I had my photo taken today. More than once. In fact, it was a whole photo shoot thing. Spent about an hour with Kate Beatty (left) and Shelley upstairs at the Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath while Kate took my picture.
It’s being used for some exhibition or portfolio of photography that I don’t fully understand, but which appears to be centred around portraits of creative people in Birmingham. Apparently I’m also allowed to use the photos for my own personal ends as well, so there may just be a new Facebook profile picture on the way.
I’ll get to see them in a few days once Kate’s had a bit of time to play with them. I sort of know Kate from around Moseley, and we know a lot of the same people (notably my wife and my PA, who she lives with) – and I get the impression that she’s very good at this sort of thing. Like award-winningly good.
Really looking forward to seeing how these come out. I’ve become comfortable with the fact that I just kind of look like this, so I don’t have too much difficulty with having my photo taken.
I mean – you don’t have to be particularly good looking to have a good photo taken of you…
