New Photo Experience
Having been used to shooting fashion photos and ballet I though I'd have a go at photographing a stage of the 2012 Tour of Britain. You spend half an hour waiting and then you have got five seconds to get in as many shots as you can! Nevertheless, I captured the British Team, including Mark Cavendish and the outright winner, Jonathan Tiernan-Locke. A few photos can be seen in my Gallery.
My Claim to Fame
I was reading the Sunday Times' Culture magazine this weekend. One the articles was on Rory Gallagher by his brother Donal. He was the first big rock star to come out of Ireland, similar to Jimmy Hendrix.
In my early hairdressing days one of my clients asked me if I would be interested in going round to her place in Putney and cutting hair for four guys in a rock band. They were about to open their first gig at the Marquee in London. The name of the band was The Taste, hence Rory Gallagher. Rory and I got on very well, he came from Cork, as did my father. In those days he was a shy guy. He wrote a few letters to me when the band was touring Ireland and asked me to go and see them. That didn't happen. I wish I had communicated with him as he then went on to become one of the world's top guitarists and sold more than 30 million albums – that would have been a cool friend!
