Pictures and Time-lapse of Brighton i360’s foundation pouring

This weekend was the first phase of the Brighton i360 foundation pour. A total of 2500 tonnes of concrete was poured into the foundations over 12 hours starting at 6am on Saturday morning. On average a cement truck was coming on site every 5 minutes to one of 3 pumps. The pumps can put the concrete anywhere in the foundation. There was a small group of men for each pump using vibrators to remove air from the concrete and to make it level. I was on site taking pictures and I also shot a time-lapse of the pour.

I’ve been working for the Brighton i360 for almost a year now. I’ve previously posted pictures from my visit to Cif in Holland where the tower is being made and I also posted posted the first 8 month of a time-lapse which is documenting the entire build.

Simon Cooke’s record breaking coldest charity channel swim

Simon Cooke is about to embark on an incredible record breaking journey. Next week he will be on standby to swim the English channel earlier than anyone has done before, this will mean his swim will be colder than any cross channel swim before him around 11-12 °C (51.8-53.6 °F). He is a fellow member of Brighton Swimming club and has been in training for over a year doing 6 hour sea water training sessions, in comparison at this time of year (May) I swim for 20-30 minutes before I get really cold. He is raising money for a local Charity Amaze which gives information, advice and support to parents of children with disabilities in Brighton & Hove. You can donate to his simon cooke fundraising page.

Time-lapse workshop at the Snap photography festival

A few days ago I taught a time-lapse workshop at the Snap photo festival. Usually for this type of event I would of ran a workshop based around film, lomo or something along those lines. As Snap was in deepest rural Wales film development was not going to be an option.

Cameras and TriggerTraps

One of my digital loves is time-lapse and I’m also currently in the middle of a commission to shoot a two year time-lapse so I decided my workshop would be based around that. Unless the people in my workshop had cameras with a built in Intervalometer (the thing that triggers the camera repeatedly) they where going to need one. Luckily TriggerTrap were kind enough to lend me a whole bunch for their smart phone triggers. TriggerTrap is more than just a Intervalometer, with the aid of their dongle it turns any iOS / Android device into sophisticated camera trigger, it’s not just for time-lapses you can also use it to trigger your camera with sound and movement amongst other things, check out the full range of features on their website

Miniaturesque Slinkachu Exhibition at Andipa Gallery London

Miniaturesque is an exhibition showing new work shot in London by Photographer / Street artist Slinkachu. Slinkachu builds little worlds with model people with a black comidic over tone, if you like Modern Toss and David Shrigle you will love his work. Most of the actual art works that Slinkachu makes are left in the places he installs them. For most of his work the only permanent record is the photographs he shoots, he leaves the physical objects in place which in all likelihood means they will be destroyed by the hustle and bustle of the city.
