One Eyeland Awards

Thank you to the One Eyeland Awards for selecting two of my images to be a finalist across three categories:

  • Editorial Personality

  • Editorial Environmental

  • People Portrait

I have fond memories of producing both of these images and both were actually hugely challenging in their own way. The Lenny Henry portrait was a character/personality thing - he really didn’t want to be there and was only wanting to give me his famous ‘media smile’. I made it my mission to back him into a corner and catch him off guard enough to get a real moment from him - unguarded. The second image was tough because I was in a wetsuit holding a Phase One above the waterline of a freezing (and potentially lethally polluted) lake in the winter. Thankfully my subject, Chris was absolutely on form (without a wetsuit!)
