7 Days: The Premiere

As it’s Oscars week, I’d like to share a few images from a film premiere that I was privileged to photograph a few weeks ago. I previously mentioned providing stills for Pixel Revolution, the team producing “7 Days: The Story Of Blind Dave Heeley“. Well, the film had it’s long-awaited premiere in front of a capacity crowd at Birmingham Rep on 1st February and I photographed the crew and cast in front of the media wall as well as the live Q&A session that took place on the stage after the screening.

Congratulations to Nigel, the cast and the team. Here is a trailer for the film…

 

“Blind Dave” At The Hawthorns

I’ve never been on a football pitch at half time so it was quite an experience to emerge from the tunnel at West Bromwich Albion‘s home ground, “The Hawthorns“, late last year to a packed stadium.

I was there to shoot some “behind the scenes” images for film company Pixel Revolution and director, Nigel Davey as they filmed the presentation of a special ceremonial golden key to lifelong Albion fan, “Blind Dave” Heeley for their film about his life.

Fundraiser Dave’s most notable achievement was his completion of seven (yes, SEVEN) marathons on seven continents in seven days. Which rather put my brisk walk out of the tunnel into context.

Whilst waiting for our quick dash onto the pitch, we were based in the media room and had the opportunity to meet Chris “Kammy” Kamara, who kindly agreed to say a few words for the film and pose (briefly) for a couple of photos.
