I love making films. They’re more challenging to master than still frame photos, but somehow even more satisfying when you put one together that works. It just brings that moment to life so much more. I discovered cinemagraphs a while ago through Jaime Beck, who coined the term with her partner and is very much a master of cinemagraphs (borderlining art.)

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have probably seen a bit about the journey of moving away from London to just outside the M25 in Woking, but I wanted to share a bit more here to give a bit of background to a few likely posts coming up. James and I…
