Bafta award winning film photography.

We’re all celebrating this week at Wes Simpson Photography after a film I worked on providing press, publicity and behind the scenes photography was among the winners at the star-studded British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) night at the Royal Opera House in London at the weekend.

Last summer I was asked to work on a film being made in Liverpool called “Kelly + Victor” which tells the story of a young couple embarking on a passionate love affair. The film is an adaptation of Niall Griffiths’ acclaimed novel and was filmed on location in Liverpool for Film Four and stars Antonia Campell Hughes and Julian Morris.

I was approached to work on the film through word-of-mouth recommendation in the roll of “Production stills photographer” providing publicity, press and behind the scenes photography. It’s such a thrill to be associated with a project that has gone on to receive critical acclaim and high-profile success.

Welsh director Kieran Evans won the Bafta award for Kelly and Victor, which was shot on location in and around Liverpool last summer – The director won the Bafta for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer.
