I'm a London based photographer, presenter and writer. Before my career in advertising photography I worked in the music business for 13 years, and from 1975 - 1986 for the rock band Queen.
My Munich exhibition has moved to Galerie Stephen Hoffman - Pranner Str 5 - rear of Bayerischerhof until further notice. Original prints are available at the gallery or to order - please contact Stephen:

I thank everybody who visited the exhibition and for your countless kind words and feedback, and to the many people who bought prints of my work - I sincerely thank you, and hope the images you display at your homes give you pleasure and inspiration. It has been a wonderful time revisiting photographs I took around 40 years ago - which bring back so many memories of happy, wild and exciting days !

My sincere thanks to everybody who attended the opening, despite the increased restrictions and test requirements in Bavaria. Special thanks to Karin Braun, Galerie Stephen Hoffman and Frau Volkhardt of Bayerischerhof hotel for their hard work, support and enthusiasm in making this celebration of Freddie and Queen in Munich happen.
I am often invited to do talks on my time with Queen and the music business in the 1970s & '80s. Most are for private clients and corporate events. I tailor the format and style of my talk to suit the client; on topics such as teamwork, logistics, talent, motivation - or simply entertainment and good old 'Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll' !
Recent talks for clients in London, the U.K and Europe include: Coca Cola, Shakespeare Martineau, Tileyard Music Production Village, The Union - Soho, Birddog Branding & Communications, Strategic Dimensions, BIMM institution, ICMP Music college, CALM and Papyrus charities and Funzing talks.
I will post any upcoming talks here that are available to the public.
Please contact me if you are interested in a talk or presentation.

The paperback edition of my book Queen Unseen is published by Music Press - an imprint of John Blake Publishing. Four years on from the original hardback edition, I had chance to reflect, and include new stories, observations and memories, while editing what I felt didn't work; tightening the writing to make the book flow better. The structure and chapters remains the same as the original.
NB: This is NOT a new book, but a revised and edited version of the original hardback edition published in 2011. Paperback edition has quotes and reviews from the original book and a postscript.

Queen Unseen is an account of the many exciting years I spent on tour, in the recording studio, at video shoots and day-to-day life with one of the world's biggest and best ever rock bands. It is an insightful and humorous account of the 1970s &'80s, for anybody who has ever wondered what working for Queen or a major rock band of that era really entailed. The book is not a chronological history or definitive biography of the band, but my personal story of travelling the world and living the rock and roll lifestyle - to the full!
There are photo sections in the book that contain colour and black & white images from my Queen The Unseen Archive show that has been exhibited internationally.
