PETE BANKS LANDS AT KODE.
19 November 2020

London-based production company Kode have strengthened their roster with the addition of director and photographer Pete Banks.

Since hitting the circuit, Banks has shifted between moving and still-life images with ease. He eventually crossed paths with CEO Alex Harman, and it was only a matter of time before he joined Kode.


"Ive been chatting with Pete since the start of this year," Harman says. "We kept saying wed launch after this project and then another one would land on our laps! Weve been busy, but now feels like the perfect time to launch."


It feels amazing to be able to work with a company that feels more like a family - an incredibly hardworking, forward-thinking, slightly unhinged family.

 ”

Harman adds: "Pete is a truly decent lad hailing from Nottingham, and its handy living around the corner from him for a coffee during these lockdown 2.0 times. Were ready and excited for what 2021 will bring for us all."


As for Banks, he reckons Kode is the ideal place to grow as a filmmaker and indulge his football obsession: "It feels amazing to be able to work with a company that feels more like a family - an incredibly hardworking, forward-thinking, slightly unhinged family. I feel right at home."

To discuss Pete Banks in more detail, ring Kode's Alex Harman on 020 8133 5633 or email him via alex@kodemedia.com.
