Iron Man

I park on the east side of Millennium Bridge in Hull. It’s a quid for 3 hours and a great location for a shoot. I’m here to meet Mark Storr. An ex-Morrisons Butcher made redundant and now pursuing a career as costumed character and purveyor of children’s entertainments.
He arrives with his wife and two young children and we have a look at the location. He loves it and gets changed. The costume is tricky to put on and Mark’s partner helps him with the finishing touches. We slowly head over from the car to the spot where we are making the image. In a few moments we have created this image.
If you are after an appearance by Iron Man or any of these characters Iron man, Thor, Captain America, Batman, Spider Man Mickey & Minnie, Peppa Pig, Spongebob, Pikachu. or a bouncy castle contact Mark at Party in a Box. He’s a top geezer!

Forest Gump


It’s before 9am early on saturday morning we’re at the Hull park run in East Hull the largest park run in the country. It’s just getting light. I’m in here to meet The Martindale family who have arranged to do a Forest Gump shoot with me.

Paul Martindale is in costume, he’s very tall and has a newly acquired Caveman wig and beard from Amazon. Sarah Martindale is wrangling Paul’s beard and putting the final touches to his Forest Gump character.

I shout to the group of runners warming up – ‘who wants to be in the picture’. Everyone gets in position, there are some hi vis jackets, we get them to the back of the group.

Some final adjustments to Paul’s caveman wig which has a life of it’s own and is having a diva moment, I get the final thumbs up from a relieved Sarah, shout to the runners to get ready and take this picture.
