Upper Air

"A couple’s weekend in the hills goes off-track when they have to share a walkers’ hut with an eccentric resident."

This project was a unique challenge shooting almost entirely with natural light on a remote fell in Cumbria with minimal crew. It was a great chance to return to the landscape photography I'd developed during my time shooting documentaries but this time with a more delibrate style.

Upper Air is currently on the festival circuit and has screened at a few festivals.
