Wake up call.

BBC radio are currently organising portraits of all their presenters. For my first contribution to that mammoth task it was great to be reunited with Dean McCullough. Originally from Northern Ireland Dean had been the regular breakfast presenter on Gaydio. Then at Christmas he was recruited for cover at BBC R1 over the festive season. That’s when I first had an opportunity to photograph him. And now, just 6 months or so later, he’s on the official Radio One roster, hosting early breakfast. Getting a smile out of Dean is definitely not an issue. But for these official portraits there is a specific design brief to fulfil. Plus you only get an hour so there’s definitely a need for focus..no pun intended. I enjoy this kind of work though – shoot, edit and send pretty much on the spot. Pictures are already up on the BBC website and more portrait sessions on the way. Thanks, as always, to Loftus Media. So great to be on the team.
