A Birthday Party

I’ve been extremely remiss in updating the blog over the last few weeks. The season has been busy and the blog has just not received the attention it deserves. I’m going to sort that out from now on with some regular posts to bring things up to date.

Many moons ago I used to work with an unsigned band called The Savage Jazz. In doing so, I made friends with a fine chap called Quin Murray. He was one of the bands’ most ardent fans and could always be relied on to show his face at gigs and inevitably seemed to bring plenty of support. Quin and I have remained in regular but infrequent touch and over the years Quin’s developed a particular interest in photography. These days he is a fine photographer in his own right. He has an immensely interesting family heritage including numerous noted ancestors such as John Murray, the famous publisher of amongst others, Byron, Darwin and Austin.

Quin contacted me earlier in the year and asked whether I could possibly come and shoot his 21st Birthday celebrations at 50 Albemarle Street, the London offices of the John Murray publishing house. I was thrilled to say yes and it proved to be an infinitely interesting event to shoot. The offices are literally dripping in history and though the rooms made for some close quarters shooting when filled with 100 odd guests, the evening was great fun. These are some of my particular favourites.
