Photographing Peter Kay

Front cover

I’m really excited this week to see my portrait of comedian Peter Kay appearing on the front cover of ‘TV & Satellite’ magazine and another on an inside spread of the TV Times.  It’s all in aid of promoting his new show starting on Wednesday called ‘Car share’ on BBC1. I’m a big Peter Kay fan so I’ll definitely be watching.  I have to admit it’s a little while since I actually did this editorial shoot with Peter but I remember what a bizzare but fun shoot it was.  I arrived at a hotel somewhere near Lincoln, with the journalist, to meet Peter and his agent but after waiting around for ages with no sign of them we started to worry.  Eventually I got reception to phone his room – only to discover he was still asleep!  Half an hour later he was downstairs looking freshly showered (still dripping) and apologising.  Then the interview.  Peter was so chatty I don’t think the journalist knew what hit him – or could get a word in!  It was the funniest interview I’ve ever had to sit through. Three hours after we arrived I finally got started with my photoshoot!
