What a pleasure to be commissioned to produce celebrity portraits of Terry Jones and the art in his home, to illustrate for two different magazine feature articles: in Artists & Illustrators Magazine, and The Publican.
Terry Jones has a ‘photo-face’ that he always pulls when he gets in front of a camera (bit like my brother), that shot in the bag, I wanted more, so squatting down close to the floor to get him from a different angle and re-compose the garden in the background of the frame – he asked me if I was taking a picture of his knees & we both laughed – I captured him with a natural happy face. It was a rare portrait photo of Terry, so I sent a framed print to him as a little thank you present. His PA contacted asking if they could use the image for his fan and PR photo, of course honored and happy to oblige. Terry’s using the photo for his twitter account avatar.
