PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

We kept Syd­ney pho­tog­ra­pher Gra­ham busy, shoot­ing with ev­ery­one from muso Troye Si­van to crick­et­ing leg­end Michael Clarke and su­per­model David Gandy. “We ended up do­ing enough images to fill the whole is­sue,” says Gra­ham of the pho­to­genic Brit (p122).

SO, WHAT WAS HE LIKE?

Hand­some, pro­fes­sional, re­spon­sive and po­lite. De­spite the jet­lag af­ter the long-haul flight, he was fo­cused and en­er­getic. His range of move­ment and ex­pres­sion was pretty incredible, and he was one of the sex­i­est peo­ple I have ever pho­tographed. It was a lot of fun.

YOU’VE BEEN SHOOT­ING IN­SIDE AND OUT THIS IS­SUE. ANY PREF­ER­ENCE?

Out­side is more chal­leng­ing as you have to deal with the el­e­ments, the gen­eral pub­lic and the harsh Aus­tralian sun.

BEST SLIP, SLOP, SLAP, FOLKS. ANY AD­VICE FOR GET­TING INTO PHO­TOG­RA­PHY?

Take it one step at a time, start on ana­logue to learn the ba­sics, and as­sist with some­one for as long as you can. There’s a lot of com­pe­ti­tion, so don’t go into it think­ing it’s a hobby. It’s a cut­throat world out there.

HOW DO YOU GET PEO­PLE TO RE­LAX, IF THEY’RE SLIGHTLY CAM­ERA SHY?

Learn a few things about your sub­ject be­fore­hand, so you know what to ex­pect. I’ve al­ways found a bit of mu­sic, or wine, helps on set.
