A bit of history:

In 1978 I had a photography studio in the old manor at Bray Studios. Out on the lot was a large workshop full of guys building what looked like the biggest Airfix kit in world. One day in the bar Nick Allder asked me to take some photographs of a rig he was building and so I became "unofficial" stills photographer for the miniature special effects unit for Ridley Scotts "Alien". (Unofficial as I had no union "ticket"). The photographs of Nostromo, the landing gear and Narcissus in The Book of Alien are all mine. In 2009 Dennis Lowe and Jon Sorensen contacted me from out of the blue, "do you remember....?" and indeed I did remember them and the rest of the crew and a very happy and interesting part of my life. I dug around in some old files and found that I still had some prints and transparencies, you can see these below and on Dennis Lowe's site. So far as I am aware, these photographs are unseen and unique.

I have made high resolution scans from these images and am offering a series of limited edition prints here.
