Portrait of Louise Casey

Louise Casey

I was commissioned to photograph the woman who is leading the government’s troubled family’s team, Louise Casey. The pictures of her being interviewed came out well due to the light streaming in from the window behind her, and the fact that she was very animated and unconscious.

She said she could talk for hours about what she’s passionate about, to which I replied I could do the same on the subject of photography.
When it came to taking the posed shots for which I had scouted a location earlier, my lens decided to send cryptic messages to my camera, to the tune of error message. I got flustered and took it straight down to the camera doctor soon after, but I’m pleased that I got at least one shot that I’m happy with, particularly the playful nature of the colourful sculpture contrasted with her serious expression.
