In a new interview with Talent House Tom Leishman discussed how’s working with McFly.

TH: You have been working as the personal photographer for the chart-topping British pop rock group McFly (the youngest band to ever have a UK number one, superseding the Beatles’ earlier hold). How did you arrive at this position?
Tom: I was introduced to Dougie from McFly when I was working with the pop band The Saturdays. At the time Dougie was in a relationship with my friend Frankie Sandford, who is in The Saturdays.  At the beginning Dougie invited me to a few shows to photograph them live on the odd occasion, as time progressed I found myself going away on tour with them becoming McFly’s personal photographer. Since then I have had the privilege to have been the photographer behind the website press photos, tour brochures, posters and the 2012 official calendar.  So word of mouth basically, I’m very fortunate!

TH: Following your initial collaboration with McFly,  you went on to work with the band’s bassist Dougie Poynter and his clothing company,  Saint Kidd. Could you describe this work and the experience of focusing on apparel as well as photography?
Tom: Through working with McFly Dougie and I have gotten to know each other quite well, we both share similar views on a number of things, having a similar dress sense and style has always been a reoccurring topic. Dougie was midway through setting up a clothing label named Saint Kidd,  naturally I was interested when he approached me to be involved, immediately we started to collaborate on themes, ideas for styling and photo-shoots. I know It seems to be a reoccurring trend that members of popular bands start clothing labels to make a quick buck out of their fans, but thats not the case with Saint Kidd because Saint Kidd isn’t going to be a brand that with no effort prints on cheap simple products without any thought put into them, every inch of every product Saint Kidd produces is custom cut and designed inch by inch, we take so much care and attention to detail and the process of having an item made can be a long process, sending them back and forth from the designers and factories but it’s to make sure it’s the best we can offer!  Saint Kidd clothing is original and I’m proud to wear the products and I’m glad to say I’m involved. Since Saint Kidd launched other than help operate Saint Kidd and build the brand I’ve photographed the fashion look-books and photograph the products for the website.

TH: Could you describe a couple of especially memorable photoshoots (and could you share the photos from those shoots)?
Tom: I think my most memorable photo-shoot to this date would be one of the set ups from the McFly’s 2012 Calendar shoot, when I put the band on 9ft wooden ladders in the middle of a big lake! I had to hire two lifeguards to help me do the shoot, they swam out and placed the ladders where I wanted them to be, they then escorted each band member individually out to the ladders without them getting wet on a tiny rubber boat. They then had to push me out in the rubber boat to take the photos! The photos came out exactly how I wanted them to! I couldn’t have done it without the lifeguards and the trust from the band! The risky cost of trying to do something creative and original, totally worth it!
