Tom Andrews

My friend Rich asked me to come along and play on a shoot he was doing with up and coming singing sensation Tom Andrews.
So, off I went to Devon to hang out at Fagin's Antiques (which is by the way, the most amazing place ever!) to shine some lights and take some snaps of this gorgeous young lad, who is very nice. As it happens, so is his mum, and so is his dad.

The White Room. Short Film

The boys at Deadbeat have done a collaboration with Charlotte Bibby and her fancy new camera.... 
It involved me smoking an entire packet of ciggeretes whilst sitting naked in a bath surrounded by people, and a lizzard.

It was fun.
