My second editorial photography job for Hong Kong based business magazine A Plus, was photograping Jessica Fries, Executive Chairman of ‘Accounting for Sustainability’, a charity established by Prince Charles to ‘inspire action to drive a fundamental shift towards resilient business models and a sustainable economy’. The office is in Clarence House, London, a Royal Palace. Understandably, there was considerable security rigmarole to get through, a long non-disclosure agreement to sign and a strict condition that I couldn’t photograph any pictures of the Royal family, or show the garden in any of the pictures. I had a look at the garden, but obviously can’t disclose what I saw….
Jessica was a delight to photograph, a lovely person and very amenable to walking around looking for good locations, and it’s still a thrill to my work in a magazine….
