Actor Ian Reddington (appearances in Eastenders, coronation street and Doctor who to name but a few) got in touch about some promotional shots for his new Documentary, all about Sheffield’s love for Henderson’s Relish www.sheffdocfest.com/films/5774.
Ian like the idea of a ‘spin off’ from Kim Kardashian’s Paper magazine shots from last year (shot photographer by Jean-Paul Goude) www.papermag.com/2014/11/kim_kardashian.php made famous by her baring all. Not an simple shoot!
So on a shoe string budget we re-worked the shots, adding some ‘Yorkshire spice’ to combine the Henderson’s Relish element. Instead of the champagne falling into a glass we would use the Relish. To make things even more complicated Ian wanted the splash to fall onto a pie…that was perched on his backside…
It wasn’t easy, it took a lot of retouch time, but I finally came to a happy medium between the two. So much thought had to go into this shoot, a massive thanks to all involved!
