You all know I love to photograph amazing characters for the Alter Ego portraits, and a few weeks ago I saw that these 2 chaps were visiting the Peaky Blinders Bar in Southport , so I contacted Rob , the owner of the Bar and he kindly put me in touch with them , and we arranged a last minute photoshoot . Both men adore the show and dress so much like the characters , and what an awesomely smart ‘look’ it is, beautiful suits , shirts and braces , and the trademark razor blade in the peak of their caps
The show is about a gangster family and is set in 1919 Birmingham with the lead character Tommy Shelby who is determined to move up in the world. As a photographer , it’s a wonderful series to watch , incredibly stylish , beautifully lit and great atmosphere. We aimed , in the photoshoot to show some of the character of the show , some of the menace , the darker side of life .
The new Season of Peaky Blinders starts tonight – hope you enjoy these photographs and enjoy the show!
