Arnhel shot this great 4 page feature on the living legend that is George Clinton!

Playing at London's Metropolis Studios with the likes of Joss Stone, as well as the P-Funk All Stars, Arnhel captured the live action as well as some truly brilliant portraits of the man himself.

I just hope i can still funk it like George at 72 years of age!

This is Mario Cuomo the lead singer of The Orwells, five 17 year olds straight out of high school from Chicago and they are amazing!

Colin, who saw them on the Letterman show one night, literally wrote to their manager to say how much he'd like to shoot the guys.

With the bands love of The Strokes, who better for them to hang out with and be photographed by on a visit to NYC!?

Dir: Dean Rogers
Prod Co: Royle Productions

Dean Directed the new commercial for the BHF, and it was obvious why he was chosen. His amazing ability to capture human emotion, through a true empathy with his subjects, adds to the beauty of the piece.

Producing a short personal film for each family of the loved one lost, Dean created a 'life story' for each person by gathering personal photos, letters etc which the families saw for the first time on the shoot day. These short films were projected onto a screen, with Dean & team filming from behind the screen, allowing the families to open up honestly as they watched the story of their loved ones.

The second of three new ads for VW's 'Well Worth It' campaign - involved elements that you probably wouldn't expect to put together if you wanted an easy day in the studio....

20 real cats looking calm, surrounding by a huge sprinkler system with puddles the size of ponds and a car that needed precision lighting... easy peasy if you're Luke.

All in a days work.

Yet again Luke comes up with an innovative way to shoot accessories without confirming to the fashion or beauty ideals we expect to see in editorial...and again his colourful style, and twist of subtle humour works a treat.

With huge stretched carpet 'canvases', Luke worked out his jigsaw of holes / accessories / placement of what and where as the shoot went along, keeping things fluid and fun. Textures and colours setting off the product clearly in each of the sets.

Pub: ES Magazine

Only 24 years of age and already a millionaire, DJ Avicci's path to fame & fortune has been a rapid one which initially led to excesses which saw the young DJ end up in hospital twice.

Now more level headed, Stockholms music master is global success, which also means his schedule is tight...which is why Hamish had to work his wonders in the 30 minute slot the DJ had time for in between gigs galore.

You can't say he isn't working hard for his money!

As part of Lucozades' huge YES campaign, Dean was commissioned by Grey to shoot three new print executions for them. Two of which will run now, with the third running later in the year when English summertime kicks in, and the festival season is in full swing.

Realism and true enjoyment of our cast were key to the series of ads. Dean & his teams' creation of the perfect party environment, approaching it with both film lighting and atmosphere were essential in creating these brilliant, upbeat and lively images.
