This was part of a series for Barossa Mag. I deliberately shot with lots of headroom hoping for a cover, leaving extra room for the masthead. It ended up as a cover.

I’d heard Stuart speak publicly before and he’s got a great dry sense of humour so I wanted to juxtapose his deadpan look with something a bit out there. I couldn’t have asked for a better subject. He totally accepted what I wanted to do 100% and just did what I asked him. I was really happy with the results.
