Glitz, Glamour and Gaviscon! The January Blog

With the stealth of a cunning fox, 2018 has crept up on me. I’m sure that 1st January used to be later in the year than this!! Looking back over December it was full on at Lynk Towers.

When Chris Evans called me to ask me to photograph the ‘Holy Trinity’ Joanna Lumley, Judy Murray and Mary Berry at Rick Steins Restaurant in Barnes for Children in Need I may have answered “YES” a little too quickly to  appear anywhere near as cool as the event demanded. 

(Clang!!! Can someone help me, I seem to have dropped several names and they have rolled under the table and I can’t reach them to put them back!!)

My London clients continue to develop with recent shoots at the legendary Langham and the exciting Portman Hotel. Every time I find myself at any of these amazing places I pinch myself and utter those immortal words “Remember where you are Adam!”

The launch of the inaugural “Iconic” magazine for the Iconic Luxury Hotels Group brought forth a realm of opportunities. A portrait shoot with Managing Director, Andrew Stembridge (the busiest man in hospitality) came with the challenge of how to photograph someone so significant yet so unpretentious. Answer- keep it simple.

The cover shoot for the magazine yielded more schoolboy dreams come true. Playing in the forest with my camera and a beautifully restored E-Type Jaguar. Someday soon someone is going to tell me to do some proper work!

In amongst all of this I still managed to capture a few personal project images. This shot of St Pauls from Millennium Bridge seems to have ticked a lot of boxes.

January seems to be the time to look forward and I am taking bookings for Spring already. However if you are thinking of portraits, produce or products then the next couple of months might be an ideal time to shoot them. You can contact me to discuss ideas or future projects. I love a good chat!
