this beautiful image is a portrait i took of Ian McKellen playing the 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes.
i shot this portrait on 35mm film, as always. i guess i felt especially at home during the shoot since we worked in my old school building - CSM Holborn - which i have always loved the most. so great it is still being used in a creative way, i’d hate to see it turn into some bland luxury apartments (CSM has a new home at King’s Cross).
there was a magical moment by the end of the shoot which i’ll never forget. Sir Ian McKellen - thank you!
