Amy Winehouse

Photo of Amy Winehouse

The very talented Amy Winehouse was very professional and extremely personable when I photographed her in London in 2007, not at all what I had expected. She was all business in the recording studio. Island Records executive Shane O’Neil was there to keep things moving along as we worked to get photographs for a CD she was recording at the time. We booked a suite at the Savoy Hotel for the photographs and her team was there with three or four different outfits for the shoot. Amy was in a good place that day and I’m glad to have photographed the massive talent. I was sad to read of her passing in 2011. Such a loss.
