My portrait of the actor Alan Cummin. Photographed last month in Cheltenham.
My portrait of comedian, writer and actor Sara Pascoe.
A couple of portraits photographed last month that I'm really pleased with. This is Jo Hill, an actor from Bristol. Her agent got in touch asking me to create a set of interesting still imagery for her casting portfolio.
I've arrived a little late to the party, but I'm very much enjoying the TV show 'Peaky Blinders at the moment. It's very pretty with a fantastic script and cast. Benjamin Zephaniah appears in the show as the brilliantly named street preacher Jeremiah Jesus. Seeing Benjamin reminded me to dig this portrait out I shot of him for the Times a while back.

A recent collaboration with the fantastic team at Secret Music. Actor Demetris Christopolous photographed on a set in a secret location in East London. I can say no more except make sure you catch the next one.
[cp_dropcaps]M[/cp_dropcaps]y portrait of the comedian David Walliams. Shot in 3 minutes dead on, I'm pleased with it. David Walliams first ever TV appearance was on Games World which I used to love as a kid. If you played computer games in or around the early nineties you'll probably remember the show. Presented by the enthusiastic Bob Mills, Bob's career path has been slightly different from Davids. From what I can make out (Wiki) he seems to have peaked at Games World. It's odd given the current popularity of computer games that there aren't any TV shows dedicated to them. I for one would like to see Bob back on the TV.
Stephen Mangan & Terry Pratchett
A couple of recent portraits I've taken which in terms of look and feel share a few similarities. Firstly actor and very funny man Stephen Mangan (above) who was a total dude and had everyone in stitches.
Mr Terry Pratchett, who broke the ice by joking with me that my flies were undone (they weren't, I quickly checked). This portrait of Terry is fast becoming one of my favourite pictures I've ever taken. Both portraits shot with very similar set-ups, 50mm, strong key - left and high, big close fil and sharp light fall off.
