Pic From The Archives: Andrew Lincoln. This portrait was shot for a show called Strike Back, shot in Johannesburg i South Africa. We shot loads and loads of material of the actors in the studio on white backgrounds, and loads of background plates out in the hills, and comped everything together to make dramatic, filmic publicity shots, but one extra thing i really wanted to do was a series of intimate portraits, darkly lit, so i persuaded the client to let me set it up and shot them alongside all the other material. They ended up loving it and produced huge prints which they mounted around the venue at the premiere screening in Leicester Square.
