Tilly Lloyd profile

In the current (March 2014) issue of FishHead Magazine is a profile of Tilly Lloyd, owner of Unity Books in Wellington. This coincides with Writers Week, part of the New Zealand Festival. It was a great opportunity to meet a Wellington icon in person and also shoot in Unity again. Last time we did a video interview with Kate De Goldi about the changing state of the industry with eBooks going mainstream.

I really enjoyed this process of photographing prior, during and after the interview which took place in the shop, with people milling around reading. I kept my camera in quiet mode so as not to disturb customers and shot using natural light. It’s really fun keeping the pace flowing naturally and letting moments happen naturally for portraits.
