Cherry Potts contacted me after seeing my advert on the Arts Jobs listings page – which has turned out to be a great advert as I’ve had alot of interest from it.
Inspired by fairy tales, Cherry is a published author & editor at Arachne Press, the latest book is ‘Weird Lies.’
For the portrait Cherry brought along with her some of her works to hold. Who knew there were so many ways to hold a book. It wasn’t until near the end of the shoot I told Cherry to relax as we talked, so she put the pile of books into the most comfortable position, and I got the shot.
Journalist and blogger @TerribleLadyGay saw a post of mine on the Arts Council job listings page and got in touch. She is also Arts Editor for ‘Vada Magazine’– an online LGBT magazine.
Naturally I asked TLG to pose with her trusty notepad she uses for notes and in meetings – this came in handy also, as afterwards we talked about the project for a feature on the arts page of Vada online.
Talking about the project made me think about how others perceive it and who would get most out of the concept.
