He has already photographed Jared Leto, Shannon Leto, James Franco, Courtney Love, Michelle Williams, Ellie Goulding, Mark Ronson, Jonathan Groff, Mr Hudson, Candice Huffine, Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, George Shelley, Agyness Deyn, Jessie J, David Gandy, Paris Hilton and Fearne Cotton amongst many more and has three very regular muses that he photographs Andreja Pejic, Rita Ora and Taylor Swift.

The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.

My Top 11 Tips On The Voice UK 2015!

So The Voice UK 2015 is well underway and here is my eleven tips for Voice glory this season:

Sharon Murphy

Sharon Murphy had two turns on the Voice from Tom and Ricky and opted to join the silver fox Mr. Jones. With a unique and emotive voice Sharon, from Galway and now living in Clare, is doing Ireland proud.

Mitch Miller

With Rita turning at the last second, 26-year-old Mitch Miller must have been sweating! But I am so happy he got through. He has a very quirky, unique voice.

Emmanuel Nwamadi

Emmanuel Nwamadi has a beautiful voice. It’s soulful with a bit of R ‘N’ B and a few overtones of rock too. Very clear vocals and I’m glad Ricky turned around.

Howard Rose

With his unique take on The Who’s My Generation, Howard Rose managed to get two turns from Tom and Ricky. Again he opted to join Team Tom.

Sasha Simone

Sasha Simone also managed to get two turns from Tom and Ricky with her unique, soulful voice and opted also to join Team Tom. (Ricky must have been getting pissed off after a while! Hehe! :-))

Daniel Duke

Belfast’s Daniel Duke has an amazing folk voice and is doing Ireland proud like Sharon. (As are Claudia and Lucy, our other Irish contestants on the show this year). Tom swooped in to bag another great singer here.

Vikesh Champaneri

Singing an emotive and brilliant version of Adele’s Hometown Glory, Vikesh managed to get three turns from Rita, Tom and Ricky who he chose as his coach.

Lisa Ward

Rock chick Lisa Ward got two turns from Tom and Will and chose Team Tom after her amazing performance of Weak by Skunk Anansie.

Clark Carmody

Hairdresser Clark Carmody sung Sam Smith’s I’m Not The Only One amazing and had two turns by Rita and Tom. He opted to join Team Rita.

Stevie McCrorie

Firefighter Stevie McCrorie was the last to sing on the first show and he sang Kodaline’s All I Want brilliantly and all the coaches turned around. He decided to join Team Ricky.

Autumn Sharif

Completing Team Ricky was Autumn Sharif and she had two turns from Tom and Ricky. At last Ricky won a pitch against Tom this season! 🙂
