The Keepsakes Exhibition


It's been a privilege to have been part of a wonderful photographic project created by the Willow Foundation.
The charity, set up in 1999 by Bob and Megs Wilson in memory of their daughter Anna, provides seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds with special day experiences.

Nine  photographers were asked to take portraits of both beneficiaries of the charity and celebrities who lend their support.  My subjects were the lovely Alison, who has since sadly passed away, and a spirited young 'Girls Aloud' fan from Newcastle called Chris. I also shot comedy legend John Cleese and Hardeep Singh Kohli.

The project culminated in a great show at the SW1 Gallery and a book called Keepsakes. The show runs from 4 April-17th April 2009. Copies of the book can be purchased here.

Vertigo at Sunday Shoots


Last Sunday's offering was a sideways glance at that plunge pool we call the global economy. 'Falling with grace' is something a great many of us will have to get used to. Click here to see some fine examples of the art.
As you can see I had a go myself. Most liberating!

Bobbi Brown in the Booth


Boothnation's beauty lighting had it's ultimate test in Selfridges on March 13th and 14th. Bobbi Brown customers chose their favorite makeup look direct from the runways at Fashion Week. Following their personalised makeup lesson, the freshly made up beauties stepped into our 'Glitterbooth' and posed for four shots.

They then selected their favourite image which we printed up into  stunning 10"x 8" glossy prints. Customers were delighted with the results. From now on I'm only wearing Bobbi Brown.
