Stephen accepted my invitation to sit for a portrait at the London Studio. I’ve admired his work for many years. Graham is not only a screen icon, but a fellow scouser.

Exceptionally talented and known for playing no-nonsense gritty characters. I aimed to capture Stephens métier in my portraits, directing him to pose as emotionless, then changing direction to capture fierce and exasperated expressions.
