I had an e mail from a Comsat Angel fan last year asking if I could buy a print of the photograph I took for the cover of the " Waiting for a Miracle" debut album cover. I remember shooting the image on a deserted motorway at night but as with many images from that era the record company never returned transparencies or they were lost in my files. Well while looking for other old and interesting...
In 2006 I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the Monaco historic Grand Prix. it was magical seeing the wonderful 1950's & 1960's GP cars racing on the streets of the Principality. I am hoping to attend this year.
A soon to be published story in Automobile magazine gave me time chance to spend time at Disneyland Paris with a group of French rock'n'rollers, who live the life of American muscle cars,jukebox's and live music. Naturaly being French the groups fashion style and grooming came out of the Hollywood stidio wardrobe!
Walking on Margate beach towards the Turner Contemporary art gallery I happened upon this vast metal sculpture looking like a work by an artist such as Sir Anthony Caro,a fitting work of art to front the new gallery in the seaside town. On closer inspection and who am I to judge it turn's out to be part of new sea defences!!
I had a great time photographing a JME Austin Healey 100S. Deceided to have a play with some of my post production software to reproduce a 1950's style snap shot!
Over the extended holiday in the UK I work on my photo image library. This image I shot in 1982 when I spent several days in london and Rome with Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music. It's always fun to dip into my archive!
At the end of a cycle ride I passed this Electric Hummer parked in Regents Park London. Is this the ultimate green Chelsea tractor or a new secret wepon used by special forces. This mini SUV must be fun to drive weaving through the London traffic free of the £8.00 congestion charge and no need to pump cash into parking meters!
