Showreels, Aerial Photography, Hotels & Food
In the below reel some examples of work, both stills and video. To see more specialised work visit our production company RUNNING REEL.
From quiet luxurious boutique residencies to grander business hotels, we’ve seen many and photographed them. Wherever I go in the world I can’t get away from the fact that hotels have an attraction beyond the ordinary night sleep. I’ve been lucky to stay in some amazing places that would normally be beyond my budget and was given opportunities to discover what makes those places special.
We had a great experience in Djakarta, the Alila, with the most fabulous people working in this place and with Eric Faivre, the GM, himself a keen photographer. After about 5 days of work we created an extensive library of photographs, covering all aspects of the hotel and especially the warm and wonderful staff.

Coffee Rub Souphattra Spa
A beautiful hotel in the Hertiage town of Luang Prabang. Highly recommended for your next stay; www.souphattra.com
The Souphattra Hotel is a remarkable space, designed from the ground up to embody the very best of both traditional Laotian and French Colonial design elements.
The overall ambiance is strikingly elegant and perfectly compliments the ancient city of Luang Prabang. We offer a selection of accommodation, with each option perfectly suited to different types of guest. Every room features beautiful fixtures and amenities, designed with our unifying theme of “Timeless Elegance” in mind.
World Volunteer brings over people to work in parts of Laos as volunteers and help villagers with income creation. This short promo is just one example. We also created more short film versions that give insight into the work of this organisation.
They help to build houses near villages which are then used for travellers to stay. The bungalows are constructed using adobe clay bricks from the local soil. After finalising the dwellings they are managed by the villagers and incomes go to the village fund to help with improvements locally.
FRIENDS WITHOUT A BORDER
The Lao Friends Hospital for Children opened in 2015 and has since then made an enormous positive impact on the provision of high quality care in Northern Laos. We have been fortunate to be able to help in this process with providing high quality media material to help raise funds to continue to give free healthcare. You can find more in depth materials we created on the Film – NGO page on this site.
The LFHC is a project set up by Friends Without A Border based out of New York; Visit them here: www.fwab.org

Commercials and Promos
We create films that help and aim to promote destinations. These short messages often start as a concept before we start the production process and content creation and they are made in a truthful manner. We work with the reality and let reality dictate the content of these messages often resulting in beautiful products.
The above films were made as part of a larger project to make a 50 minute documentary about Luang Prabang. From the amazing material we collected we also created a set of short commercials that are used to help promote this UNESCO World Heritage town.
SHOOTING FOR STOCK - GETTY IMAGES
What is Stock Footage?
Stock footage are video clips to be used for all kinds of purposes like social media, ad-campaigns etc.The clips are often quite short around 10 to 15 seconds of generic subjects that sell. Content creators and advertisers can use these often highly professionally produced shots for a wide variety of publications.
As a filmmaker it often is an investment as the shoots can be expensive, creating videos of high quality. It easy can fail too if the created materials are too niche and don’t sell well, hence a lot of research is required and working with a creative director like Alwyn Gosford at Getty, can help with fine tuning the shot-lists.
