An audience with Sir Tom ….

This is a behind the scenes shot taken during my recent photoshoot for the BBC, photographing the series iconics for “The Voice 2015”.
During this full on, but fantastic day, there were only  4 people in front of my camera, but at any one time at least 30 people behind it, all making valuable contributions to the proceedings, like a big arty melting pot.
I had just asked Tom Jones to back up to the wall, throw his arms to his side and look menacingly into the camera.  He just smiled at me and replied “whatever you want me to do boy’o “.

Then as he stared at me through the little box i held in my hand ,one thought came suddenly came to my mind …..”Wow, you knew Elvis.”
