I’m going to start posting some pictures from my archives. Partly this is to keep the blog ticking over, but mostly its because I’ve realised that I have a tonne of images out there that I never really shared with the world, and I want to do so.

I loved this shoot with Massive Wagons. Not just because of the Last Supper group shot (which I’ll come back to another time; it’s an old favourite), nor because they’re a great bunch of guys (they are). I loved it because I experimented more than usual. The lighting scheme here was pretty much inspired by Rankin; My assistant Ben held the light – a Bowens monobloc with an umbrella reflector – no more than maybe a meter away from Adam, and moved it around as directed by me. And so we ended up at this shot, of which I’m quite fond.
