Jarvis Cocker Portrait

Jarvis Cocker Portrait

A portrait of Jarvis Cocker taken in 2011. Whilst driving to a shoot this week, Leon who was assisting me that day  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. Different jobs are enjoyable for totally different reasons.

I was reminded of the portrait above, which I'm 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.
