If you are looking at this site you already know about the moving beauty of a still image. Whether on a gallery wall, in a book or casually glanced at in a magazine a superbly crafted photograph has a powerful intangible quality.
The future of high definition display media is an exiting prospect for me. In this new arena I am currently mixing photography with my experience as a lighting cameraman and producing projects I am calling 'Moving Stills'. (Hey, I have to call it something). My approach is to shoot and retouch products and portraits with the intensity of a still image but with the added dimension of motion. The ’Moving Stills’ projects bring a jewel-like quality to your imagery for web, portable devices and future HD display media. New galleries of this work will be launched on this website in the very near future.
Recent ‘Moving still’ project produced by Philip Gatward for Thinker/Doer.
