Photo shoot.

It’s well known that most journalists are fiercely self conscious and I’m no different. I don’t particularly like being photographed, but sometimes it’s good to do things that are a bit scary.

So a recent commission for the Sunday Independent on raw selvedge jeans came up and the editor asked me to get photographed. I’ve never been professionally shot before, so it seemed like a good opportunity. The awesome Fran Veale came out and did his thing, and these were the results.

The copyright in these belongs to The Sunday Independent and Fran but I asked nicely and they’ve let me use a few for online purposes as they’re not really commercial in nature. Thanks guys!
