North by Northwest

I’ve known Richard Vergette since I was a wayward student in the early 80’s gate crashing the Inter Arts course at Bretton Hall whilst studying Art History in Leicester. He is a thoroughly good sport and a gentleman to boot. As head of the students Union at Bretton he organised some of my first paid gigs.
Richard writs plays now and teaches we met at Queens Gardens to make this image.

Beauty and the Beast

Hayley Thorpe contacted me about recreating a scene from Beauty and the Beast at the Brynmor Jones Library at Hull University. We made this image on the top floor. Belle has been Hayley’s hero since she was a child. The combination of book reading and singing was irresistible to her younger self. As a mother she dreams of being able to sit down and read all day uninterrupted.

The Sound of Music

Sam Hawcroft contacted me about recreating a scene from The Sound of Music. We met at Pearson Park me with a step ladder and Sam in her Sound of Music outfit. Sam’s Nan is from Austria and by a weird quirk of fate Sam is editor of H & E magazine (it’s a long story) so we had plenty to talk about on the way up to location. I got up the ladder to get the angle right and Sam channelled her inner Maria and we made this image.
