Over the past 5 years or so I got back into film photos in a big way. Shooting rolls and rolls, usually on an Olympus trip 35 (Among other cameras). I have built up quite an archive of images that I shoot merely out of habit and never really doing anything other than processing and storing them.
I shot a series of images over the course of three days to promote boroughs of London for Online and app based holiday accommodation company Air BnB. I had to cover 10 Boroughs, with a quick turnaround, highlighting all the sights in different ways: food, culture, and the character of the UK’s capital. Along with my assistant, we covered around 50,000 steps and the great proportion on the vast metropolis! It was a lot of fun, and I feel like I have managed to capture London in ways I have not thought to look before. A fun shoot.
When you first glance the outside of the Pig’s Ear, even when you walk through the door, you are unsure if this is a place accepting of anyone other than the most hardened local! Especially when I had just spent the majority of my time in Peterborough walking the streets on a food tour, sampling the local micro breweries craft ale, and leisurely punting around Little lake on a stand-up paddle board. Still, I was assured THIS was the place to go. And it definitely was! From the first pitcher of beer in mini glasses, to the impossibly hard quiz I don’t think anyone could have answered (was it the beer, or sour grapes?!). The Pig’s Ear proved to be a warm and welcoming highlight of the trip to Ontario, and a place I hope top re-visit when I return.
