More Walk Magazine Front Covers  

“Ross has really raised the bar for our magazine photography through his expertise in shooting outdoors, even in challenging conditions. He’s completely unflappable, totally committed and indefatigably cheerful on every shoot – an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Matt Jones, Editor, WALK Magazine.

Here are the results from four seasonal photo shoots with the Ramblers Association and the River Group. Don’t let the beautiful views fool you, we battled some pretty brutal weather conditions to get these shots. The summer shot was at the end of a day of biblical rain storms in North Wales, while the winter cover was shot in Glen Coe, Scotland, which dealt us fog, snow, rain and deep, boot filling bogs. Couple that with my deranged assistant nearly spilling my entire Nikon camera kit in to a stream whilst jumping it with the camera bag partially open and you have the potential for disaster, luckily it was avoided and all worked out well in the end.

John Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Drum Kit  

“Wow Ross …Truely beautiful work … Thanks.”

Robert Plant

 

 

This was a project for Robert Plant to shoot John Bonham’s legendary 1968 Gray Pearl Ludwig drum kit (No 664107) which was used to create the thunderous drums on “When the Levee Breaks” on Led Zeppelin 4 recorded at Headley Grange.

The shots where produced for an auction to sell off the kit to raise funds for a statue of the drummer in his home town of Redditch.

Status Quo – Access All Areas  

LOVE the Union Chapel shots Ross – Well done!

Simon Porter, Status Quo’s Manager

Last summer I did three  shoots for “The Mighty Quo”

Two at festivals, Car Fest South and Astonbury in Oxford and an amazing acustic show at the Union Chapel, Islington. Fortunately we had “access all areas” and we could shoot the whole show. Unfortunatley the band suffered quite a blow after the first show in Oxford with Rick Parfitt be taken ill shortly after a show in Turkey. Francis and the band had to react quickly to change their line up and honor their touring schedule.

Sadly Rick passed away later in the year. The few times we met him he was always in good spirts and was full of funny rock’n’roll stories. He had amazing stage presence and as you’d expect knew exactly how to put on a great show. A real loss to music and a true legend of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Snow and Rock Aw16/17 Photo Shoot in Morzine  

“How could that have not made the cover, it’s a killer shot!

In fact so happy with all the stuff you nailed this year as is the wider business.”

Jez Baxter – Creative Director – Snow and Rock / Costwold Outdoor

 

 

Here are a few shots from the Snow & Rock AW16-17 Catalogue photo shoot in Morzine last winter. I have to say the conditions where pretty challenging with the snow pack and the weather but as usual it all came good in the end. I used my new Nikon D5 for this shoot and my new 200-500 mm zoom lens

Zakti Active Photo Shoot  

“Ross has worked with us launching our new brand Zakti Active, he really captured what the brand is about.

Such an eye for detail, the results look fantastic!”

Sam Jones, Head of Woman’s Wear.

Here’s another shoot with Zakti, shot on location in Saas Fee, Switzerland. We had fantastic weather for the whole shoot, I processed it all using Capture One and Photoshop and I’m pretty sure it was the last shoot on the Nikon D4 before the arrival of the D5.

Castore Clothing Photo Shoot  

‘Working with Ross was an absolute pleasure, he was calm, collected and always cheerful. Whatever challenges we put in front of him (there where a lot) he went above and beyond.

Ross worked with us every step of the way from planning right through to the final shots and really captured what the brand is all about.

We get asked on a weekly basis who our photographer was, I couldn’t recommend Ross more. Planning our next shoot as we speak.’

Phil Beahon – Director Castore Clothing

These pictures are some of the results  from a shoot with Castore Sports Clothing. It was great working with these guys, they pretty much let me go for it whilst trying to stay within there brief, they where also quite keen to push the boundaries a bit with the retouch… very refreshing!

I used my Nikon D5 for all of the shots with the Elinchrom Quadra’s for some of the shots. I used the CamRanger for live review.

Ski Club of Great Britain Kühtai Photo Shoot 2015  

“Shooting world class skiing images in the often uncompromising mountain environment can be a real challenge, but Ross has never failed to deliver the goods for us.

The extra value is how easy Ross is to work with and how he always tries to find a solution that works”

Alyn Morgan, Ski Club of Great Britain.

 

Back to Kühtai again in 2015 for the Ski Club of Great Britains ski test, we had pretty amazing conditions out there, blue sky and big storms proved to be the perfect mix.

So here is a selection of yoga, active and dance shots I did for the hottest brand to hit the high streets this year, Zakti.
