What Do You Take For Granted ?

For a recent commission for Toyota, we stopped complete strangers on the streets of London and recorded their response to the philosophical question “What do you take for granted’? My Independence, My Health, Music and bizarrely Deodorant were just some of the replies!!

Virgin Strive Challenge

Virgin Stive Challenge_Michael Clement 2 Virgin Strive Challenge_Michael Clement 1

Congratulations to the whole of the Virgin Strive Challenge team that have just successfully completed the journey from London to the peak of The Matterhorn in Switzerland.

The different legs of the journey saw the group complete three marathons from London to Dover, row the English Channel, cycle 900km to Verbier in Switzerland and hike seven days across the alps.

The event is raising money for Big Change, a charity founded by six friends including Sam Branson, Holly Branson, and Princess Beatrice. Other famous faces to take part in the marathon included Ben Ainslie, funnyman Jack Whitehall and singer Alexandra Burke.

I was commissioned to photograph Sam Branson (Richard Branson’s son) and Noah Devereux for a cover shoot for Virgin’s ‘Roger Magazine’.

“Him with his foot in his Mouth”

‘Him with his foot in his mouth’ by the American Nobel Prize winner ‘Saul Bellow’ is an inspired novel about an aging man writing an apology for his rudeness.  The first ever UK theatre adaption has taken to the stage as a one man show. These portraits were taken of actor Stephen Chance hours before the opening show at The Greenwich Theatre.
