PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

We have Barry to thank for our beau­ti­ful ‘Sur­vival Mode’ (p178) and sexy Brid­get Mal­colm (p164) shoots.

YOU SHOT IN THE COLD OF NEW JERSEY. WHAT WAS THE IN­SPI­RA­TION HERE?

It was the land, it was about a trav­eller liv­ing off the land and all he owned is what was on his back. It was -10ºc that day so it was a chal­lenge, but the whole team loved work­ing in the el­e­ments – that’s when I feel most at home.

HOW WAS BRID­GET MAL­COLM?

Brid­get was great. We’ve worked to­gether be­fore so it wasn’t like we met for the first time, and then I asked her to take her clothes off.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BE­ING A PHO­TOG­RA­PHER?

See­ing ideas come to life. It starts out as a con­cept but when you see it through the cam­era, I get very ex­cited – I love it. Also, work­ing with peo­ple that want the same re­sult and are on the same page, is im­por­tant. It’s all about the pic­ture, not the ego.

WHO’S ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO SHOOT?

Neil Young, Jack White, Buddy Guy. I’m al­ways try­ing to pho­to­graph peo­ple that in­spire me and cap­ture them in a dif­fer­ent way.

ANY OTHER PAS­SIONS THAT MIGHT SUR­PRISE PEO­PLE?

I like wood­work and build­ing things with my hands. We live on five acres so I have a lot of projects to keep me busy ev­ery day.
