Comedian Mark Watson’s 2008 Edinburgh poster.This was shot while waiting for another comedian to turn up for his shoot. I forget who the other comedian is but i do remember they forgot about the shoot. So Mark Watson walked by and had a chat, we had talked about doing a shoot at some stage and decided that right now would be as good a time as any.
We walked out of the hotel lobby and just next door was a car park entrance that went to below street level. I stayed up a level and shot down. It was nicely overcast and gave perfect conditions with no squinting and no harsh shadows.
This was my favourite shoot from the shoot and am glad that it’s being used all over Edinburgh at the moment. If you are over there, go and check his show out, but book in advance, he’s a big seller.
