The many faces of John Bell, Bell Shakespeare rehearsal room, October 2011
John Bell is a legend of Australian theatre and i was so excited to get a chance to shoot him for a feature in Time Out Sydney by Toby Schmitz.
Being an actor and director, i figured John would want some direction, so i respectfully lifted an idea from the photographer Howard Schatz, who does an “In Character" portrait series in every issue of Vanity Fair.
That idea has also inspired Toby Schmitz’s @yourfacegame on twitter. So there was another connection to the story.
John took to it with glee and had me in stitches. One of my favourite shoots in a long time.
