Both happy and surprised to have had him on this. If you’re a reader of rock music magazine, Kerrang, you’ll no doubt be familiar with his photography work.
Say Hi to Paul Harries, a renowned music photographer who has worked extensively in the music scene now over two decades. He has photographed many of the artists whose music adorns your playlist. He even hung out with Corey from Slipknot in a field, as part of a photo session. Paul’s interest started around the time when musical greats such as Adam Ant and Sixiousie Sioux began making their mark on the music scene.
In that time Paul has even dabbled in making music videos with friends who are also film-makers, and apparently, it’s not that different from directing a photo-session. Within the last five years, he has curated his own exhibition displaying his images from his collection of Slipknot. And it was also ten years ago he took part in another exhibition in which he displayed his work alongside five other photographers including Andy Willsher. Paul Harries’s work can be seen in the rock magazine, Kerrang.

When I was doing a Q&A with this guy I had no idea that he originally lived in the same region as me.
Factory worker, Carpet salesman, Car cleaner, retail work and window fitter, even a stint as a rock musician, it seems there’s not a job that writer/director and screen writer Andrew David Barker has not had. With no past experience in the literature world Andrew put pen to paper and began teaching himself how to write a fiction piece of storytelling.
