Mundial Magazine: Europa League Final

By | Writing | No Comments

In May 2015, I was sent to Warsaw by Mundial Magazine to cover the Europa League Final. The article centred upon the experiences of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk fans, who’s team had reached the competition’s penultimate match but were experiencing civil war in their homeland of Ukraine.

 

Tasks included the submission of a 1200 word article (not published online yet), social media coverage and photographs.

Halcyon Magazine

By | Film, Photography, Writing | No Comments

In 2010, with four business partners, I founded Halcyon Magazine. With ten print issues, an active website and engaged social media, it became a cult publication, distributed throughout the UK and Europe.

Bored with the offering of men’s magazines at the time, we had a very clear aim with our quarterly. Halcyon was created to offer a credible alternative to crass, low-end ‘lads mags’ and ostentatious, out of touch publications. As Content Editor I’d plan, write and edit features, co-manage social media and website, as well as direct graphic design and photoshoots. A bit of everything, really. You can visit Halcyon Magazine’s website here.

Dry/Clean Initiative

By | Community, Film, Photography, Writing | No Comments

In the spring of 2016 I assisted the production of a video promoting The Dry/Clean Initiative.

A partnership between advertising agency Leo Burnett and charity Action Addiciton, The Dry/Clean initiative aims to take unclaimed clothes left in dry cleaners and distribute them to recovering addicts around the UK; the goal to improve employment prospects, making the recovering addicts more presentable in job interviews.

My role on this production was to create a shot list, assist camera, scout locations, direct casting and edit the footage.
