I was having coffee with Mark the art director at Fairfax on a Tuesday morning.
He invited me over to tour the HQ.
I shook hands with the editors of Good Food and she asked if I had any stock shots of dumplings for their cover story.
Knowing that Instagram photos don’t really count, I said no.
While I was leaving the building Mark called and asked if I was available to shoot that afternoon at David’s.
I looked into my bag and saw the Sony A7 with a 35mm lens, remembered I had a meeting at 3pm, and the fact that I hadn’t a clue of the lighting condition at the restaurant.
‘ Yes,’ I said.
‘Can we do it within the next hour though?’
From coffee to dumplings, just like that.
