Slash for Total Guitar.

I wanted to shoot something a little different with Slash. Whenever I think of portraits of Slash they are generally of him against a plain background. I used the basement at Gibson Guitar rooms in Soho, London. This is the double page layout used in Total Guitar magazine. My favourite image from the shoot is the one below of him looking down and it feeling like more of a private moment.

Slash and Guns n Roses are one of the biggest reasons I have spent a career shooting music. I was a 12 year old kid from out bush in Australia when I first saw Guns n Roses. I travelled to Sydney with my best mate that lived across the river from me on a dairy farm and saw them on the Appetite for Destruction tour in 1988.
