PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

Straight from the AW16 run­ways, quite lit­er­ally, Terrey was on hand to snap the lux­ury la­bels’ take on the win­ter coat. Wrap up warm and see for your­self on p100.

FIRST UP, DO YOU HAVE A DE­CENT WIN­TER COAT?

I have a Saint Lau­rent trench that’s been mock­ing me all sum­mer.

SHAME. HOW DID YOU GET INTO PHOTOGRAPHY?

I first gained an in­ter­est from shoot­ing the yacht races while sail­ing with my Dad in Sydney when I was about 16.

WHERE DO YOU DRAW IN­SPI­RA­TION FOR A SHOOT?

I am of­ten in­spired by the work of Beethoven. The dog, not the com­poser.

WHEN YOU STARTED OUT, WHAT GOALS DID YOU SET?

Goals change quickly but, for the most part, the over­all aim has al­ways been to work con­stantly on im­prov­ing.

WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?

There are many great as­pects to it but po­ten­tially the best is the travel. I re­cently had an amaz­ing job that took us to 10 dif­fer­ent coun­ties in five days. We shot al­most 24/7, sleep­ing on short flights, with no ho­tels. That and the se­cret pho­tog­ra­phers’ so­ci­ety par­ties. But I can’t talk about them. Mostly be­cause they don’t ex­ist. Or do they?

ANY ODD SUPERSTITIONS YOU’RE HAPPY TO SHARE?

I’m pretty sure the moon is just the other side of the sun and the gov­ern­ment is run by lizard peo­ple but that’s all com­mon knowl­edge, right?
