I'm back from deadlines, and I'm so excited to share my most recent project with you!
I've been working on a short film, which has been the focus of my life for uni since September.
This project is something that has been very close to home and emotional for me to be involved in...

This is my Grandad, Richard Hampton, age 92. The pictures above are very old, the first was taken back in 1923. His old age is starting to catch up with him and at the end of last year he was diagnosed with Dementia. It's something that has been very hard on our family, as it is with many other families too, and something that I thought would make the perfect motivational and inspirational video.


Although this is not the video that I am most proud of, it is the video that has meant the most to me... I just struggled to get too personal as I felt like it would upset my Grandad. This is one of the downsides of photography that I am often faced with as I often choose very serious and emotional subjects. 

So what do you all think of my newest short film!?
Hope you enjoy it and hope my grandparents give you some kind of inspiration!


  1. This is so beautifully put together. Bless your grandparents. So sweet. xx

  2. Aw this short film is absolutely beautiful, I love the mix of new and old film, you should definitely be proud of this! I love it!! xx

    1. Thank you! Really appreciate the support! I loved working with the old footage it was so nice to see!

  3. This has honestly brought me to tears! (seriously, I'm crying). Your grandparents seem like such beautiful people. I am so sorry to hear you grandfather has dementia. I will keep him and your family in my prayers. Cherish your moments with him, and never forget to explore his past from his eyes as long as he has it to remember.
    (ps, I know what you're going through, how hard it can be, and how all of this can feel. If you ever need a friend to talk to - xoxo)

    1. They really are beautiful people, I'm so proud to call them my grandparents.
      Thanks for the wishes, I really am enjoying his old stories.
      Continue to remember the good in your own grandad!
      And thanks for the email address, always good to know someone's there
