World Backup Day with Drobo

Backing up my imagery has always been important for me. However, it was when I started working on my 20 year retrospective PHO20GRAPHY that it really hit home. I was working with thousands of images. We spent months scanning my older photographic prints, and about a year shooting new digital imagery; all this had to be really securely backed up and well organised. Our Drobos were an invaluable part of the whole book production process. I have a lot of images that mean something special to me. However, this is the image that I would consider to be the turning point in my career. It was the first time that I felt my vision had been fully realised and that anything was achievable. That was 28 years ago. Image of Vicky Brannigan at Morgan the Agency, make-up by Fiona Connon, hair James Mooney and styling by Nadia Pfeiffer.

Tesla

Congratulations to Elon Musk on his latest achievement "The Falcon Heavy".  As I sit here writing this blog post a Starman sitting in a tin can is navigating the heavens. The Tesla Roadster – with the message “Don’t panic!” stamped on the dashboard and David Bowie playing on the speakers - moving at 11km per second on a 400 million mile journey. Its projected path will bring it close to Mars. There is a tiny chance it might crash into the planet. If it stays on course, it will instead drift through space, potentially for millions of years. I had great fun directing a test advert for Tesla last year, what an amazing car!!!
