Remember to look up at the stars…

This time last year I was lucky enough to photograph this gentleman .The occasion was the Radio Times Covers Party, an event to celebrate all the cover stars from that year. The main party was in the swanky surroundings of the main ballroom at Claridges. I was in a (very grand) side room where we had set up a colourama backdrop to turn it into a studio space .The idea being that we would take portraits of all the artists after they had received their awards.

Tears On The Dancefloor…

29 April 2017

It was indeed a bizarre moment when the band assembled in front of me for the first shot of the day .They had not been together for a photoshoot since 2001 and there was an abundance of nervous laughter as they all reconnected with their characters from yesteryear. Having shot STEPS on numerous occasions in the past it was a bit of a groundhog day moment for me too.

I’m very chuffed to have been interviewed by Harry Hitchens and Matt Shore for their brilliant Filler Podcast series. Journalistically wedged somewhere between “This Is Your Life” and “How to survive in cameraland in 2015”, we traded stories, photographic anecdotes and industry tips. During the interview we trawled through my time fronting a band ,falling into a career with a camera, right through to some recent photographic commissions.

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 “.

Farewell to the Doctor….

This is the BBC poster that came out of the final shoot that Matt Smith did as the Dr. Visually he is a treat to photograph….his face has more angles than a protractor. As he was staring into my lens i thought he really did look part human and part something else.

Monsters

Thanks to the great man Mr Addison Cresswell ,who many moons ago entrusted me to photograph his star pupil Lee Evans .Up to that point i had only worked with musicians, and it opened up the world of comedy, a whole new photographic landscape for me. I have continued to capture the endless contortions of Lee over the years. Be that in a harness, on a trampoline, or even submerged in a deep filmset swimming pool. This is the latest creation by Myself and Lee, with artworking by Lewis at Tangerine. Its currently on billboards and escalators all over this fair city advertising his new tour called “Monsters”
