was delighted to be invited in to the home of Paul Gambaccini and Christopher Sherwood on a sunny Wednesday morning in May. The task at hand being to shoot some portrait shots for PR use, and also cover a 'day in the life' style shoot for an editorial piece. Spending the day with them and capturing their love for music, comic art, film posters, fitness and reading was a great insight into their passions.

I was asked by Saracens Rugby Club to head to the first training session of the season at Allianz Park to capture a selection of shots. I was asked to shoot a series of portraits for use on the match day cover programme covers for the forthcoming season. The second part of the brief was to capture shots for use throughout their marketing arm, website, B2B communication and various forms of consumer facing promotions.
