Screaming Lord Sutch, 1990


From the archives, something shot for Country Living in 1990. Not sure why Screaming Lord Sutch was presenting awards at a fitness event, but there you go! He was a nice chap. The Man v Horse Marathon at Llanwrtyd Wells. An annual event started in 1980, prize money is offered to a runner beating the fastest horse. Quite a feat, but has been achieved on a few occasions.

Rosebie Morton


From a shoot last summer, a lovely layout in the latest issue of SAGA Magazine, illustrating the work of rose grower, Rosebie Morton. Some out-takes too, as there is never enough room for all the shots taken for a feature.

Business is blooming


From a shoot on business women in You Magazine on 16th August 2015. On a large feature, several thousand shots often need editing down to half a dozen or so. This means overlooking many equally good images. So, a small selection of out-takes.  The first, a quick shot as I was packing my kit away.   Two more from the same series:

Buzz Aldrin, astronaut


From the archives….taken for Top Gear around 1998. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin with a Jaguar XJ220 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire. And a most fortuitously placed vapour trail.

Bruce Reynolds, Great Train Robber


One from the archives…..Bruce Reynolds,  the mastermind behind the Great Train Robbery. I came across this shoot this afternoon whilst sorting through a couple of old negative files. From 1997, I can’t remember the name of the magazine it was originally shot for. Bizarrely it went into liquidation before publication, and I had to retrieve all the film from a lock-up in North London…the only assets of the magazine I was entitled to claim back. HM Customs and Excise always have first pickings before the small folk. The story eventually appeared in The Telegraph, probably in 1998. Taken under bridge […]

Gibraltar – 21.8.13


Thanks to British Airways overbooking my homeward bound flight this summer, I had an extra day’s holiday in Gibraltar at their expense, which was jolly nice of them. This gave me the opportunity for a bit of sight-seeing and exploring. I have been once before, but here is a gallery of the latest images. (Click on thumbnails to bring up full size gallery).
