Arctic explorer Ben Saunders poses with co-owner of Bremont, Giles English.

Ben has skied more than 6,000 km on polar expeditions since 2001. He holds the record for the longest human-powered polar journey in history (2,888 km) and for the longest solo Arctic journey by a Briton (1,032 km).

“I am an explorer of limits – geographically, physically and mentally. It’s about pure human endeavour, and the way in which I can inspire others to explore their own personal potential.”

The 2011 event took place on the 13th of December at the Armani Hotel in the Burj Khalifa and was attended by Dubai’s leaders of business and other luminaries who enjoyed the Chivas Regal brand experience and the true sense of chivalry that it stands for.

Sir David Frost delivered the keynote address and shared some experiences from his fascinating life, during which he has had the opportunity to interact with some of the most important people of our time and has witnessed a number of key moments that have influenced the course of modern history.

With only 20 minutes to shoot and already other photographers from press houses eagerly waiting for their time with the Michelin chef, Giorgio. We fired off a few safe shots with a couple of strobes and umbrellas. Wanting to see how much I could push him,  i asked Giorgio if we could head for the kitchen to get some “action shots”. He agreed! Jihane the editor of Aqua Vitae Magazine, whom I was shooting for gave me the nod and Giorgio was keen as mustard!!.. or truffle mybe!

Chivas Legends Dinner 2012

Colin was invited to be the 2012 legend for the Chivas Regal Legends Dinner. We took this portrait before the event in a private room. Colin was extremely courteous and was very easy to photograph. He is an absolute gentleman just like in some of his characters getting him to pose was a breeze. After the shoot, we went downstairs to cover the event with the rest of my team. Special thanks to Joel Gabriel who assisted me on this shoot.
