Some night shooting in Scotland and a portrait revisited

This is a little tenuous, but I heard a band on the radio this morning called ‘Jaguar Ma’ and it put me in mind of Arthur, who I photographed at a tattoo festival in Manchester a while ago. He and his partner have a tattoo studio in Blackpool called Jaguar Skin. The yellow is permanent.
Lady Marmalade, Burlesque Performer, Sin City, Koko, London
2am and having just finished her show, she was tired and a bit pissed off But, ever the performer, she posed for me as promised.
Jay Read, London Tattoo Convention
Ok, one more portrait that I made at the tattoo show in London. I know it seems perverse to show a black and white image of a tattooed man, but I was interested more in a portrait of the person in this instance. Jay has a look and aura about him that I wanted to try and capture.
Congratulations to John, who, last Sunday, was inducted into the National Sailing Hall of Fame. I was lucky enough to meet and photograph John in Portugal when the Americas Cup took place there. He has a reputation as a tough guy, and I think thats evident in this portrait, which by the way, I made in the cold storage room of a disused supermarket!
He has been in the news of late, so I thought I’d post this portrait I made of him a couple of years ago. My memory of him is of a very direct, no nonsense individual, who looked you straight in the eye.
Tim Anderson, Chef
I photographed Tim for the ‘Wonder’ issue of Ocado Magazine. Yes, he really is chowing down on one of those small and mean looking Thai chillies. What a guy!
One of my contributions to the Olympic Programme. Art Director Ben Martin asked me to shoot the portraits for a feature called 'What It Takes'. The feature was about the dedication and commitment needed to become an Olympian. My brief was to show each Olympian as though they had just completed a hard training session. Here is Liam Tancock, who is world record holder for the 50m backstroke.
