Mazda Cars shoot, Fogo Island, Newfoundland

It's been a busy few months at the end of 2014, beginning of 2015. First up a lovely car shoot for Mazda in Canada. Essentially designed as a 'road-trip' shoot with a Mazda 3 Sport. The location was Fogo Island off the Newfoundland coast, traditionally a close knit fishing community that was suffering after the long and ongoing moratorium on the Northern Cod Fishery on the Grand Banks in the north Atlantic. The community had been struggling for years with the impact of the collapse of the fishing and recently native Fogo Islander Zita Cobb who had left and made her fortune on the mainland returned with an extraordinary project to breath life back into the island: The Fogo Island Inn is a spectacular modernist luxury hotel and the symbol of Fogo's reinvention of itself as a hub of cutting edge art and design. All in all a fascinating story and fabulous backdrop for a car shoot.

Here's some pictures.....

International Color Awards

Good News this morning from The International Color Awards in Los Angeles.... Winner 'Honor of Distinction' in the Portraits category for my image of 'Charley' from the series 'Rockabilly Nights' plus 'Honorable Mentions' for three further photographs in the Americana and Sports categories.

I'll have to watch myself with all the u's missing from 'color' and 'honor' - might turn into an American!

Coney Island, NYC

With all the British-ness of the Scooter Club, here's some pictures from the US a couple of weeks back. Had an afternoon off in New York City and took the subway out to Coney Island for some clams and fries. I love it out there out of season when the fairground is closed midweek. What a joy to wile away a few hours on the boardwalk in the sunshine... easton_130416_7922
