Aaron, (lead singer of MDB) plays a hermit who lives in a chapel built into the side of a cliff, discovers her washed up body and carries her back to the Chapel to mourn her death.

street art with google

Earlier in the Year we were commissioned by We Are Social  and worked with head creative Nick Hearne through VNA magazine to work on 2 of Google's "Street Art with Google" features. James travelled to Germany and France to be the photographer as part of the team that produced features on the artists Mad C and Kashink. Great content was produced, new friends made and a great time had. We like to make sure work is always a lot of fun!



Below is the video that was produced alongside our photography, directed by Tom Barbor-Might for the project.

We spent a week in the studio with the mighty British Metal band 'Bullet For My Valentine'.  We were briefed to create a 3 Part Web Series to document 'The Making of Venom' - the bands latest album.  The videos are being distributed on the bands VEVO channel on YouTube, and across social platforms Facebook and Twitter to promote the upcoming album.  Check out the first instalment here:

Our video brief was to create  short, sharp teaser to build hype and excitement around the release of  Bullet for my Valentine's latest album Venom.  This Teaser kicked off a four part web series we created for the biggest British Metal band in 20 years.  With distribution amongst Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram our aim was to grab the audience immediately and add a little shock factor. 

Within the first 10 minutes of upload we bagged 12,000 views, 1,500 Likes, 300 Shares. 


Our original video feature on Adam 'Nergal' Darski of Polish Metal Band 'Behemoth' takes a deeper look at the transition of Nergal's persona from normality in the dressing room to full character on stage.  Atmosphere was our goal, creating mystery, tension, and a real emotional connection with the audience in this intimate feature. 


We teamed up with My Accomplice, VNA Magazine, and Phantoms of Space to create a behind the scenes feature of Run The Jewels' latest music video 'Lie, Cheat, Steal'.
