Back when I shot the below image I was a recent convert - while i had been aware of his music - I was persuaded to see him at Glastonbury a month earlier that year. A super hot Sunday afternoon spent with friends watching Neil Diamond, Goldfrapp and then Leonard on the Pyramid - lovely and I quickly became a fan. So covering the Big Chill Festival a few weeks later, he was high on my list of priorities, both to photograph and enjoy. The below image was my favourite and I've got an A3 print of it hanging in my hallway. If would like to licence editorial usage please contact me as soon as possible. RIP Leonard.

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
