Paul Ellis - The Scottish King of Swing | Musician portrait



I had the great pleasure of photographing The Scottish King of Swing, Paul Ellis, over the holidays.
We wanted to go for an old-fashioned music club feel, black stage with directional light, and had lots of fun creating the look and feel in the studio (HUGE thanks to Niels and Alie from Blue Sky for emerging from their holiday cocoon to let us use the studio space!)
The highlight of the shoot was definitely when I asked Paul to sing some Sinatra for me, while I snapped away - boy, can he sing! It is no wonder he counts Shirley Bassey, Buddy Greco and Cilla Black among his fans.

Jingle all the way...

The holiday starts here for First Light. We'll be closed between Christmas and New Year and will be back in the office on 7th January 2016.
Thank you to all our wonderful clients, colleagues and friends who have been such a great part of the year that's gone.

I'm off to spend some time with these two...
