M2 Car Transporter Fire - Cars Exploding in lorry fire on motorway - 5D Mark2 HD Video

I was driving on the M2 this week when a car transporter caught fire. This was the first real test of the video capability of the new Canon 5D Mark 2 camera which performed excellently. You can see the video taken with the 5D Mark2 here

You can see some of the photos I took here

The BBC used the image for their Kent website
and Kentonline also used the video footage - but due to the problems editing the 5DII movie format they videoed the screen of their computer!!

Filming of BBC Drama Emma by Jane Austen

The filming of BBC drama "Emma" by Jane Austen took place in Chilham Kent during April 2009. The drama stars Romola Garai, Jonny Lee Miller, Michael Gambon, Tamsin Greig, Robert Bathurst and Jodhi May.

The four-part adaptation by Sandy Welch's of Austen's comic masterpiece Emma was produced for BBC One. Jonny Lee Miller (Byron, Eli Stone, Trainspotting) plays Mr Knightley, Emma's shrewd and attractive neighbour, whose strength of character is in sharp contrast to her father, providing a welcome counterpart to the headstrong protagonist.

You can see our photos of the cast of Emma taken during the filming here

Page 3 Idol Glamour Modelling Competition

The Sun Page 3 run the annual Page 3 Idol competition to find the next Page 3 girl. One of our local models Kelly is in the competition this year, along with 4 other models I have shot in the last 12 months (Laura Jayne, Sophie, Carley, Nicky and Kelly)

Kelly's Page 3 Idol photos on website

Unfortunately there are some appalling photos in the competition this year and means that a potential model may miss out purely because no-one can see what they look like. So it is well worth investing some money in some clear professional shots to boost your chances in the competition.

There is still time to apply to please get in touch if you would like to book a shoot.
