GQ (Australia) - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

How was Jack­man as a sub­ject?

Hugh is al­ways a com­plete gen­tle­men; easy go­ing, re­laxed. Ul­ti­mate pro­fes­sional.

Favourite movie star­ring him?

Pris­on­ers.

Is it more or less of a chal­lenge shoot­ing some­one so fa­mil­iar to the pub­lic?

It all de­pends on the tal­ent. I al­ways have a place to be­gin to build from. I like to keep it light and fun on set which usu­ally brings out great mo­ments to cap­ture.

Your first book was in 2000, what are some of the big­gest changes in photography over the past 20 years?

The switch from film to dig­i­tal opened up the pro­fes­sion and world of photography to every­one. So­cial me­dia and cam­era phones have en­abled a lot of peo­ple to dis­cover a tal­ent they didn’t know about.

As an Aussie liv­ing in the US, what do you miss about home?

The weather, the beaches, the laid-back vibe and of course my friends.

Is there any­one you haven’t worked with yet who’s on your bucket list?

I’ve had so many great ex­pe­ri­ences with peo­ple that I’ve worked with. I’m just happy to be work­ing ac­tively as a photographer.
