I recently spent the weekend with a film crew from O2’s Guru YouTube channel. They are making a set of films about different creative people and how mobile technology fits into there life. I am the second person they shot, the first was trainer designer / customizer Daniel Reese, check out his film here. They filmed me as I documented an average weekend in Brighton which culminating in me putting up a photo montage on a beach hut. If what goes on on the video looks fun to you, you might want to check out one of my weekend photography courses so you can join the fun.
By the end of the weekend I shot a hell of a lot of images on a Lomo LCA, 5D, Olympus Mju ii, Nikonos V and of course an iPhone. At 5pm on Sunday afternoon I started sticking photos on the side of a beach hut in Hove. The montage I made was 1.8 by 1.8 meters and had about 200 photos in it, once completed I said a little peace to camera and it was ripped it down. I was happy with the finished result so I recreated it digitally as best I could going from stills of the video. Check out the montage below, you can zoom in to it like you would with google maps so you can see all the details.
Lets be clear this was not an average weekend in my life because we where starting at 6:30am to get to the swimming club in plenty of time and finishing shooting at 10pm. I love photography but I don’t think I could do it like this every weekend. It was a lot of fun and the guys from O2 where a blast.
