Sam’s Last Shoot – For Harper’s Bazaar – Sydney December 2006

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

The last time Sam stood behind a camera (in a professional capacity) was December 2006 in Sydney for Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s Spring 2007 10th anniversary issue. It was less than a month after his 80th’s birthday. After this he launched into the ‘Fashion Etcetera’ project which launched in 2009.

Apart from anything else this shoot was also a master class in lighting. Fortunately there was a young Australian assistant there who realised what he was witnessing. Christopher Ireland mentioned the shoot on his Facebook wall last week.

I had worked at the time with numerous international fashion photographers. Sam was by far the best – I was transfixed by his talent. It was a life changing moment and I often cite this moment when people ask me where I get my enthusiasm and passion.

*Sam was 80 not 82 on that shoot and it was 4 years ago.

Of course Sam was unhappy with the results. But the work speaks for itself. It was also the one and only time he worked with a digital camera on a professional shoot and he loved it.

The Opening I Missed

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Not only did I miss the friends and family opening on September 19th, the day of my stroke, I also missed the sponsor's party on September 24th, my second last day in hospital. However, Ludwig arranged for a small group of visitors to visit me in my room at St Vincent's while the party was in progress. After my first shower in a week and free of hospital gown and IV drip plumbing, it was joy to welcome them - especially Mary McFadden who is a dear and loyal old friend from our days in Johannesburg.

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

In the course of producing my new book 'Fashion Etcetera' we ended up with a long short list, retouching and rejecting a volume of images almost equal to those that made it into the final book which contains 177 colour images and 114 black and whites.
