HELLO! & The Getty Gallery

One of my photographs is exhibited at Getty Images Gallery.

I thought I would share my claim to fame from before I had a blog.  To celebrate 20 years of HELLO! Magazine they decided to choose the best 100 photographs over that period and put in a exhibition at the Getty Image Gallery, Soho, London and they chose one from Andrew John photography, at Michael and Louise Owens Wedding I shot back in 2005. It was the one of Michael and Louise at the top table with Gemma in the middle.  I used a fish eye lense to get the curved effect. It was great to think from all the 1000s  of photographs, they chose one of mine, COOL!

Quote from Getty website – HELLO! Celebrating 20 Years

To celebrate its 20th Anniversary HELLO! Magazine has created a star-studded photographic exhibition featuring some of its most glamorous, intimate and iconic photoshoots.

“We are absolutely thrilled to share 20 years of HELLO! with the public,” says Ronnie Whelan, former editor and curator of the exhibition. “We have an extraordinary story to tell, and this exhibition seems the most fitting way to celebrate the colourful history of one of the most iconic titles of its time.”

During the ‘Star-studded’ exhibition I got chatting to some great guys promoting a new larger from Peru called Cusquena. We later went to a pizza restaurant where we were introduced to the UK Managing Director of Red Bull, who took us to his HQ for after hour drinks.  What a fantastic office it had a futuristic bar on the top floor and felt like something of the 70’s tv show Space 1999 with a roof terrace looking across to CentrePoint and the  roofscape of London, there was a slide between floors and the bar on the top floor served any drink you liked as long as it was mixed with Red Bull…..What a night!  Check out the photos of it below…
