The First Time

 

[cp_dropcaps]A[/cp_dropcaps] portrait of Jarvis Cocker taken in 2011. Whilst driving to a shoot this week my assistant, Leon, asked if I had a favourite ever job.  It's a hard question to answer because much like a favourite song or movie there's too many options to give a definitive answer.

I was however reminded of the portrait above, which I've dug out of the archives and I'm still extremely fond of. I'm a huge Pulp fan and having the opportunity to photograph Mr Jarvis will always be a career highlight. There are various achievements and milestones that every photographer reaches as they climb the career ladder and this shoot is for me certainly one of them.
