Being the official photographer for the Film 4 Frightfest 2011 held at The Empire, Leicester Square I was privileged to photograph many special moments and well known faces from the horror genre over the 5 days. I have tried in this book to present these moments.
This year the book has a foreword by director Joe Lynch and is divided into sections:
- ON THE WALL
- OFF THE WALL
- LARRY FESSENDEN
- FESTERING FESTERS
- BLACK AND WHITE
Putting this collection of photos together I have tried to include most of the key moments of the event. As there was so much going on in 2 screens I have been unable to cover every moment or guest.
The book features some of the images that were shown on the large screen at the close of the festival and many more.
I am a Freelance Editorial Photographer living in Worthing. Most of my work is in Sussex and London although I do travel further afield if requested. I mainly work in the field of entertainment covering Live Music, Film and TV events, Premieres etc. My work has been published in UK national papers, periodicals and internationally. In my "spare" time I shoot fine art and stock capturing what 99.999% of the population miss as they walk around, if only they would open their eyes. People are wonderful - I feel split moments can show far more emotion and illustrate an event or person than any moving image can. Most of my inspiration comes from 1950's and 1960's black and white imagery but due to current news market trends, I don't get to deliver black and white images often. :-(
