I am a wildland firefighter and care about people being able to protect their homes, property and livelihood. This video tells an important story about Integrated Fire Management, and while this is not a very exciting sounding term, it is a vital aspect of being able to protect all you hold dear when a wildfire is raging close to your property. This video highlights this by interviewing a home owner who lost their home to an ember storm during a wildfire incident in the Cape Peninsula and shows how an entire home can be lost because of one small ember landing in the wrong place.

The Question: Live in the Moment and suck the marrow from Life, or just let time slide by?
As a Photographer I wanted to move beyond the still frame. This, one of my first attempts, was a collaboration with fantastic DP Will Bex. We grabbed a 16mm, some rolls of film, a couple of test lenses and spent a day driving around London (and a day in the studio) finding people and places to film that resonate with the words narrated over the visuals.
