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.
