A team of “happy snappers” from my class at uni. worked during the Virgin Australia Fashion Festival week supplying images for www.voxfrock.com.au and theloupe.org. Many thanks, great work. More can be viewed at the VAMFF tag below.
Way back in 1977 Bryan Ferry asked to use a photograph of mine on this L.P.record cover.I gave permission although strangely never got round to billing his management (we were in the throes of moving to Melbourne).
I see on the Bryan Ferry official website they’re selling signed prints of my image for over a $1000 ! I’m happy for him but this can’t be right!
Another weird thing, in 2007 Tiga, a DJ, borrowed the sleeve design for his L.P. ‘Sexor’. This won the Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year.
Others have liked it.
Bryan sometimes uses out-takes.
Meanwhile the 1977 early”selfie” below is my original test pic. I’d shown this to Bryan and he asked me to use the same lighting for a photograph of him. Did a quick couple of rolls on the Hasselblad and gave him the film.
