President of the Law Society

 

Lucy Scott-Moncrieff

It was an enjoyable experience photographing an individual in the law industry who is as colourful as her snow globe collection suggests.

Lucy Scott-Moncrieff was the President of the Law Society for the year 2012-13. I photographed her at the end of her term reviewing her year in office.

Prior to this assignment, I knew she was a colourful character from a sighting of her at London Pride march surrounded by leather-clad stilt-walkers with their bottoms exposed.

But when I arrived in her office I was overjoyed to see that it was  littered with souvenirs which had been collected from worldwide trips carried out on duty: a mask from the Brazilian Law Society, a Canadian moose head (made from wire). And then came the snow globes, collected from every country she had passed through in the year.

I chose the above picture to show because it depicts Lucy’s commitment to her role, while also revealing the fun side to her character with her collected artefacts in the background. Another picture of Lucy Scott-Moncrieff can be found in my gallery with other exceptional editorial portraits
