 An afternoon with Benedict Cumberbatch

 Celebrities spend a notable portion of their time with photographers. They spend this allotted time in front of a camera, choosing how much they reveal of themselves, posing, not posing, indulging requests, refusing them… Then they go away, often leaving a lasting impression on the photographer. Which begs the question, how much of an impression can a photographer leave on a celebrity? It would be easy to leave a bad one, just be an arsehole. But to leave a lasting positive impression before anyone even sees the photos, how often does that happen? 

 I am not flamboyant, loud, boisterous, camp or crass. I possess few of the imagined stereotypical celebrity photographer qualities. I am polite, patient, anxious in the beginning, more confident as the shoot goes on, witty if I get lucky and I like to talk to my subject. Not just asking them questions, like some kind of bonus interview, but talking about myself too, so it’s a normal conversation between two normal people. I don’t give enormous amounts of direction when making portraiture. I wait, I nudge, I wait some more, I suggest, I keep waiting until ‘the photograph appears’. Sometimes I take pictures to fill the time waiting for ‘the photograph’ and sometimes those pictures work, but most of the time I know when I have got the shot I’ve waited for before looking at the back of the camera, or seeing the contact sheets. In this case, with Benedict, I shot entirely on film.

 I don’t want to exaggerate, I’m sure my assistant would tell you that to him and anyone else on the shoot observing, there were no remarkable exchanges between myself and Mr Cumberbatch. At one point I told him he was being ‘too sexy’ - I think he’d undone some buttons on his shirt - and that became sort of a running joke for the rest of the shoot, but I’m probably romanticising. Even so, it sticks in my mind, begging embellishment with each retelling. 

  It’s intimidating, in truth, to talk to someone who’s very personality has catapulted them to international stardom. I didn’t achieve some small success in photography because I’m hilarious, brilliant, witty or charming, I got to where I am because of my ‘eye’ (and to an arguably larger extent, my business strategy). Whether or not I did a good job doesn’t become evident until much later on, after the shoot has finished and everyone has gone home. Benedict on the other hand, is required to exude charisma at all times, the nature of his talent means it is instantaneously evident, judged live. To photograph someone with his strength of character is to strive frantically to capture a portion of it. Even if you only manage half a second, that’s all you need, such is the immortality of a still image.

 I’ve had a lot of excellent feedback on the story for OUT magazine, most notably from Benedict’s devoted fan-base, who arguably know him best of all, being followers of everything he does, every photo, every interview, chat show appearance and the like. Still I don’t know what Benedict himself thinks of the pictures, or me as a person for that matter, and am unlikely to ever find out, at least directly.

 All I can say with absolute certainty about my time with Sherlock, Smaug, Julian, Alan, Khan, is that it never felt awkward or uncomfortable, I spent most of it smiling, a handful of it laughing, and whether I made any sort of impression on him or not, I am eternally thankful that he happened to be my first cover.

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch swaps Baker Street for the battlefield to play King Richard III

The Sherlock star will star as Britain’s most controversial monarch Richard III in The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch swaps Baker Street for the battlefield as he plays doomed hunchback King Richard III in a thrilling new big-budget BBC2 Shakespeare adaptation.

The dashing actor ditches the deerstalker and pipe and replaces it with a golden crown and sword to play Britain’s most controversial monarch in The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses.

Giving up his Marylebone pad for a marshy filed, Cumberbatch filmed dramatic scenes from the Battle of Bosworth, the last significant clash in the 15th century civil war which tore England apart. Shooting took place last week in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.

He has a spring in his stride as he charges across the bloody battlefield with rage etched on his face.

However it all ends badly with the broken, disfigured king forlornly wandering around the blood soaked field pleading: “A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!”

The Game of Thrones-style drama, which is set to be screened on BBC2 in 2016, also stars Dame Judi Dench, Sophie Okonedo, Hugh Bonneville, Keeley Hawes and Philip Glenister.

It reunites posh Cumberbatch, 38, with his Sherlock nemesis Andrew Scott, who played Moriarty.

The Hollow Crown is based on William Shakespeare’s History Plays and is one of the BBC’s flagship dramas.

This series follows on from the 2012 Bafta award winning The Hollow Crown, which starred Ben Wishaw, Jeremy Irons and Tom Hiddleston and was an adaptation of Richard II, Henry IV, Part I and Henry IV Part II (treated as one film in two parts in the series) and Henry V.

The second series includes Henry VI (in two parts) and Richard III.

Last week dashing Cumberbatch graced the red carpet with Keira Knightly for the opening of the BFI London Film Festival.

The pair star in The Imitation Game, a wartime drama about codebreaker and computer pioneer Alan Turing.

Cumberbatch is already being tipped for a string of award nominations. If he is, it certainly won’t be a winter of discontent.

There was an idea called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of of remarkable people to see if they could become something more. To see if they could work together when we needed them to, to fight the battles that we never could.
