Sir Cliff Richard OBE

  • Location: Dominion Theatre, London

Having arrived together at the venue for a major London concert we were greeted by a sea of people surrounding the stage door entrance. I have never seen a person being mobbed and engulfed by fans of all ages at close quarters - the experience is astonishing. There is a technique in handling adulation and Cliff is a grand master at his profession...read more

We entered his dressing room and I was pleasantly surprised to see such a vast mountain of greeting cards and beautiful bouquets of flowers from well-wishers. This exclusive never been seen before photograph captures that special moment before a famous rock and roll star begins to change into the stage clothes glitz required for a performance.

I have photographed Cliff on a number of occasions and I can not think of anyone more courteous and helpful - this picture being a firm favourite of his shown here. Cliff is the biggest selling singles artist of all time in the UK, with a total sales of over 27 million and UK album sales of over 18 million. He has sold more than 150 million singles worldwide and was the first British rock star to be honoured with a knighthood.

Roald Dahl

  • Location: Great Missenden

  • Print Material: Ilford Multigrade fibre base IK Photographic paper (Silver Gelatin)

It was raining heavily on the day I arrived at Great Missenden - the home of Roald Dahl - author, fighter pilot and screenwriter. I was looking forward to this photographic session especially when my daughter Sarah was one of his greatest fans...read more

I tapped on the front door - it suddenly opened and there was Roald greeting me by saying - "I don't like people with beards" - "Oh dear..." I replied "but can I come in, it's pouring with rain out here - and I'm getting soaking wet. I've come to take your photograph". "Well you'd better come in then" he said.

I entered his world and stood in the hallway - camera case in one hand thinking to myself well this session will not take long - but then the ice began to brake when we ended up talking about his collection of paintings and prints that were on the walls as we made our way to the main lounge.

"Thank God we are not going to talk about my books and I certainly don't want to be photographed in my garden hut - everyone does that". "That suits me fine" I answered "just lounge around on the sofa and off we can go". "I'm going to have a cigarette while we talk" he replied.

I began taking photographs and surprisingly he talked about the days being a fighter pilot, then onto his children's books with a captivating insight to his amazing story telling, and ended up with the paintings and painters he really admired.

Having become captured by his charismatic charm, I was invited to have a soup lunch, prepared by his wife Patricia, and continued our conversation about painters.

Thereafter, more rolls of photographs were taken but it was time to leave this fascinating person - but not before receiving a pleasant gift of signed books for Sarah with the following inscription:

To Sarah - I really like your Dad but I still don't like beards - Roald Dahl x

Roald Dahl is known as one of the 50 greatest British writers of all time.

George Martin (landscape)

  • Location: Air Studios, 1984
  • Camera: Nikon F100 Automatic Focusing
  • Limited Edition: Artist Proof with Photographers' signature
  • Film: Ilford HP5 plus 400 Black and White
  • Print Material: Ilford Multigrade fibre base IK Photographic paper (Silver Gelatin)

A photographic session usually takes around 30 minutes but on this occasion the assignment became exceptional as I was soon to discover.
Having made my way to the Air Studios London office for a 10am appointment, I was met by George Martin's secretary - Shirley. ...read more

With pleasant introductions over I was led into an impressive back room office and music room.

And there was the master of all record producers behind his office desk - on the phone arranging studio dates in his diary. I could not help over hearing a snippet of the conversation - it was with Paul McCartney - I was directed to sit on a brown sofa and then discretely opened my camera case, taking out the Nikon and simply began to photograph George - capturing his smiles.

"So you want to photograph me" were his opening words after putting down the phone. "Yes" I replied. "Well you've started I see, so lets go over what I do first". Then began one of the most exciting photographic sessions I have ever had. A complete overture on all about George Martin which culminated in a surprise ending statement "I don't work behind an office desk so let's go down to the Studio".

We ended up in Studio One at Air Studios and he began talking about the recording console process and who had been using the studio the previous week - Dire Straits. Photographs taken by Linda McCartney were hanging from the walls of various musicians including Paul - a nice touch to the studio atmosphere.

I started to take photographs again using all available natural light - with George enthusiastically talking about different recording techniques and the importance of keeping up with the ever-changing technology, especially the constant demands from musicians for new sounds for their albums.

After a short while, we agreed to break for tea and biscuits to the musicians snooker lounge and then George talked about the project just completed with Paul McCartney - Give my Regards to Broad Street - with all the challenges that applied to recording - simply magical.

I glanced at my watch - five hours had flashed past - only three frames left in the camera - no more film! I had taken nine rolls during the sessions. I arranged to see him again to go over the photo proofs to select the prints required and soon after departed.

The exclusive photograph shown here was selected by George and is currently in his private collection at Air Studios.
