Ex-Coronation Street’s Adam Rickitt – Checkum

The latest star to join in with the Checkum testicular cancer awareness campaign is ex-Coronation Street actor and music star, Adam Rickitt.  Joined by my regular Art Director, Andrea and Make-up Artist, Sadaf Saeed we photographed Adam in Manchester at Slaughterhouse studios around a week ago. This time, some additional video footage was captured during the ‘less-exposed’ parts of the photo shoot, which will be aired on TV sometime in the future. All will be revealed as to what goes on behind the scenes of a Checkum shoot!

The photos from the shoot have so far been published in today’s Sun newspaper (and The Sun on-line), Heat on-line, plus OK on-line. In addition, they appear on the Coronation Street blog, Adam Rickitt’s official website and Metro. All images were captured on a 24.5mp Nikon D3x, that has been kindly lent to us by Nikon UK by way of supporting the campaign. Lens was my own Nikon 70-200vr 2.8. The studio flash used was my own Elinchrom kit – I generally shot with four flash heads and two ‘polyboard’ reflectors.
