I had the privilege of meeting and photographing Tony twice. He was a maverick a true believer in the cause and above all else a proper gentleman. RIP Tony.

Julie Graham, actor

Star of countless television shows and British films, Scottish actress Julie Graham can currently be seen in dark BBC thriller ‘Shetland’. 

We met up a couple of weeks ago for a shoot around Lincoln’s Inn Fields. 

It was my great pleasure to be part of the judging panel for The Signature Art Prize 2014.

Our exciting final judging took place yesterday evening ahead of a Gala Evening at Old Spitalfields Market.

The task of choosing a ‘top three’ in each category, from some outstanding work was daunting but I’m happy to say that three out of four winners appeared in my top list.

And the winners were………

Alice Kelway-Barber for sculpture, Kevin Dowd for Photography, Claire Anscomb for Drawing and Printmaking and Gwenyth Fulgard for Painting!
Congratulations all!

 

I guess you could call Vicky Pryce controversial.  I found her to be warm and charming, a little nervous but with a  really humorous spark.
The portraits were shot at the Southbank Centre ahead of Vicky’s talk at the Women of the World Festival this week.
