A recent commission from Waitrose Food Magazine, saw me spending the day with the team at Keen’s Cheddar in Somerset. for the ‘meet the producer’ feature.
My portrait of William Chase owner and founder of Chase Vodka in Herefordshire. Photographed at the distillery on the grounds of William's Potato Farm.
This commission was a wonderfully interesting shoot - photographing behind the scenes at the Aston Martin production line in Warwickshire. I've seen a lot of factory floors in my photography career, but this site is particularly impressive. The Aston Martin production line stuck out for a number of reasons. Most notably, daylight balanced lighting on a factory floor... Every photographers dream.
Part of the shoot involved portraits with current CEO Andy Palmer. The tunnel (below) designed presumably to spot blemishes in paintwork made for an interesting backdrop.
I spent an afternoon last week shooting portraits with Neil Chadwick, co-founder of the Cornish clothing company Seasalt last week. It was a beautiful day to be on the South West coast, the shoot took place at the flagship store in Falmouth. Neil's very cute dog Pepe the CockaPoo naturally featured heavily.
Whilst chatting to Neil he very casually mentioned that he'd once been photographed by the great Peruvian fashion photographer Mario Testino. Coincidentally this happened to me on a shoot the week before when I asked the subject whether they'd been photographed before, 'Oh a guy called Martin Parr took my portrait recently' came the reply. Nothing like knowing your photography idols have been here before to sharpen the focus.

My portraits of Sir Tim Smit the creator of the Eden Project in Cornwall. Both portraits were shot inside the Rainforest Biome. A truly fascinating place, complete with it's own insects crucial to the ecosystem, which include big bitey ants. Big bitey ants that Tim was keen to avoid whilst draped in the ferns above.
