Jurassic Park

Kerry Davies got in touch about his son  Joshua Davies recreating a scene from Jurassic Park at Dinostar in Hull. Situated near the C4DI building at the bottom end of Humber Street Dinostar is home to all things Jurassic in Hull. We cased the joint looking for a suitable point to stage the image. The Velociraptors never disappoint visually so we went for this image. Hats off to Joshua he’s only 14 but he’s pulled of a corker! Many thanks to Kerry for bringing the cakes and setting up the location for the shoot. You may recall Kerry was the star of The Westworld  shoot.

The Bodyguard

Tare Kagbala contacted me about recreating a Whitney Houston scene from The Bodyguard. She was lat for the first shoot and missed it. So we met up at the end of the day and got permission from the Mercure Hull Royal Hotel to use one of their function rooms where we quickly make this shot. Tare is a mother of 3 and her day job is working as Martin Green’s PA one busy lady.

Lady Sings the Blues

Ruth Toynton posted on facebook that she had been let down and needed a photographer. I was in town and offered to help out. Ruth is a singer and that is how we met. After a bit of gentle arm twisting Ruth agreed to do a Lady Sings the Blues shoot here’s the image. Interestingly when Ruth sings she makes beautiful photographs as well as music.

Star Wars

David Bush got in touch with me about recreating a scene from a film, he wasn’t sure which film so we had a video call and I said well you look  a lot like Alec Guiness  so we settled on Obi-Wan Kenobi. Dave who is a costume designer and all round useful geezer ran his own costume up. Please note only two Matalan dressing gowns were harmed in the creation of this stunning costume. We did the shoot at the back of macro on St. Andrews Quay next to the Humber.
