Here are some sportrait images that I actually shot of Bill absolutely ages ago but have just finally edited and uploaded them to the SPORTRAITS gallery on the website…….
John is understood to have been driving to his brother’s house in Buffalo, New York on Tuesday when a driver jumped a red light and ploughed into his pick-up truck. The former U.S. Marine achieved worldwide notoriety in 1993 when his then wife Lorena used an eight inch carving knife to cut off his penis as punishment for what she said were repeated beatings. John is believed to have suffered a broken vertebrae and slipped disc in his back during the crash, his injuries are not thought to be life threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery.
Remembering all of those who gave service to their country and those missing in action.
It was a huge privilege to be invited to go up to the nearly completed Observatory floor at the top of One World Trade Center with writer Annette Witheridge. Having sadly covered the September 11 attacks and witnessing first hand the collapse of both of the twin towers, it was a strange feeling but a good one being at the top of the new tower. It’s an amazing piece of architecture and a fitting memorial to all of those, who lost their lives on that fateful day.
My nephew’s Charlie and Angus are over here visiting from the UK. They are both avid Tae Kwon Do enthusiasts and will soon be black belts. So I wanted to do a quick sportrait and some action shots of them to go with a photograph I took of them both a few years ago, back in Wales.
I was assigned to photograph actor Michael Sheen, OBE reading from the centenary edition of ‘The Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas’ edited by Swansea University’s Professor John Goodby at Bauman Rare Books on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York.
In the good old days, we used to store film in the fridge and apparently I still do. Cleaning out the fridge the other day I came across these old rolls of 35mm black and white film. I haven’t the heart to throw them out despite them being out of date and not shooting a roll of film since 2005……….
I just recently photographed my friend’s James and Trish’s baby in Central Park. Anna is only eight months old, loves to show off her new toothy pegs and was brilliant in front of the camera!!
I was recently assigned to photograph Tamara Mellon, OBE at her penthouse apartment on the Upper Eastside in Manhattan, New York. Her penthouse is up for sale, it could be yours for a cool $34,000,000 dollars! Tamara is the former Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Jimmy Choo, a luxury designer shoe brand. She stepped down from the company in November 2011 after its acquisition by Labelux. In 2013, Tamara announced the creation of TAMARA MELLON, a luxury fashion line offering a full range of clothing apparel, shoes and handbags. The brand launched in November 2013 with a select group of high-end retail partners in Europe and the USA.
