The idea of working directly with Vineyards sits well alongside commissions from Advertising agencies and a fine art Practice.

The below are works from a series in constant progress.

They are exploring quick paced animations that have a photorealistic feel. The intention is to develop these with a Vineyard imbibing their personality and story.

The visual style, camera moves, edits all create something a bit different from the usual wine narratives, appealing to a younger more digital savvy, visually bombarded audience. 

We want to engage and entertain on social media platforms.

They are made from Photogrammetrically scanned objects from the real world.

Photogrammetry creates 3d meshes with photographic texturing.

These are then animated in 3d software.

I also work with traditional Photography so also below is a selection of Photography which is also of interest.


These are images from past vineyard shoots and food shoots.

I equally enjoy working with traditional photography.
