Any Dietary Restrictions?
This project required that I bring all of my experiences and skill sets to the table, and then asked me to up it a notch. The Guardian Weekend magazine was doing an excerpt from Rebecca Harrington‘s new book Iâll Have What Sheâs Having: My Adventures in Celebrity Dieting and wanted to photograph her as three iconic personalities. A few names were tossed around but when Picture Editor Caroline Hunter mentioned âKarl Lagerfeldâ I was hooked.
The budget was modest so we had to be smart and creative in our approach (and we shot at my New York apt to save on location fees!). Luckily two top people from my usual production team stepped up to help, Sacha Harford, make-up & hair stylist extraordinaire, and Ise Michelle White, a fantastic wardrobe stylist.
