Very excited to be shooting film for the first time in a decade, and on a spectacularly beautiful day in South West Ireland. We’re shooting stills and re-enactment scenes for a film about the Blasket Islands for Ireland’s Office of Public Works. In order to produce images that have a strong period feel we’re using 6 x 6 medium format film and a vintage Rolleiflex camera. You can see the results here.
Seduced by film: a quick comparison between film and digital stills.
A spectacular week of filming on the Blasket Islands in the far South West of Ireland, for a short documentary for the Blasket Island Visitor Centre.

We had the great privilege to film an interview with photographer and film-maker Nick Knight today, as part of a film about body image, diversity and fashion. Nick, whose incredible images mark him out as one of the world’s top fashion photographers, offered up some provocative insights on the emerging digital era. For him ‘photography is over’, it died a death at the start of this century to be replaced by modern, digital image-making, a new medium of immense artistic freedom and possibility, which has shaken off the dead hand of ‘truth’ and moved into a fresh, creative space where the visual imagination can run wild and images can be endlessly controlled, manipulated, adjusted and re-invented. It’s new world, in which we’re just scratching the surface, where Nick’s work delivers an inspiring glimpse of the possibilities – see it here.
After a busy day of filming at Nationwide Building Society in Derby I couldn’t resist this shot of the East Midlands Power Station looking moody and threatening against a chilly winter sunset. The footage, captured in crystal clear 5k is available to buy through our online collections at Nimia.
