Dougie is the bass player and backing vocalist of british pop-rock band McFly. He has co-writer credits on many of McFly's tracks, including the lead writer credit on their 2007 number one single "Transylvania". Poynter also wrote an unrecorded track called Silence Is A Scary Sound, which is featured as a live recording on their third studio album Motion In The Ocean. Poynter was 15 when he joined the band. Because of his young age, Dougie and the other members of McFly hold the record for the youngest band to ever have a debut album go straight to number one, a record previously held by The Beatles. McFly are currently recording their 6th studio album... keep reading.

We all know how talented is Tom Leishman and how great is the work he does with the McFly boys, well now he did an interview and obviously he talked about them and said some interesting things,like that the promotional pics for Album Six are already done, now we only need the album to be released.
If you’ve ever seen the work of Mr Tom Leishman, then there’s no doubt that you’ll have been blown away. Self taught, Tom has worked with a countless amount of awesome people (and creatures) and his creative talent ensures that each shot stands apart from the rest.
I caught up with him to find out what he’s been up to recently…
Sup Tom! How are things with you?
Hello, I’m in great health and everything’s going pretty good thanks! I’ve been so busy recently! I’ve just finished shooting the new McFly press photos for their new album, album 6, and straight after that, back to back we then did the press shots for the McBusted 2014 tour campaign! I love being busy!
You’ve worked with an endless amount of famous faces – was there a particular breaking point which kicked it all off?
The first known famous person I worked with was my friend Frankie Sandford from the girl band The Saturdays, we had mutual friends, one of my good friends Dan (who I met photographing his band) went to school with her. We were introduced at a party years before she was even in the girl band, when her band got together she asked me to photograph her band so I did!
Since then I’ve been recommended and passed on. Working with McFly has been incredible, I really enjoy their company even if they do fart ALL the time! We get on great, working with them really enhanced my name as a photographer. It was never my intention to photograph famous people, it’s just happen, it’s fun though.
