Mostly, I don’t subscribe to photographers taking pictures of themselves in mirrors. It always strikes me as a bit of a Cliché . I make an exception in this case because this image has a certain, joie de vivre about it and also because in this picture are two of  my long time friends and two of Australia’s most accomplished and renowned photojournalists, Stephen Dupont (above me) and David dare Parker (standing at right). It was taken sometime in the late nineties at Sydney’s Lunar Park.

Wind-On

I made this picture as I was advancing the film while loading the camera and shooting the shutter. Photographers often refer to images like this (taken by accident while loading

their cameras) as ‘wind-ons’.
