There are two things in life I take pretty seriously (apart from my wife, that is!) namely my photography and my music. Photographing musicians is a mainstay of my photography and a number of them I think I can safely say have become friends. One of the best amongst those is the great innovative jazz pianist Neil Cowley who I have photographed many times. I had however failed to notice that there was a fourth member of his trio, namely a dinosaur called Derek who accompanies him to performances. So the last time I saw Neil I felt it necessary to take Derek’s portrait and include him in the Music and Musicians gallery on my web site. I have presented him here in order to make up for my omission and to give him the exposure he deserves. He was a great sitter who gave me no problem at all.
