Paul Keating - some out-takes

Well, i shot British actor, Paul Keating a while back now but I have only just got around to taking a look at the out-takes.

This was shot at The London Palladium last year just before 'The Wizard of Oz' opened it's doors to the general public. Paul is currently playing the scarecrow in this West End production.





Behind the scenes in Wales

I had a dark moment recently on a shoot in Wales and became fascinated by a dead sheep....Thanks to my assistant, Gary Conway for capturing the moment......

Sheepdog Trial contestants....

Last week I was sent on a road trip around the country (well, Wales and Lancashire) to take a series of portraits of sheepdogs and their owners for Channel 4.
More 4 are documenting this year's Sheepdog trials, taking place in Cumbria in a couple of weeks.
Here are some of the budding contestants (and a rather perturbed lamb)......

Ian Brown and me at Chiswick Football Club - randomly!

Looking for some stuff on an old hard drive this afternoon and I came across this football club shoot with ex Stone Roses frontman, Ian Brown..... I totally forgot I had shot this.....according to my records it was September 2005.....I don't actually remember what this was for or how it came about....maybe it's because i'm not into football.....





OK, I just did a quick web search and it seems in September 2005, Ian Brown sponsored Chiswick amateur football club, hence the shirt which was emblazoned with, 'IB - The Greatest' (the name of Ian Brown's album release back then). Another interesting thing I found was that my photos from this shoot were all over the internet on various press websites......no credits of course, but quite amusing all the same!
