Yo Ho Ho
Ten days ago Nathan Evans had been a postman. Now he had a viral video, a single racing up the charts and a deal with one of the worlds biggest record companies, Polydor Records.
I was asked to shoot the Polydor Records official promo images that would introduce Nathan to the world. The first of two shoots was environmental, we worked on a freezing beach on Scotland’s East Coast observing all the covid safety guidelines and chatting with the passers-by who recognised him from any number of TV appearances.
Nathan was an absolute trooper working with total enthusiasm in the face of less than comfortable conditions.
The second shoot was in a slightly warmer studio in Edinburgh. Again Nathan worked tirelessly for hours taking direction like a seasoned pro, serenading us and playing his guitar while we set up different backgrounds.
This was the perfect storm of portraits for me. To be able to cover studio and environmental with the luxury of time made for a very relaxed shoot. Happy me, happy team, happy days.
