A few weeks back I headed over to the Manchester Velodrome with The Independent’s Ian Herbert to interview Olympic Gold Medalist Victoria Pendleton.
I recently covered a story for Historic Scotland which saw me photograph the medieval skeletons of five people found buried at Stirling Castle. I photographed Dr Jo Buckberry, biological anthropology lecturer and experimental officer at the at the University of Bradford. The test carried out by Dr Jo Buckberry suggested they suffered “brutally violent” deaths & probably died in sieges, skirmishes or battles during the Wars of Independence. The remains were found during renovations of the castle’s royal palace.
First job back after a couple of weeks off saw me photograph actor Trevor Williams for The Independent. As part of his role in Route Irish, a new film by Ken Loach, released today, Trevor Williams was ‘waterboarded’. This involved being strapped to a bench press, his feet elevated, hands tied and face covered with a rag while experiencing “simulated drowning” for a total of 80 seconds. Booked through UNP.
Decided to add some posts featuring some stories from my archive. Here is one from a few years back when I photographed the annual pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. All shot on Kodachrome, best film ever, sadly no longer available.
Not done many weddings in my life as a photographer, wish they were all like these though! Shot some stills for Channel 4’s Big Fat Gypsy Weddings series which starts tonight, selection seen here along with a couple from the first programme which aired last year. Pix have been widely used too!! Online tearsheets slao included. All rights reserved.
