Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne

I shot the Flaming Lips twice before when "Yoshimi battles the pink robots" came out. They became one of my favorite bands. I went back to Oklahoma to shoot the very very cool Wayne Coyne for a Q article. The blood is a standard prop in his shows. I brought flaming contact lenses to the shoot and he agreed to wear them. The big plastic bubble is part of most live shows, Wayne gets in it and crowd-surfs. As a fan I own one, too.


As part of a campaign for the Game Show Network I shot People doing "victory dances". Here are some of my image choices.

plane spotters

These guys are plane spotters that spend many hours under Heathrow's runway approaches every week and watch/photograph planes landing and taking off. They take notes. They get exited when a new A380 from Singapore or Sydney lands, or when a Olympic flight from Athens is 7 hours delayed, instead of the usual 3 hours. I know a thing or two about 737s, 747s, 757s, 767s, and 777s, as well as A318s, A319s, A320s, A321s, A330s and A340s, so I cannot totally distance myself from these guys and I had a good time chatting with them.

Mike Myers

There is always this one big question when going into an editorial shoot: Is the person you're shooting going to go for what you have planned to do? When I presented my ideas to Mike Myers he said: "I don't like these ideas, ...............I love them!" Phew.

Jersey Couture

I have not watched the show yet, but this family is funny, I very much enjoyed shooting them.

Miami Medical for CBS

I shot the ads and gallery for a new show on CBS called Miami Medical, shooting around the set of the show on the Warner lots in Burbank.
