It was pretty impressive! It is the highest natural waterfall in Estonia with height about 8 meters!

To be honest I had no idea what I wanted to achieve or what I was going to do. 

I came up with this though.

The last flight of The British Army's Army Air Corps Lynx Helicopter. https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2018/1/the-last-flight-of-the-lynx Didn't realise that this was such a big thing.

I was along for the ride in the back of a Chinook to cover the last part of the day as the Lynx flew over London. I also did a little rough video before they took off. It was a cold long day but a good one! 

So many people turned up to see them all over the country.

I guess people had a genuine connection to these aircraft. From being flown around in them to keeping them in the sky.

I also managed to drop a Psy-Trance tune into this video...

Here are the photos I took.

The Army is to pay special tribute as one of its most ubiquitous aviation assets bows out of service.

The Lynx helicopter has had a long and distinguished career with the British Army stretching back nearly 40 years. Described as a primary battlefield utility helicopter, the venerable Lynx entered service back in 1978 and since then has been used to: destroy tanks, evacuate the wounded, gather intelligence, provide humanitarian support, rescue those in peril, wow the crowds at airshows and much more besides. It’s seen service across the globe from the freezing plains of Northern Canada to the dust bowls of the Middle East and has supported British troops on active service in Bosnia, Kuwait and Afghanistan.

Today, To mark the Lynx’s decommissioning from British Army service, the Army Air Corps flew five of the last remaining airframes from RAF Odiham in Hampshire, where they are based, on a commemorative tour around England taking in some of the sites and locations to which the aircraft is most fondlt associated: Middle Wallop, Upavon, Yeovil, Wattisham to name a few. The flight culminated in an impressive V5 ‘air procession’ along the length of the River Thames over Central London.

Where have I heard this before an emotional response to music https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2018/1/where-have-i-heard-this-before-and-emotional-response-to-music I love music. I will have something playing constantly if I can. Hip Hop is probably the main genre that I enjoy listening to. I read an article recently that some people have no emotional response to music, its called Anhedonia. 

Anhedonia is the inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable, e.g. exercise, hobbies, singing, sexual activities or social interactions.

I love how Spotify just 'knows' On this week's discover weekly it played me this-

 

I think, where have I heard this before...?

Here it is-

I love listening to tunes and finding out where all the samples come from. J-Dilla samples some tunes that you would have never even know existed. 

 

Also from films. Me and Stan were watching Antz. I think where have I heard this before?

 

Then it clicks, Jedi Mind Tricks sampled it! Some of the darkest hip hop, sampling a kids film. 



Not Photography related but I may start using this blog for more content like this. See if people are interested and actually read it.

Across from me at meal times and update https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2017/11/across-from-me-at-meal-times I have been lazy on here, haven't I?!?!

To be honest I have been mega busy since my last post. In work, I have mainly been doing video jobs, I have been training to pass the recruitment process to become a firefighter for Avon Fire and Rescue (I was successful), travelled to Estonia, Poland, Lithuania and spent 3 weeks in the Caribbean for Operation Ruman for the disaster relief from Hurricane Irma and Maria. Oh and we had another child, Sonny.

Anyway, I was scrolling through my phone recently and released that I take a lot of pictures whilst we eat our food at home or out and about. Not sure why I do it, maybe because it shows them in a completely natural way, no posing, doing something that they do everyday. It also captures some great moments between them both. 

Here are a few,

British Army Bushcraft | Filming the new 'How To' series https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2017/6/british-army-bushcraft-filming-the-new-how-to-series Earlier on this year, I and another Army Photographer spent a couple of days down in Newquay shooting the new 'How To' series of videos for the British Army.

This was filmed in one morning using a Canon C500 and Nikon D5 on a DJI Ronin stabiliser. It was edited using Adobe Premiere Pro CC and the graphics were created in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

Keep an eye out for more coming soon from us and we hope you learn something!

British Army CRIBS | FOXHOUND | OPERATION SHADER | IRAQ https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2017/4/british-army-cribs-foxhound-operation-shader-iraq Earlier this year whilst I was in Iraq covering 4 RIFLES on OPERATION SHADER I had two days to kill before my flight home.

I decided to do another 'MTV Cribs' style video, this time the Foxhound would be the vehicle.

I had and Idea of how I was going to shoot it. From shots to the style of edit including the music to go with it. I shot it all on the Nikon D5 using only stills equipment as I was not out there to capture video.

I have already started planning the next vehicle!

Hope you enjoy it!

A few weeks in Iraq with 4 RIFLES https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2017/3/a-few-weeks-in-iraq-with-4-rifles So I recently went to Iraq. The last time I was there was in 2007 for OP TELIC 10. If you would have asked me back then If I could see myself back there I would have laughed.

I was in Al Asad Airbase west of Baghdad to cover 4 RIFLES on OP SHADER.

I spent two weeks there altogether covering everything from the Royal Engineers fitting out the new LAD, members of the BPC (Building Partnership Capacity) team training Iraqi soldiers in the fight against Daish and even a visit from the Secretay of State for Defence!

These are some of the photos I took onOPERATION HERRICK 13/14 whilst in Kabul working as a Multiple 2ic within Souter Force Protection and Transport Company. (This wasn't us but gives you an idea what we did)

I really enjoyed my time out there. It was hard work at times but I got to see some amazing things experience some good and bad things and captured some great pictures out there.

The rest can be found here- Kabul, Afghanistan

The Beagle and the Boy, Jasper and Stanley friends for life year 2 https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2017/1/the-beagle-and-the-boy-jasper-and-stanley-friends-for-life-year-2 So here we are again. Another year down and Stan is now 2 and Jasper is clocking in at the grand old age of 7 later on this year. 

It's been a busy year for us as a family. We moved home, got married, I won Army Photographer of the year  Amy set up a business (A baby sensory and story telling class in Bristol)- Story Stars and Stan went 'viral' with this story- Stanley takes some pictures with a Canon g12

Between all this we have kept up the 'Beagle and the Boy' project. Every month we take the photo. As you can see the location of the chair changed a few times and we even lost the chair for a month when my Nan reupholstered it for us. 

 

Here are the images from 2016. 

 

Enjoy!

This year has been pretty busy to be honest. I've travelled to a few countries, seen some amazing things, met some great people, won professional photographer of the year and experienced some pretty groovy stuff!

Some of these pictures have never been seen before. Some you will have already seen from previous blogs.

Same as last year its pretty picture heavy, just keep scrolling.

This job was down in London for the Operation GRANBY memorial service in the guards chapel. 

OP GRANBY memorialOP GRANBY memorialMembers of the Royal Family have joined Armed Forces personnel in London today to pay tribute to the thousands of Servicemen and women who took part in the First Gulf War on the 25th anniversary of the conflict.


On 17 January 1991, the United Nations launched the largest coalition of forces since the Second World War in response to the invasion of Kuwait.


The British contribution to these efforts – codenamed Operation GRANBY – involved the deployment of 53,000 UK Armed Forces personnel from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force. A ceasefire was agreed just over a month later, on 28 February 1991.

I travelled all the way up to Carlise castle to set up a few photos that Army Phots had taken late last year for the response to the flooding up north. 

42X Community Covenent signing42X Community Covenent signingSOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS TO BUILD ON FLOOD EXPERIENCE


Army personnel and those from other organisations which worked on December’s flood response in Cumbria have met up again in Carlisle.


The evening reception was held on Thursday (March 3) and saw around 100 people from the military, the emergency services and local authorities in attendance.


Soldiers and civilians at the Carlisle Castle event hope to strengthen the strong bonds they formed during their four weeks together supporting communities affected by Storms Desmond, Eva and Frank.


For that reason the evening also had another function: from spring the Army Reserve intends to improve the range of roles it can offer potential recruits who live in the north of Cumbria, and Thursday’s event was an opportunity to talk about the plans.


Till now, those in and around Carlisle who wished to join the Army Reserve were restricted to roles in an Infantry unit or a field hospital – both based at Carlisle Army Reserve Centre. That is expected to change within months when artillery, engineering, logistics and military intelligence roles will be among those to be offered at the same location.


Thursday’s event also saw the signing of two Armed Forces Covenants; one by the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce, and another by Sellafield Ltd.

This job is always fun. It's a regular task up in the Midlands, the final training before soldiers deploy on Operation TOSCA to Cyprus.  OP TOSCA MRXOP TOSCA MRXPhotographer: Cpl Timothy Jones RLC Crown Copyright 2016 This shot was put into my winning portfolio for this years phot comp.

I was off to Tidworth to cover the boxing for 1 RRF against 13 RLC. It was my first time covering boxing it was pretty hard but cracked how to do it in the end.

 

 

Another boxing night, this time at Bramcote Barracks for the Royal Signals champs. They had much better light at this boxing event!

This job was an odd one. I had was tasked to follow a US General round for a couple of days while he did visit to the UK.  General Robert B ABRAMS, Commanding General U.S. Army Forces Command (CG FORSCOM)
arrived in the UK yesterday with his wife Connie to meet CGS General Carter and deliver the
Kermet Roosevelt Lecture to over 800 senior army officers. After a tour of Salisbury Cathedral and
Stonehenge, the General, who was commissioned in 1982, will travel to Tidworth to kick off his lecture entitled
'Surge-Ready... Rotationally Focused'.

During the weeks tour, General Abrams will deliver a talk to the Defence Academy Shrivenham and the Army Foundation
College in Harrogate. He will be hosted at the House of Commons by Black Rod and also visit Highclere Castle, the location for the
popular period drama, Downton Abbey.

THE PRINCE OF WALES & DUCHESS OF CORNWALL ATTEND SERVICE AND TEA PARTY IN SUPPORT OF THE VICTORIA CROSS & GEORGE CROSS ASSOCIATION   
 
Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall attended a service of remembrance and re-dedication at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, honouring Victoria Cross and George Cross recipients.

Shropshire's Civic Church – St. Chad’s Church in Shrewsbury is the first church in the UK to sign the Armed Forces Covenant. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York signed the Covenant in 2015 of behalf of the entire Church of England, but St Chad’s is the first individual church to follow their lead.

First job on Salisbury plain in a while. Went off with one of the new Phots Ben to do some stuff with the HCR. 

ARMY-HQ-2016-171-042ARMY-HQ-2016-171-042Soldiers from C Sqn Household Cavalry Regiment deployed to Salisbury Plain last week on EX IRON SCOUT 3. The Household Cavalry Regiment is an Armoured Cavalry regiment equipped with CVR(T) recognisance vehicles (soon to receive the new AJAX vehicle) that allow the Regiment to project forward large distances and provide the forward recognisance for 1 (Armoured) Brigade. Currently held at high readiness to deploy anywhere in the world, the Squadron used this demanding exercise to continue their work towards mounted excellence, refining their manoeuvres at night and seizing opportunities that the weather presented to close undetected towards the enemy. They worked alongside 4/73 (Sphinx) Special Observation Post Battery and 216 (Parachute) Signals Squadron to provide by day or by night, and in any weather, unblinking surveillance.

The hardest conditions I have ever taken photos in https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2016/12/the-hardest-conditions-i-have-ever-taken-photos-in Without a doubt, working in Norway was the hardest conditions I have ever taken photos in -  4 hours of 'sunlight' a day, -10 in the daytime and -22 at night!

We were off again as the Combat Camera Team to cover EX ICE READY an exercise to prepare Five British women to become the first all-female team to ski coast-to-coast across Antarctica in November 2017. 

We set off from Andover to Heathrow at 3AM to catch 3 flights into deepest darkest Norway; literally. We had 4 hours of 'dusk' each day we were out there. I didn't see The Sun once...

 

The sun rising at Heathrow as we took off, this was the last time I saw this, until I got back to the UK 4 days later. 

 

 

Our first stop was Oslo, the capital of Norway, then on to Tromsø and then one final flight to Lakselv where we would pick up our hire car (a lovely Suzuki Vitara). There we drove onto Porsangermoen, our home for the next few days. We made a stop off at the local Co-Op and grabbed some supplies for the week.

We were staying in a nice little chalet just outside of the Military training area that the girls were working in. When I say 'chalet' it wasn't like your Center Parks style. It was not quite Butlins, but not as bad as a Pontins! It was a place to edit, eat, sleep, wash and charge our batteries. That's pretty much all we need as a camera team. Well that and a set of wheels, but we had already picked that bad boy up!

This was the view from out the back of our window.

 

We were up early the first morning, so we could get up into the training area to capture what was going on - in good conditions it would have taken 45 minutes. The Suzuki Vitara was supposed to be a 4x4, but we got stuck in the snow. The digger that cleared the roads had not been out before we left and the snow was bad. The first hill we came to we go stuck (I wasn't driving). Luckily, a BV was bringing someone in off the area, they chained us up and pulled us out of the verge. We were on our way again, until 5 metres up the hill we lost control and ended up in a ditch. This time the digger that cleared the roads had made it to us and actually dug the car out of the snow. We had discovered that the 4x4 was not that good in snow, so we switched all electronic ESP and other gadgets off and managed to trundle up onto the training area.

 

The BV pulling us out.

 

So we got to the training area and began to work. Fuck me it was cold! I was wearing layers and layers of clothing and I still felt it! As I have said before, we did not have much light to work with, so I knew I was going to be using some high ISO's. I started snapping away and covered them practicing crevasse rescue drills and moving across the training area.

I didn't notice until after reviewing this photo, that there was a old tank in the background.

 

We finished that day as the light dropped below what our cameras could cope with, and before the snow really set in and we got stuck for the night. I drove us back down from the area and to say it was a ropey drive would be an understatement. The snow was as deep as the bonnet at some points. I don't think I got out of second gear the whole time. We made it back and realised that it was 3 in the afternoon and it was pitch black outside! 

The next day, we waited until it was light and we could get up to the training area. We didnt get up until later that day, as it was snowing hard and the car would not have made it. We waited until the snow had stopped, and the digger cleared the roads and made our way up. By the time we got up there it was already getting dark. We got to the area where the girls were stopping for the night and waited for them to arrive.

Once the girls arrived, they went straight into their routine to set up camp for the night. The only light we had at this point was the torchlight from them and myself.

The steam filling up the tent. This made taking pictures hard as it would often fog up the lens. I combated this by putting the lens in the snow to cool down and wipe it off after.

Foot admin was key in the conditions that they were working in.

 

As we were packing all the gear away, I noticed that there was a massive break in the clouds and you could see the stars. On the off chance of getting some nice star shots, I whacked the camera on a tripod set the shutter speed to 25 seconds and waited to see what came out on the back of the camera.Checking it out there was a green smudge across the screen. I instantly knew it was the Northern lights. I told Gaz and we started unpacking all our kit again. 

We both set our cameras up to capture a timelapse but using the interval mode in camera so we could tweak the images before making them into a timelapse afterwards. We then sat in the car with the heater on for a few hours and waited...

This was the exact shot I had in mind that I wanted to capture before I went out there. You can just about see The Northern Lights. The three shooting stars were just a bonus!

 

Happy with what I got we headed home. As it was an early start in the morning so we went straight to bed.

Up and ready for the last day of shooting we met the girls where we left them the night before. This day was by far the coldest, it was -14 when we got up there and it got colder by the hour. It was so cold my jacket was starting to freeze and I could only work for about 20 mins before I had to put on a set of mittens over my thermal gloves for my hands to warm up. I worked my way round what was going on and captured their morning routine doing both video and stills.

The views were pretty spectacular.

 

As the girls set off we spent the next couple of hours of daylight running alongside and ahead of them to capture them travelling back to camp. I shot the stills and Gaz did an interview on the move. It was hard work running up and down the line as I had to get ahead of them enough to get shots on the long lens and then wait for them to come past me to get shots on the wide. I struggled with reviewing the images on the back of the camera as well due to every time I breathed on it the condensation froze!

Gaz after filming, his eyelashes and hair had frozen.  

 

After shooting for the day it was back to the chalet to download our images and footage and start the edit. The girls had to hand back in their kit and sort themselves out after being in the snow for 9 days. That evening a big meal was cooked for everyone and we had a few beers with everyone. Before I went to bet I thought I would check out the sky to see what it looked like. This time you could see the Northern Lights with the naked eye. It was hard to frame it up as I couldnt see anything through the viewfinder so it was focus to infinity, set shutter speed to 25 seconds, f 5.6 and ISO 3200 and hope for the best. After a few shots I got the framing right and took a few snaps. After I was happy I set the camera to timelapse mode, set an alarm for a few hours and went to bed.

 

This is what the camera looked like at 1230AM and at -25.

Camera set up in the middle of the night near the lake.

The front of the lens. Happy to say that none of the ice came up on the exposures and the camera still works just as fine!

 

This was out the back of our chalet. I would have been gutted if I did not come back with a picture of the Northern Lights. 

 

And that was that! 3 flights home and back in Andover for 1130PM on the Sunday. A great trip, did some great stuff and got to meet some inspiring girls. I wish them all the best on the rest of their adventures and I hope to work with them again soon! Big up yourselves ladies!

 

To keep up to date with the Ice Maidens exped keep an eye out on their site and follow them on Twitter.

 

Here is the finished video that Gaz filmed and shot. With one shot in their from me and the last bit of music made by me using garage band.

Kabul through my eyes https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2016/11/kabul-through-my-eyes I spent 6 months in 2011 in Kabul, Afghanistan before being selected to transfer to be a British Army Photographer. 

Here is a video I whacked together at the time.

There are hardly any pictures of the guys I worked with it mainly focuses on the people of Kabul. 

Sorry its not hi-res as I did it a fair few years ago now on IMovie.

 

A lot of the images from this video are here in this album- Afghanistan

 

I will do another post soon explaining a few of the stories and what I got up to over there. 

For now check out this link, I pretty much documented my time there on the Bristol music blog Hijack

Looking up at Wesontbirt Arboretum https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2016/11/looking-up-at-wesontbirt-arboretum So I went to Westonbirt Arboretum a few days back. We only spent a few hours there due to Stan stacking in after two hours of running around in the leaves. To be honest he did well to go for that long. I took the camera along with me and grabbed a few shots of him running around and what we saw there.

I have been a few times before and wanted to get something different to the usual 'autumnal' shots you see at Westonbirt. I decided to 'look up' and get a different perspective. 

Take a look;

So I won something in this years British Army Photographic competition 2016 https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2016/10/so-i-won-something-in-the-british-army-photographic-competition-2016 So I entered few categories in this years British Army Photographic comp.

I only went and won the best portfolio category with this lot! This was my second of the two portfolios that I entered. 

The portfolio was split into individual categories-

Bristol Fog pictures fail! https://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/blog/2016/10/bristol-fog-pictures-fail A fair few years ago I took these photos-

Well this morning I noticed it was foggy in Hanham and thought it may be worth a shot at getting some more pictures of Avon Gorge in the fog. 

Me and Stan jumped in the car at half six in the morning and he fell asleep within 2 mins! The traffic was a bit of a mare going through Bristol as it always is but we managed to get up to Clifton before the sun rose. We waited a bit for it to get lighter and realised it was way too foggy to capture anything!

Stan had his Canon G12 with him and snapped away with me.

This is a usual gig for me and I always enjoy covering it. The place always looks amazing as the crew put so much effort into the venue. It usually takes them a week to set it all up.  

I had a bit of trouble as soon as I got in there due to humidity on the front of the lens. I usually keep the camera bag in the footwell of the car to warm it up before hand but forgot this time! It just meant that I had to wait a bit before shooting. 

All these were shot on the Nikon D5 with a 14-24mm lens and SB700 flash. With this lens I can get up close and personal with everyone and get some great shots. 

Check out the colours, people and atmosphere in this little teaser of what I got up to.
