My portrait of Cliff Jones the lead singer with the 90's band Gay Dad. Cliff has written an interesting article on money and the music industry from the band members perspective. The gilded Louis XV lit de mariage bed Cliff is sat on in the portrait above is one of his 'fortune eating' extravagant purchases featured in the piece. Very nice it is too.
An image from the Craghoppers advertorial photographed back in the summer. Phoebe Smith is a British adventurer and author who's written a book on her 'Extreme Sleeps'. She's set up camp and slept on the UK's highest mountain peaks and inside a WWII bomber wreckage. I struggle to sleep well in a Travelodge, that's my idea of an attempt at an extreme sleep.

Amy with her support dog Stanley the black Labrador. You are not allowed to play with Stanley when he has his working dog jacket on. He's pretty proud in his little blue jacket.
Guy and his very beautiful Collie dog Brave. This portrait was shot for the British Heart Foundation Magazine 'Heart Matters'. Guy was only 29 when he was diagnosed with a heart valve problem.
