Paris

working in Paris, it’s such an elegant city, the architecture is so beautiful and whether we’re taking pictures or I’m writing there’s always a sense of the great talent which walked before you, the city’s just steeped in culture. I’m lucky to be here quite often with my beloved and I just adore it, even though it’s becoming noticeably  more run down in places,  and has some obvious troubles, Paris is always beautiful.

On this southern stretch of Spain you can see Africa and there’s something so beautiful about looking over to the continent.

I love Spain because it’s wild and passionate and free and nature here is inspiring. I’m lucky to get to hang out here quite a bit, with the man I love too and having fun taking photos. Although we had a big argument on the way to this shoot, as I was quite nervous and lacking in confidence but I found my centre when we arrived at the sea. The beach is chilled out-of-season, it has a fun atmosphere as it’s a nudist beach further along and everyone’s pretty relaxed.

London at Night

London is such fun to wander around at night as there’s always so much going on – the diversity and fusion of cultures make it such a vibrant and inspirational place to be, it’s a canvas for street photography. There’s often a drama on the night bus, usually highly entertaining, but this journey is chilled and Jac’s lens captures a beautiful light which flatters the scene in every sense. We go to Soho for neon, historically London’s centre for prostitution, media and, more recently, the gay community it’s a shame the council’s knocking the character out of the area.

After the billboard shoot, full of excitement, I drive to Paris with my friend Carlos and as we’re leaving Jac gives me the flowers. By the time he arrives in town the blooms are pretty dried out but we love the way they look, so we make them star in an metaphorical series of photos on the métro – why is this woman wandering around with dead flowers?

Jac’s doing an illustration for The Economist newspaper, except they forget to tell him and just as we’re walking into the subway he gets a call from his frantic colleague asking where his picture is – the deadline is just hours away so we rush back to the studio and he works in rapid time, he’s brilliant, he creates an image which normally takes 2 days in under 2 hours – then we dash back to shoot about midnight and sneak in to the métro just as it’s closing!

I guess it’s part of the package, hanging out with a photographer…

I’m  reluctant  but Jac’s really keen and so here is our first ever photo shoot and joint creative enterprise. (We met on a dating site a few weeks earlier. )   Hilariously, my foray into stock shot photography debuts on Getty Images as “Anxious mature woman dressed in bubble wrap” – the things I do to support my writing (and to please a new date!).
