Back­stage

Q (UK) - - Backstage... - Q Photo Editor, Dave Brolan

“Alex Lake shot over 60 por­traits in just over an hour in our photo studio back­stage at the Q Awards at Lon­don’s Round­house. For con­text, we usu­ally shoot one por­trait a day, so it was very hec­tic in­deed. Still, the im­promptu studio be­came a hang­out for old friends catch­ing up as well as artists meet­ing for the first time. De­spite the fran­tic pace, ev­ery­thing ran smoothly with many special mo­ments, such as Blondie and M.I.A. ask­ing us po­litely if they could come and have their pic­ture taken to­gether. All told, a very suc­cess­ful, if fairly atyp­i­cal Q shoot.”
