We were lucky enough to be on the EE BAFTAs red carpet, just next to the photographers’ area, which allowed us to get a good view of the arrivals and take a few candid shots of the celebs.
In fact it was an oddly entertaining place to stand, because everyone wants their photo taken and there are so many famous faces that they have to form a queue – it’s the movie star version of waiting in line at the checkout.
It meant that we were able to snap the likes of Henry Cavill and Rosamund Pike before they went full glare in front of a thousand lenses, when they were simply waiting for their turn.
We also managed to grab shots of many of the stars of Pride, including George MacKay, Freddie Fox, Andrew Scott, Imelda Staunton, and director Matthew Warchus. Also on hand to give things a bit of an LGBT flavour was Benedict Cumberbatch, who was nominated for playing gay mathematician Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.
There were a few oddities, not least that the most screaming and general hubbub didn’t come for a movie star at all, but was reserved for the arrival of David Beckham.
And I’m also very pleased to have managed to make my own Marvel/DC crossover by capturing The Hulk and Superman in the same shot (aka Mark Ruffalo and Henry Cavill).
Take a look at some of our pics from the BAFTA red carpet below:
