National Training Academy

Young british athletics talent. Photographed at the National Training Academy outside of Birmingham.  We spend the afternoon with the athletes capturing them in training across a range of disciplines. Using a heavy amount of flash to overcome the messy and flat gym interior. We also shot ‘body parts’ for the client to convey the peak physical condition of these elite athletes.

Le Comptoir Général

I was recently commissioned to travel to France to shoot this quirky feature on Le Comptoir Général in Paris. The LCG, as it is known, is run like a department store, with concessions operated by an eclectic bunch of traders. Most of the staff have links with Africa, cross-continental characters who effortlessly mix what they term ‘ghetto cool’ from homelands like Morocco or Togo with Parisian flair to create the kind of edgy street style spotted in New York or London but rarely seen in France’s highly polished capital. Here a a few of the characters I met.

Derren Brown

Good to see an image of mine gracing the cover of “My VIP” magazine. This image was shot at Derren’s central london home and features his pet parrot Rasputin, a Blue Quaker.

The Rise of Harry Kane

Images of the most talked about British footballer of the season. Used by a number of publication (including here Sport Magazine). We devised a very simple, almost classical, lighting style and pose to mirror Harry’s very traditional on field playing style.
