Archives & Unpublished Portraits:

I've been sorting out my archives, organising the files, etc. Not exciting work in one sense but its been interesting to see many photos I'd forgotten I'd taken. Often only a few portraits from shoots get used at the time and many others never get finished at all. If its a magazine shoot say, and they run four or five photographs from a shoot, there are others that are edited out and not used for whatever reason, maybe they didn't fit the feel of the feature, or were similar to another that was used.
I'll have to find a way to use some as I really like many of them. I'll just put up one example below. Its a shoot I did with Kasabian in 2006 for U.S. magazine Filter. A few portraits ran with the story, one of them is the landscape format portrait of the group on a city rooftop, below. The other two, the playful group shot, and the photograph of singer Tom Meighan on his own were not run with the feature, so I thought I'd share them here today.

I may post others from sessions but I thought these may be interesting to see as an example. Some may be posted on my Facebook page too, here; Michael Robert Williams FB.
