I’d been looking forward to doing this shoot with Dave for a couple of weeks, if not months now, till finally we were able to organize and get out shooting.
As an old friend and collaborator, we’d dreamed up some notions of doing him up a set of nice “author shots” to help in promoting his terrific new novel The Hunt for Pierre Jnr, just recently released to bookshops, electronic and brick.
We were thinking along the lines of a shot where he’d just be in an environment, not the feature so much, as the scene would be one hopefully somewhat hard to place in time, expansive and “impressive”.
He’d also be utilizing his Queue, a device popular in the future.
This was a fun shoot, just the two of us and the equipment in this old abandoned lifestyle showroom. I’d been here before and knowing what to expect made for a pretty straightforward affair. We tried three different views of the space, but this’ the best I’d say, made by the lines of light spilling in through the windows.
