PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

Shot at Sandown Race­way with Aussie model Jar­rod Scott, Ter­rey said of our fash­ion story (p184): “It went well, even though it poured with rain from the mo­ment we ar­rived, un­til the time we left – when it cru­elly stopped.”

WHAT WAS SCOTT LIKE TO WORK WITH?

Great – he never once said that he was both­ered by the rain. Though it’s a lit­tle soul-de­stroy­ing to watch some­one get soaked from head to toe, and still be the best look­ing dude on the planet.

ANY PHO­TOG­RA­PHY TIPS?

Con­sider what you’re try­ing to achieve be­fore putting the cam­era to your eye. Work out what you want to shoot and how, then you’ll al­ready know what you want from the photo, and the rest will fall into place.

AND POINT­ERS FOR LOOK­ING GOOD IN PIC­TURES?

Con­fi­dence – you can see it in a per­son’s face if they’re not feel­ing it. But the most im­por­tant thing is not to take your­self too se­ri­ously. On set we of­ten take se­ri­ous-look­ing shots, but we’re usu­ally hav­ing fun. Some of the best shots come from can­did mo­ments.

ANY­THING TO AVOID?

There’s noth­ing wrong with mak­ing mis­takes, as long as you learn from them. Re­mem­ber to take the lens cap off be­fore shoot­ing – but then again, I still do that a lot.

FAVOURITE PHO­TOG­RA­PHERS?

Like most fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phers, Peter Lind­bergh is a reg­u­lar in­spi­ra­tion. I also love Vin­cent van de Wi­jn­gaard’s work. Both have a cin­e­matic ap­proach to beauty that’s hard to repli­cate.
