I met Tom and Nicola to photograph them for a You magazine feature.  Their lives were turned upside down 17 years ago when Tom contracted sepsis and had to have all of his limbs amputated in order to survive.  I arrived a little early, knocked on the door and I have to admit I was surprised that it was Tom who walked up and opened the door and showed me into the kitchen.  There’s nothing better than having your expectations challenged.  The article co-incided with the launch of the film ‘Starfish’ which tells their amazing and moving story. Sepsis symptoms.  Starfish trailer.  (more…)

Hello and welcome to my May newsletter where we jump back to early last year. We start with the gorgeous Brooke Vincent, long time Coronation street actress, photographed in Manchester for S Magazine’s ‘In the closet’. We had a great team led by Tricia Bland, make up by Nealey Leah and I was assisted by Karolina. Brooke was great to work with and I really like the ‘white portraits’.

March Newsletter

Marching back

 

Hello all, welcome to my March newsletter which jumps back to early last year and starts with a lovely mother and baby story for the Sunday Express Magazine.  Emma Parker Bowles talks about her journey to becoming a mother to beautiful Olive.  Tally Bookbinder (make up) and I had a gorgeous day out in Yorkshire and got lots of cuddles from Olive and from Emma’s four dogs.

Now jumping back to September and October I was really pleased to be asked to shoot for ‘The Official Ferrari Magazine’. It’s a beautiful annual magazine produced by Conde Nast, celebrating a year in the life of all things Ferrari. My contribution was to photograph Craig Walton, the service manager at JCT600 in Leeds who is particularly good at his job. Fingers crossed next year they’ll send me to Italy! (more…)

Spring newsletter

Hello Spring

 

Last Saturday was spent photographing Mr Bloom in the morning and a naturist campsite in the afternoon!  And that is why I never get bored of my job…
Luckily for the nudists Spring has arrived and warmed the weather a little so nothing turned blue or dropped off.

Front Cover of Saturday Express magazine

Editorial Portrait of Emmerdale actress Gaynor Faye

It’s only once in a while that I get a cover of a magazine so I’m always thrilled when it happens!  It took place in Double Tree Hotel in Leeds with make up artist Andrea Perry Bevan.  Gaynor was lovely to work with, very easy going and willing to try anything – even jumping up and down on a buffet while wearing heels!

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!  (more…)
