Is inspired by the great Cinematographers of the Hollywood movies of the 1930’s and 40’s, when stars were lit to look like stars.
Combined with a love of the humanist photographers of the 50’s and 60’s such as Bert Hardy, Doisneau, Brassai, Bresson and Riboud.
Lighting is at the heart of everything that I do and from my time working as stills photographer on music videos and watching cinematographers paint with light to transform attractive looking artists into looking like stars…
I’ve learnt a lot about the tricks of lighting and making people look great!
Actors, models and and musicians that I have worked with include Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Natalie Imbruglia, Jerry Hall, Will Young, Lulu, Rashida Jones, Dave Stewart, Poppy Delevingne, Richard E.Grant, Jack Fox and the extraordinary Dame Joan Collins.
