George Brandis photographed for Sydney Morning Herald

One of the commissions I did for Sydney Morning Herald was a short session during lunch interview that Latika Bourke held With George Brandis. The lunch took place at Spring restaurant, at Somerset House. As previously, I had only about 10 minutes to capture a portrait during the interview. As they were both sitting against a bright window, I though of using a flash to fill in some light and balance the countre -jour that was created by the window. As soon as I started snapping, one of the waiters came to me and told me I can not use the flash inside the restaurant! This is just one of the many unpredictable situation I find myself in when I don’t have control over the entire process. However, I still enjoy coming up with solutions at location and later on during editing process. Here are a few photos from the day.
