Our guests are like family to us so when we see them doing really cool and exciting things, we feel it necessary to share with the world. Oscar Ferguson has been coming to Peligoni since he was 17, and in the four years since, he’s blossomed into a talented photographer and filmmaker. Oscar kindly gave us a glimpse of his recent family holiday to Peligoni and spoke to us about why his family love the club and his journey behind the lens…
WHY DID YOUR FAMILY COME TO PELIGONI AND WHAT KEPT YOU COMING BACK?
There is something for all of us at the club which we haven’t found anywhere else. There are six of us and some want to just relax all week and some want to sail every time the wind is up, and having all that in the same place is perfect.
DESCRIBE A PERFECT DAY AT THE CLUB
WHAT’S THE SECRET TO A SUCCESSFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY
HOW DID YOU START GETTING INTO FILM/PHOTOGRAPHY?
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
DO YOU THINK SOCIAL MEDIA HAS HAD AN EFFECT ON THE WAY FAMILIES INTERACT?
YOU’VE FOUND YOUR PASSION IN LIFE – WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ADVICE TO OUR YOUNGER GUESTS WHO ARE SEEKING THEIR OWN?
Find what you love and then keep doing it. And if you don’t know what that is yet keep doing things you like and think are fun and then make a job out of it. There is no one path to do what you want, the best path is the one you make for yourself. If you can manage to do what you are passionate you will never work a day in your life!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR COMPANY
I started the company about 6 months with Joel Barney after we met working in a coffee shop together and talking about films for our whole shift. A couple of weeks later we produced our first short which has been nominated for the Hampshire prize at the Winchester Short Film Festival and since then things have gone really well! We are currently in pre production of our third short and two music videos and still have loads planned for the future!
