Arctic Monkeys make The Fly, September Issue

Great mag this month. I can well understand why the regular reader of this blog may grow a tad weary of my constant enthusiasm for my own work with The Fly magazine. If that is the case, I of course apologise - though it does beg the question - what you doin' back here huh? Anyway, no time for that, because it's the Arctic Monkeys! They came into Ermine Works the Monday after their Glastonbury weekend success and couldn't have been cooler, they knew the deal well, we cracked on and in no time at all I knew we had a great cover. I wanted a classic look, even shadow-less lighting so we could have a clear idea of who they were and what they looked like in 2013. A punchy process (light soft, process hard) and lo, a super clean portrait of a Great British band. Thanks fellas.
