Wolf Blass Wines - Sky Sports Sponsorship

Commission I recently shot for Wolf Blass Wines to promote their sponsorship of Sky Sports Ashes



Hurrah its almost Christmas & I’m still able to watch cricket…must mean only one thing…The Ashes!!  Which is good for two reasons. The first being that we get to see the England boys do what they do best, drink afternoon tea & whoop the Aussies in their own land....although the latter maybe looking a little less certain with the results from the first two tests and today looking even more shakey.  Although, the second joyous reason of course is that I can finally share some of the shots I did for Wolf Blass Wines for their sponsorship of Sky Sports coverage of the Ashes.


I was commissioned to do the shoot back in the summer & have to say that it was a brilliant two days in which I got to meet & shoot some of my childhood heroes & cricket legends such as Michael Vaughan, Andrew Strauss, Graham Thorpe, Bob Willis, Mark Butcher, Mathew Hoggard...the list goes go on and on.


The location in which the shoot took place was pretty bloody spectacularly special too, The Getty Family’s Estate, Wormsley Park.  We were given access to the family library which was exactly like how you would imagine it to be, but even bigger and full of some amazing pieces such as as a first edition of ChaucerBen Jonson's annotated copy of Spenser, and Shakespeare Folios…lets just say it was pretty grand.

I was shooting alongside the film crew doing the TV campaign on the day so was a full on hectic but great day for all involved. 

Big shout out to all the crew that helped out on the day.
