portraits ( and cheek )

how about some portraits from my website today ?

jamie oliver.
i did this photo for an australian magazine who had just voted him 2nd sexiest
man in the world.

while i wouldn't agree that he is second behind me as sexiest man in the world,
i would like to say that i have a lot of time for jamie oliver.

he is a really nice bloke.

oh, i mean that he's a good bloke... not that i fancy him...

am i digging a hole here or what ?

when i tell people that i shot jeffrey archer in his penthouse apartment they 
are usually disappointed to hear that...

( oh i'm sure you can finish that line yourselves )

andrew neill.
he wasn't as chatty as jamie oliver, not even as chatty as jeffrey archer.
but he was a very nice chap to photograph

the cheeky girls.
they were surprisingly un-cheeky.
on the cheek scale they were way behind jamie oliver.

lady victoria hervey.


trevor bayliss.
a very interesting bloke.
cheekier than jamie oliver too.

david james.
he was top bloke.
after the shoot he gave me his gloves and signed them.
he places somewhere between jamie oliver and jeffrey archer on the cheek-o-meter

i can't remember this bloke's name but he owns some very good restaurants
and clubs. he was what i'd call fairly cheeky. he kept calling my assistant "rosie"
in a broad scottish accent even though he wasn't scottish.

trevor eve.
he liked my camera very much.
he's not trying to sell me a necklace here by the way.
it was a still for a tv programme.

tara fitzgerald. although i've seen her acting cheekily in films
i found her to be jolly serious in real life.
this is not a still from a tv programme she was in, it's in her shed at home
and she really is into studying forensic science in her spare time.

ok i was being cheeky there.

sarah jane mee.
she is a tv presenter and is right into sport.
she talked non-stop about footy.

this was funny... or maybe you had to be there.
it was...
oh it's a long story but basically i didn't know the chef ( tom aikens )
had a twin brother and was wondering why i'd ask him something then he'd
go off to find the answer, come back and not talk to me.
( yes, you had to be there - ed )

these two actresses i photographed for ok! magazine a few years ago.
the cheekiest person on this shoot was my assistant.

and finally for today. 
a portrait i did of a guitarist with a website i really like the name of.

cheeky !
