To mark International Women’s Day, I was sent up to Edinburgh a few weeks back to photograph Sarah Brown. She was speaking to Director magazine about her new campaign for gender equality, women in leadership and politics. Here are a few images from the shoot.
A recent portrait of Olympic and World Championship swimmer Mark Foster. We showered Mark with water and used high speed flash to freeze the water droplets as they bounced off his body.
This was shot at White Rabbit Studios in Shoreditch for the cover of Sport, for a retrospective feature on Peter Crouch’s career, in anticipation of him scoring his 100th Premier League goal. Peter had a few days off, so we managed to get a very easy-going full hour with him for this cover and main feature spread.
In light of the release of the animated adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ book, Ethel & Ernest, Waitrose Weekend interviewed Jim Broadbent, who voiced the part of Briggs’ father, Ernest. This image was taken in London.
Shot for the ongoing project Sport Uncovered, but this time we went on location and photographed Louis at his training gym in Northampton. We practised a few moves beforehand to make sure we got the right body positioning and used a harsh clip light to define his silhouette. Louis is back from a two-month suspension by British Gymnastics.
These images were taken for a feature on Northern Irish boxer Carl Frampton, shot on location at his gym in West London (where he trains with Shane McGuigan, son of boxing legend Barry McGuigan). Carl was training in a sparring session, so we couldn’t use any flash. After he’d finished we had 10 minutes to take some portraits.
Shot for the Army, in conjunction with Forever Sports, as part of a feature highlighting the importance of teamwork within Army jobs. The shoot took place at the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich.
