Bananas everywhere

John Moloney and Dave Vickers - SW Magazine July 2012

I don't like to photograph things in the same way everyone else would. I like my pictures to be original if I can - particularly my portraits. So when asked to photograph a comedian and a comedy festival organiser in a comedy club I started searching for a way of making it different from what most people would do.

After a bit of searching around finding out about the deadpan comedian John Maloney and the Dave Vickers the founder of Banana Caberet I wasn't getting far - I had a sheet full of at least 50 shot ideas, but none of them were quite grabbing me as I would like them to. Then I realised that the answer had been staring me in the face - "Banana Caberet". You can never have too many bananas, even when you turn up to a shoot with 4kg of them...
