The Diana World Premiere was held at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square tonight (5 September). The film stars Naomi Watts in the lead role as Princess Diana and Naveen Andrews as Hasnet Khan.

The film is due for release in the UK on 20 September 2013 and is based on the Diana book.

The film was directed by Oliver Herschbiegel. Naomi Watts has been nominated for an Academy Award for this role. Method acting at it’s hardest as she had a very public role and everybody from that time knew her well via TV and the media.

Focused mainly on getting shots of Naomi Watts. She proved  a tricky one to get but managed to get full length, crowd and close up shots after moving quite a few times and thanks to a 10L Mayo bucket!

The World War Z World Premiere was held in Leicester Square this Sunday afternoon on 2 June. Don’t normally shoot on the weekends but things like the BAFTA’s or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in town…. you just have to make exceptions.

With an extensive guest list including the main star of the film Brad Pitt accompanied by of course Angelina Jolie who is not in this production but came to offer her support on the day. Names at the red carpet event included other cast members and guests including Adam Pitts, Chris Wolstenholme, Daniella kertesz, Dexter Fletcher, Dominic Howard, Joel Peat, John Gordon Sinclair, Kimberly Wyatt, Marc Forster, Matthew Bellamy, Mireille Enos, Natasha Bedingfield, Peter Capaldi and Thomas Howes.

The attitude for shooting this event from within the crowds was if I get anything at all half decent it will be a result, but in reality wasn’t expecting that much due to the names involved here and the resulting crowds and the fact I got there about a mere couple of hours before the premiere started.

For some reason the above photo grabs the headline for me with Angelina Jolie in the foreground and Brad Pitt watching over the proceedings of me taking a photo of her in the background. No direct eye contact from either of them, but they are there and nothing is being said but a lot is being said by their actions in front of my camera.  A possible silent nod of approval in  my direction.

There’s just something about this photo I can’t put my finger on, that makes it stand out, an intimate moment sort of shot amidst the chaos of a film premiere scenario. Something a bit different. This was a Brad Pitt night but with the recent health news surrounding Jolie the above  photo sort of sums up that life headlines and health are sometimes more important than a film which becomes secondary.

In summary managed to get a few decent shots more than what was expected anyway..

The Jack Reacher World Premiere was held last night in Central London and in red carpet fashion terms the headline goes to Rosamund Pike as she seemed to steal the show in a canary yellow long flowing ensemble that certainly caught the eye. Nicole Scherzinger was a very close second in a black classy stylish look. See the Jack Reacher Part 3 article after this one for the Nicole Scherzinger and more pics.

The Les Miserables World Premiere was held last night in Leicester Square at the Odeon and also The Empire. A large premiere this one and the pull for the crowds was strong for this due to the all star cast that appear in this film with names (according to the event briefing) such as Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried amongst others all also rumoured to be turning up for this major film premiere event. Wouldn’t miss this for the world.

On the night in red carpet terms Amanda Seyfried stole the show with a quite revealing number and Anne Hathaway went round warming every fans hands and spent at least half an hour meeting fans and signing autographs. Hugh Jackman gets the red carpet humour award and had a laugh in front of my camera (see photo in another part of this article)!

The Gambit Premiere was held last night at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square in London and this film stars Cameron Diaz, Academy Award Winner Colin Firth (The Kings Speech) along with Alan Rickman. Some big names here and the crowds came out in force for this one. A large ad in the Metro paper also raised this premieres profile considerably.

The headline goes to Cameron Diaz as she seemed to steal the show in a black and white ensemble driving the crowds which were pretty large by 6pm into a frenzy as shown in the photo above. cont (more…)

Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace at the Prometheus Premiere London Press Area

The Prometheus Premiere was held last night (31 May) at The Empire in Leicester Square and a few big stars turned out for this one and a certain celebrity blogger and photographer by the name of FJ was also in attendance. This was a personal visit and this article is written in that style. Was not there in any professional capacity whatsoever, (well maybe partially) no pressure, just grab a few shots, if I get anything resembling a couple of stars I’ll be happy. The shots that appear here are shots that anybody could take with a bit of premiere and camera savvy, it’s just knowing where to stand (the spot is vital and more important than the camera) and having a camera that can cherry pick people out 50-100yds away is handy and a fast lens is very helpful to keep shutter speeds high to stop blur and keep things razor sharp..Bridge cameras are ideal for this sort of thing providing they have a fast lens, most unfortunately do not!
