Claudia’s new life

We are photographers who specialise in the area of technology and construction.

We would assume that most of the technology that we film and photograph adds to the quality of peoples lives.

Recently we had the privilege of working with a company in Heidelberg in Germany, Touch Bionics.

They specialise in the provision of bionic hands for the clients.

When we work with a client in a new area of technology.  We find ourselves doing a considerable amount of research so that when we work with the client, we become a contributing member of the team.  The more I read about prosthetic hands, the more I became impressed with the technology of Touch Bionics.

Prior to this I didn’t know that an amputee really only has the use of two muscles to activate their prosthetic hand. Yet in daily life we need a series of grips to enable us complete tasks. to get over this conundrum, touch bionics developed technology by which their clients can use their iPhone  App to get the prosthetic hand to assume one of 36 pre-formed grips.  Not only have they done this but they have left a possibility for users to establish their own grip, install it onto the app for other people to use and allow the fellow users upload the grip to their phone.

Not happy to rest on their laurels,touch bionics have developed a system of proximity chips.  This allows the user to place their hand over the chip to assume the hand configuration required for many tasks.  For instance, if preparing to type, the user would have the hand over the chip and the hand would immediately go into the shape useful for typing.

For this video, we met Claudia, a German skydiving champion.  As we spoke with her.  We started to realise the incredible value that this new bionic hand is for her in our daily life.

As she says in the documentary, “I thank God for my new hand”.

As photographers you’d expect to be just observers in the life we lead and the projects we illustrate.  This is not so, we totally immerse ourselves in our clients projects.  We read and research, we look up online, and we talk to backroom staff at our clients companies. This allows us combine our photographic skills with our marketing background and produce images vital to the marketing of our clients products

Once a shoot or video is compleated, like butterflies, we move onto the next project.  The next challenge, the next idea, the next excitement and help the next client market their technology or product, and then we move on again.

At the moment we are finishing videos for a logistics company, a medical device company and a country pub.  What great variety, what great fun.




Catch the Wind

Catch the Wind( click to see video)


You never really know how things will turn out.some time ago I was commissioned to travel to northern Ireland to film a new windfarm for the electricity company.  I drove the 4 1/2 hours to the location and produced quite a nice video.

A few days later when working with my editor.  He said those dreadful words ” I think you have a problem”

And when we looked closely at the footage on his screen we could see that indeed I did have a problem.  There was a little dust on my sensor and while not very obvious was still a flaw on my images.

I phoned my client who said he had liked the video and when I mentioned the dust, he looked carefully at his laptop screen and said yes.  I think we do have a problem.

Although the dust could be cloned out during postproduction.  I felt the best thing would be to reshoot the project.

So with this in mind I drove up to Northern Ireland again.  Again it was 4 1/2 or trip giving me a nine hour return trip for the project.

As I drove north towards the town of Sligo.  I notice that the day was getting quite dull.  As I am an optimist I continued driving but the day kept on getting darker and darker.

About 20miles from the location I encountered fog.  By the time I got to the foot of the mountain.  I could hardly see the front of my car because of the very dense fog.  Because I travel so far I decided I would continue up the mountain and if necessary, sleep in the car and wait for the weather to clear.

As I drove up the mountain I emerged out of the fog into the most wonderfully blue sky. The quality of light was exceptional and I could hardly believe my eyes with such beautiful shooting conditions.

If you look at this video you will see that most of the images were framed as I would frame a still image.  Having framed each image.  I just let the wind generators provide all the movement.

After a few hours filming I had everything I needed in the can.  As I was preparing to leave the windfarm.  I looked behind me and so that the fog was creeping up the road towards me and engulfing some of the generators.

At the end of the shoot  I drove home and enjoyed every minute of the journey, realising that we had done the honourable thing by offering to reshoot the project and were rewarded with a magnificent day and a great shooting opportunity.

Enjoy the video.
