Last year i received a phone call asking if i'd be available to photograph Barry Humphries and obviously my answer was some swear words and a huge YES! Mr Humphries is the Artistic Director for the 2015 Adelaide Cabaret Festival and my job was to photograph his portrait and behind the scenes during the filming of the Cabaret TVC. Was it fun? Yes! Barry is a legend and very very funny and with a crew of about 20 or so people laughing all day, i'll leave it to your imagination.
Amongst other things we chatted about Italian food and there was a period when i think he seriously considered my invitation to dinner at my parents house for mum's cooking. Just imagine that...
telephone rings… "hello Ma…!"
Thanks Adelaide Festival Centre for having me as your photographer for the day and thankyou Mr Humphries, it was a pleasure to meet and photograph you. I hope we meet again soon.
