Remembrance Sunday feature for The Independent on Saturday.

The feature ran last Saturday ahead of Remembrance Sunday. Seen on home page for the Independent. To see more of my work please click here, this shoot was booked through unp.

Horrible Histories at Stirling Castle.

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.

Actor Trevor Williams for The Independent.

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.
