Not much to say about this really I just quite like the image its quite old now but I dont think that matters, It was shot by Grahame Montgomery who is a bit of a "name" by all accounts.

Now if you give a shit about football this is probably a big deal, I'm dont but thought I would do the hilarious lid on head shot that footballers always do when they have kicked a bit of blown up dried animal covering past some other blokes.
This I think is the FA cup probably called something else now maybe the 'Twitter egg cup' or the "coke full fat false teeth cup" who knows, who cares?
Now I realise its already on the blog but Im going to flog this one to death and who wouldn't?
So what happened was this, I get a call to go down to Pinewood Studios and we all end up waiting for about four hours and eventualy get called onto the set not knowing what it was for. Turns out its for this. So I'm stood talking to the late great Tony Scott while A-List actors including Robert Redford are sat waiting for the next take, anyway I get the part and spend the next week filling in for Brad Pitt cos he's swaned off doing something else. Obviously no-one could tell I wasnt Pitty ( as us who are close call him). I had a great week setting off bombs firing guns licking envelopes that sort of high octaine stuff us Pitt-boys get up to when were being tough and doing office related tasks.
By the end of the week everyone wanted to be my best friend and said i should continue to point at things for a living cos the way I did that envelope thing was brill! Braders probably fell on hard times or sumat after this cos I havent heard hide nor hair of him since?
In the photos below is a bloke who was in a film and in the other a man who this week pointed at some chocolates and a chicken, go figure.
Before photoshop had really took a hold and shot painstakenly on 10* 8* film once again. This was taken from a series for a cable company just as the internet was in its infancy. Probem for me with this type of shot is that the camera is where my head should be so inevitably I end up at the physio after eight hours trying to look relaxed and natural while Im actually crouching under the tripod and camera.
poor me, diddy dumms!
Back when tobacco was allowed to be advertised in this country, I never really liked doing the cigs and was glad when it was banned to be honest. I always thought that other products would fill the void left and I think that's what happened.
This one was shot by a photographer called Paul Bevitt, another perfectionist who would shoot on 10* 8* film with dozens of polaroids which ment I had to stay perfectly still for hours on end.
The hair,nails and make up for this shot took a good three hours followed by another six or seven sat in the chair while everything else was perfected.
Another one from almost twenty years ago, just when I got started hand modelling an agent noticed my feet were ok, so got a couple of jobs doing feet. I dont do feet any more I prefer to stick to the hands.
An update of whats going on over at Creative Cow, great site for uploading your showreels to and it's free which being a frugal Yorkshireman always comes in handy (pun intended).
I'm sure you know the saying about a Yorkshireman is like a Scotchman but with the generosity squeezed out? Well not true in my case although I do have deep pockets and short arms.
Anyway enough inane ramblings please enjoy the showreel and hopefully get in touch if you need a hand.
