KFC ads

Yesterday was spent shooting some very sweet and funny ads for KFC with BBH London. I'm just in the middle of retouching them and then they go live on Wednesday.

Thanks to the creatives Madalien Scholten and Helena Delgado and art-buyer/producer Lauren Daniels for the great day.

Team Sky's Geraint Thomas

Known as a track cyclist [and certainly living up to that reputation with numerous Olympic and World gold medals to his name] earlier in his career Geraint has transformed himself into a brilliant road cyclist, much like Sir Bradley Wiggins before him. As a domestique for Team Sky he has been helping Chris Froome take a substantial lead in this year's Tour de France. We may even see him as the leader of a team in the near future and going for the overall victory himself.

This is a portrait of him I was commissioned to shoot a few years ago whilst he was still track racing. Shot in an impromptu studio in the corner of the National Cycling Centre, Manchester on my 5x4 field camera. Something Gearing was a little intrigued by - 

Sir John Hegarty

I had the privilege of photographing Sir John Hegarty yesterday for Think Quarterly. It was an absolute joy listening to him talk about the future of advertising and he had some pretty radical ideas for the next generation of creatives. The film has been processed so off to the darkroom to get some prints done as the deadline is very tight.
