Looking back over some old work, prying out extra photographs for the old book. London is feeling increasingly constricting. I could really do with another commission that gets me out of here. Two solid days in the studio next week for a big publication though which is… Well it’s pretty much the opposite. Maybe when I emerge it will be warm.
The above shots are from last year in Cape Town. I was shooting a lifestyle campaign for Nokia and we rented this classic merc and just cruised down the coast with the top down. I was leaning back out of the car trying to get everyone in at 24mm. I also rode in the support van with the boot open, Teddy holding onto my shoulder to stop me sliding out. It was so dam sunny which was a pain, I wanted softer light…
The car only had a tape deck but we found a load of old Louis Armstrong in the glove box. It was bliss.
