Mc Coy's - Al Murray The Pub Landlord

Adam De Silva - Friday, March 14, 2014

I was recently commissioned to shoot Al Murray for McCoy’s crisps.

McCoy’s agency BMB wanted to capture some great portraits of Al Murray as the much loved character, ‘The Pub Landlord’ for their new ‘Rio Local’ campaign, in which people can vote online to put their local pub on a plane to Rio De Janeiro.  The lucky wining pub will be recreated in Rio for the 2014 World Cup.

Was a great day & fun shoot to be part of… as soon as you hear the words ‘Shoot Al Murray in a pub’, you know it’s going to be a good’un.

Al was an absolute gent and all round top funny bloke!

Big thanks to Pat, Toby, Stephen & Vijay at BMB. Also huge thanks to Nick & Beth who helped out on the day, your assistance was brilliant & much appreciated. Last but not least thanks to Sophie Lawes for the retouching and brilliant banter.

If you want to see the shots in situ, head over to the McCoy’s website & perhaps even get involved & nominate your local boozer.
