At the end of last year I had the pleasure of photographing Alen Seed for a future single cover and press. The idea of the shoot (over 2 days) was to build up a set of photographs, the first day was on the streets of Central London and a second day with a studio set up. I will put up more images as they are released.
Mike Moloney and I were recently approached by Paul Weller about our film 24 Hrs Here. We agreed to let him use part of the film for the lead single on his new album. Have a look at his website for more info, www.paulweller.com
Never one to rest on his laurels, Paul Weller is a musician who is always evolving and on March 26th 2012 the next phase of his evolution begins with the release of ‘Sonik Kicks’.
On his eleventh solo album Weller continues to the push the boundaries, looking forward rather than back unlike so many of his contemporaries.
Sample a taster of what’s to come right now on www.paulweller.com in the form of album track 'Around The Lake’.
The track is accompanied by a sequence from a short film that Paul is a fan of called '24hrs, Pavey Ark’ which was directed by Mike Moloney & John Hooper.
'Around The Lake’ is available to download from iTunes, click here to get your copy now.

Among other amazing items up for grabs are a signed album and a one off print of the stunning Melanie C, taken last year and signed by myself and Melanie. For more information please look at our blog HERE and if you can’t make the auction please sponsor us HERE.
A good day spent shooting Haunts (Black Records)at a stables in Kent, (the name and address of which will be added once I remember). The shoot was influenced by the film “Haunts (1977), May Britt plays a seemingly innocent farm girl convinced that her slovenly uncle (Cameron Mitchell) is the man responsible for the bloody scissor-murders of several local girls.”
A busy month is nearly over, I can start the new one with a truly splendid night at Still. On the eve of his E.p. release Sam Beer will begin followed by The Bookhouse Boys. Click on their names listen to them then I will see you there.
