“I was blessed to have had a track from one of my Caribbean Steel drum albums (recorded at ARC Music Prod Int), chosen to be used in the James Bond movie Casino Royale. A great set of promotional pictures were taken for me by an amazing photographer friend Jeremy Trew.

As everything in my life seems to be connected, I was not too surprised to learn that Jeremy was contracted as a commercial photographer for a company I had previously worked for in my capacity as an Electrical Engineer, running (D&B office and commercial refurbishments) and had actually taken photographs of some of my completed projects including 55 BishopsGate and Northfleet Electrical Generating Substation”
