I am excited to announce that I now have a website dedicated solely to Photo Escapes Films, the production company that I set up recently with John Alexander. We focus primarily on cinematic travel shorts, and are currently in the process of trying to get our ‘Photo Escapes’ series commissioned. Photo Escapes is a series of behind the scenes films about travel photography, offering tips on how to improve, but also offering information on the places we go and the people we meet. All the while, we make our films as visually beautiful and cinematic as possible.
Our most recent release is a three part series from Kerala in India. This was my second time in India, and I am completely hooked! You can find my favourite images from the two trips in the India Photography Highlights gallery.
Kerala offered wonderfully friendly locals, endless delicious food (quail egg curry is outrageously tasty) and a variety of fantastic photography opportunities; the misty Munnar hills, enthusiastic tea pickers, and angry monkeys! Here are the three videos, and a few of the photos that feature in the films.
We spent time photographing the Chinese fishing nets in Kochi, before heading further down the coast to Varkala. There, we befriended and photographed the local fishermen on Kappil Beach, watching in awe as they brought in 2km long fishing nets. Our final stop was the stunning mountain scenery around Munnar, where we ditched our luggage and travelled by scooter, giving us the freedom to get stuck into some landscape photography.
