Photographer Scott Mitchell met Bradley Wiggins back in 2010, with the pair hitting it off pretty much instantly due to their shared passion for scooters, Northern soul and a very particular style of haircut. Just six weeks before the start of the Tour de France, Scott received a Tweet from Bradley asking for his mobile number. His request? “As it turned out, he wanted me to go along to the Tour and photograph what he goes through at the biggest cycling race in the world”. The much-photographed Bradley chose Scott as he wasn’t a sports photographer, and he wanted a new and fresh approach.
Scott has chosen a selection of shots from the past few months that capture some key moments from behind the scenes. His distinctive style has proved so popular that he’s now the official Team Sky photographer and his work can be seen through a series of galleries on their site, as well as on his own blog.
Scott's photographs following Bradley and the team's historic success at this year's Tour de France are still available to view on Team Sky's official site, with a possible book in the pipeline for later this year. In the meantime, he continues to shadow the team across various trips including the current Vuelta a Espana.

It's been a busy year for Blur, with the release of new material Under the Westway and The Puritan and the small matter of a certain closing concert to prepare for. After working on individual projects - ranging from opera to cheese production – the band have regrouped for what may well be one of the most poignant years in their 21 as a band. In celebration, the Londonewcastle Project Space has teamed up with EMI and Spotify to present Blur 21: The Exhibition. The collection of over 70 images follows the band from the release of their debut album Leisure in 1991, with many never-before-seen shots taken by the likes of Penny Smith, Paul Postle and Banksy.

Curated by Dave Brolan, a leading expert on music photography, the exhibition includes shots from the group’s earliest beginnings as ‘Seymour’, through the 1990s and the height of Britpop to their current status as BRIT award winners for their Outstanding Contribution to Music. The varied selection of images includes stage shots, artwork and now iconic portraits, making this a must for fans of the band and Britpop aficionados.
