Kirsty Wark portraits

Got a commission to photograph Kirsty Wark for a big glossy mag, now my only perception of Kirsty was the one from Newsnight, and to be honest she comes across a bit scary I mean I wouldn’t ant to be on the end of on of her interviews!
So her PA phoned to arrange a time, she is free next Tuesday at 7.30 she has a few errands to run but will be back for 7.30 perfect 7.30pm it is! No I mean AM…… long lie for me, who has errands to run that early.

So turned up a this fantastic Victorian house in the west end of Glasgow just as the make-up girl was arriving which gave me plenty of time to set up some lights and have a nice chat over a coffee with Kirsty. Turned out all my fears were misplaced (as usual all is not true in TV land) she couldn’t have been nicer even that early in the morning, made me some fresh coffee and toast then we got started, I had to be finished by 9.30am so during the make-up I reccied the kitchen (as it was a feature for her appearance on celebrity Master chef) I decided on a few different setups.

A few weeks later when the magazine came out I received a lovely email from Kirsty thanking me for a great set of pictures.
