Many of my photographs are inspirations for paintings.
My fave images are below, 24 black and white, 8 color. It’s all about the staging, direction, lighting, script…
When I moved to New York City to become a professional photographer, I did not know anyone there and was self-taught. Eventually I was hired by Andy Warhol, and photographed Morgan Freeman, Lenny Kravitz, Kevin Bacon, Kate Moss, designer Vivien Westwood, and many others, famous and infamous. I worked in NYC and London on assignment for Vogue, British Elle, Interview, Blitz, The London Sunday Times Magazine, Bomb, and others.
I also took some photographs of myself as characters. Often my best images come from my own ideas, rather than an assignment. If I used my photograph as inspiration for an artwork, I have included it under the reproduction of the paintings on this site.
Millennium Images in London represents some of my photographs.
