editorial photography interesting people

As part of my work as a press photographer, I am very lucky to get the chance to meet and photograph some really interesting people. Sometimes they are well known, other times they are not. It is great to hear their story and to try and tell it in a picture. The following are some examples of this, they are my favourite type of jobs. When I get to spend time with people and create great portraits.

The first is Richard Paterson who is the master blender at Whyte and Mackay. I was sent to do the pictures for a feature about how he had recreated the whisky, taken by Shackleton to the Antarctic. It was found intact in the ice by the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust, almost 100 years later.

Richard masterfully recreated the whiskey and it is being sold as part of a limited run, complete with an identical bottle, label and packaging.

Next is Mark Dempster, he used to be a homeless drug addict, living in London, selling drugs and smuggling drugs to get by. He has now kicked his habit and now has his own clinic in Harley Street, where he is one of the UK’s most respected experts, helping thousands of people quit drinking and drugs.

I photographed him in Partick, where he grew up and his addictions started.

I love the TV program Banged Up Abroad, which is about people who are arrested abroad, usually for smuggling drugs. So I found it fascinating, hearing about Mark’s adventures transporting drugs, all over the world.

Lastly is Graham McLaren, who has adapted, designed and directed the National Theatre of Scotland’s people/puppet version of A Christmas Carol. It was being shown in The Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy. Benny Young leads a talented cast as the frugal Scrooge, who is scared to death by visits from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, he shares the rave reviews with puppets that bring the nightmarish visions to life.

The actor-manipulated models catch the eye and the headlines but, according to Graham, they also allow the story to remain true to Dickens’ book.

Graham took his inspiration for A Christmas Carol from Dickens’ original performance.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get any puppets or props to do the picture, so it was a straight forward portrait, but I was really happy with how it turned out.
