UNIQUE PHOTOGRAPHER: See a famous face in Hemel through amazing photos 

 Published on: 11th September 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

There is always a sense of excitement when you find yourself at a destination you find somewhat familiar, whether you’ve seen it on the big screen or on your telly at home. 

It’s the feeling of reliving the moment of an iconic scene you know and love.

This is something Brunel University film student, Thomas Duke, enjoys experiencing and capturing. 

From the Lincoln Memorial steps where Martin Luther King delivered his memorable and inspiring “I have a dream” speech, to the Old Town in Hemel Hempstead where the Ricky Gervais original Netflix series, After Life, was filmed. 

Speaking to HemelNews, Thomas said: “I’ve always loved film since I was little, and I love travelling so being able to incorporate my two favourite things is great. 

“I wanted to do After Life because I’ve always been a fan of Ricky Gervais and especially this series, it was deeply moving and sad, yet a wonderful depiction of life with all its ups and downs.

“I wanted to visit some of the filming locations to celebrate the show and the start of the next series. It was a joy to visit these places, especially the Hive coffee shop where they shot the funny fish fingers scene, they were so lovely.”

Having only posted his first Instagram photo less than two years ago, Thomas has gone from 800 followers to almost 80,000 in a year and is still growing.
