Just happen to read an interview about Terry O'Neill on the Treats Magazine website (I go there for the interviews honestly......) I like Terry's work, some fab images he has made that have stood the test of time, may he sell loads of prints! One part of the interview stood out, after which I could only
Here is a shot of Chrissy from Nevs models, from way way back, 2006 if I am not mistaken, at The Cadogan Hotel in Chelsea. A rather petite hotel where it was not very easy to do a shoot in. This was for a magazine in the Middle-East, the name escaped me. Styling by Rebekah
Today I happen to receive the 31st AOP Photography Awards 2014 book, each year all members are invited to submit their best work for it to be considered and get honoured for what they have done. Back in the day there were Gold/Silver/Bronze Awards, now you get Best In Category as an accolade. In the
Shot near Morden. Published for Archant Magazines a few years back, got the cover too. Also added some outtakes. I remember we had to hide under the trees as we got caught out by a heavy shower. Styling: Jackie Beeke. Hair and make-up: Charlotte Fisher. Model: Kate Alexis.
This week I went to the Guy Bourdin exhibition at Somerset House, it started on Nov 25th and runs for a few months. It was held in a section at Somerset House I had not seen an exhibition before, not that I am a frequent visitor, I average 2 a year. I am a big admirer
The band is back in the EU and since I missed out on their massive Summer tour I wanted to hang out for a week and shoot some. They arrive late on a Sunday and therefore are forced to cancel their show in Manchester so their first show is at The Shacklewell Arms in London, a
This is a polaroid transfer of AnneMarie Prince and was taken in 1993 in Den-Bosch. I cross processed the negative as a slide film (that is c41 film developed as e6) and that gave it this large green tint. I shortly after found out which film to use and what filtering to counteract that. I
Taken a while back at The Farnborough Air Show and stacked on top of each other, just playin' I am going on tour with Lord Wilson next week, so expect a load of Die! Die! Die! antics shortly. Also dropped my scanner off again at Nikon for a bi-annual clean-up / repair and I
Short near Liverpool St station in 1996.
Here are outtakes from a shoot I did at what is now called The Rosewood Hotel in Holborn. Model: Gerda Marie Mare Styling: Cora Chung Make-up: Shelly Manser-Cavanaugh Hair: Claudio Contrasti
Been away for a week to Syracuse in Sicily, solid 28 degrees the first 5 days and only a degree or two lower in the latter part of last week. Experienced a lot of blanket lightning, hours of it, spectacular to say the least. On our way to Syracusa, we passed though Chiaramonte Gulfi and Palazzolo Acreide,
It has been a few months since I have been posting here, and besides using my iPhone on Instagram it doesn't amount to much. In the mean time, time allowing, some changes to a new website and photographs will be done as well and especially the metal stuff, I have made a load of scans
First to arrive Poppy J., amazing model, strong features and great personality. Next was Sienna S. from Derbyshire. Fabulous hair and looks. And finally Nancy. Her first shoot and she did very well. All at Profile Models.
Last Sunday I went back into the studio again, it had been just over 8 months. Managed to photograph three young girls from Profile Models. First one who popped round was Charlotte W., with her mom Sue. I must admit I felt a bit rusty at first but once I had things set up it
Shot in 2011 for Spindle Magazine.
Watched a few more: Best Man Down, a nice little movie, nothing too complicated part serious part funny. Woody Allen's latest film Blue Jasmine is very good, so good that I did not even see it as a typical W.A. flick. Kate Blanchett does a very solid job in this one, would have liked to see Alec
The missus and I decided to go to Malta for a quick break, as it was her birthday and we wanted to go somewhere warmer than the U.K. just to break that wintry and above all wet U.K. spell.We got ourselves based in Mellieha which is the north of the island, where it was relatively
While being on a quick break I had some time to catch up on a few movies, the new Scorcese film The Wolf Of Wall St which I loved, the pace, editing and above all the cinematography, it is just a feast for the eyes. Laughed out loud a few times and felt it really reminded
Since dropping my Facebook account I have replaced it with reading a load of books, I suggest you all do the same :-) I realised that whenever I had a spare moment I ended up grabbing my iPhone and browse through the timeline and concluded that the large majority of my so called 'friends' had
This is why film blows digital, anytime! Kodak EN film from 1986 shot in 2004, I cross processed it and the images of Frangocastello in Crete are lovely. I shot digital alongside this, and how stale and polished it looks and how much post production it would need to match these and I regret not
After I left military service (444 IBC) in August 1988 I stayed at my parents' house for a few months where I managed to get on their nerves and was more or less told to get my act together (read: get a job and move out :) ) so I started to become an apprentice
Since I have been spending some time scanning some of my archive in I came across these two shots of Blackfoot, Rickey Medlocke, Charlie Hargrett, Jackson Spires and Greg T. Walker who opened up for Iron Maiden and Scorpions. Funny thing is that these two shots are actually the first two shots I ever took
The last few days I have had my scanner on and threw a few negs in and low and behold we have a few shots to show :) Obviously these are the rejects / outtakes, call it what you want it, and the good stuff stays 'secret' until the book will be published, but at
Last week went to Holland to see my mom and hang around for a few days, I was looking forward to it as I felt the need for a break from London. Besides chatting and hanging about I got up one morning early to see if I could shoot some interesting shots of the sunrise
So I finally decided to start scanning my metal archive (I think Gerd-Jan Vleugels' passing made me get my finger out I suppose), the large majority being from 1982-1987. Quite an undertaking, I am looking at having to scan in about 1,500-2,000 images from which I will have to edit it down to about 10/20%
It's that time of the year again, Die! Die! Die! are playing Europe this summer and of course a soiree in the U.K. was included. I joined them last week at their Brighton and London dates, this is their third trip to the EU now in about 9 months time and this tour is quite
Gert Jan Vleugels It has come to my attention that Gerd-Jan Vleugels has passed away at the age of 44 due to thyroid cancer on Aug. 2nd. I am shocked that he is not around anymore, aged 44 years is way too soon to depart from this planet. I first met him in
Here are some flowers I have just scanned in from cross processed Ektachrome film (EPY to be exact), the pix were taken by me last year in the Spring and Summer, it took me more than 6 months to have this processed and another 6 to get them scanned in, how's that for sticking to
Tanya Auclair, the first time I saw her play was as support for Stateless at the Jazz Cafe. Thought she'd make good copy for Ponytail Magazine as I really liked what she did musically. The piece never got pubbed because the mag went belly up. Some portraits shot during and after the interview.
Here are some shots I did for the Toni & Guy look book, supposedly coming out in Sept. Chanie Louise, Laura Andrea Kell, Lena Marie & Max, all at Profile Models. Since quitting Facebook I have started to read books more, I seem to have an appetite for the RFK and JFK assassinations, out of
