Thrilled to be able to share these pictures of my gorgeous friend – and gospel singer par excellence – Janine Dyer. If you don’t recognise her yet, it won’t be long before you do… she is a contestant on BBC One’s The Voice 2016 and I have every faith she can go all the way! Switch on this coming Saturday, 16 January, to catch her first audition… Meanwhile, I’ve been lucky enough to sing with Janine on her Sheffield Community Choir for a couple of years, so I knew we’d have a laugh on this shoot and I was anticipating some great images to come from it. I wasn’t wrong. You’ll see that Janine was a really good sport, and is incredibly photogenic and natural in front of the camera. It was a blessing to work with her and bring you these beautiful shots of a truly fabulous lady!
Images taken on location at one of my favourite places in this city, The Millennium Gallery, courtesy of Museums Sheffield …. with a few at my old piano at home. Watch out for the dodgy keys Janine!
Starting off inside the Millennium Gallery, home to great art, craft and design right in the redeveloped heart of Sheffield.
These escalators are nothing like the London Underground… No need to keep to the right up here love!
Here is one of my absolute favourites…. Being a January afternoon in Yorkshire, it was pretty much raining, but we found enough shelter and wonderful wistful light for a stunning portrait.
Back to mine for a much-needed brew, a chocolate biscuit or two and a little go on the piano…
Janine, wishing you all the luck in this world and beyond – and if you ever need a slightly-out-of-tune piano to practice on, you know where to come! 😀
