David Bailey

David Bailey for the Sunday Times magazine 15th August 2011 He’d given an interview to Lynn Barber and it was agreed his Devon farmhouse near Dartmoor would make a good location. Initially I didn’t take any photographs because he was brusque and defensive. Over a coffee with his wife in the kitchen, we chatted about […]

John Humphrys for the Sunday Times

John Humphrys

John Humphrys is angry. As my assistant and I bump our heavy lights down the path of his West London home he berates us for being early. Red faced, he aserts that “I absolutely said not to turn up before two o’clock” and that he had “told the desk if they come early I’d tell […]

Assuring me they […]

Dermot Morgan 18th February 1998 Soho. It’s difficult to believe it’s been 17 years since Dermot Morgan the eponymous hero of Father Ted died.  I happened to photograph Dermot a few days days before his untimely death of a heart attack at 45.  I loved the program but my enthusiasm for meeting ‘Father Ted’ was […]

Shaun Murphy for the Observer Sport Monthly

Shaun Murphy

In 2001, I went to an ordinary house in the outer London suburbs with a very large extension. In this disproportionately large room was a snooker table and the well mannered, dignified teenager slotting balls elegantly into the pockets was Shaun Murphy. Congratulations tonight Shaun on trouncing world number one Neil Robertson 10-2 in the […]
