Sir John Mortimer from the archives.

From the archives. Sir John Mortimer, English barrister, dramatist, screenwriter and author, his best known novels are about a barrister named Horace Rumpole. These kinds of promo photo shoots were taken while the sitter was in town promoting an event of some kind. I would attend with a journalist who would be chatting with the subject. It would take place in a hotel room and sometimes there would be no time to take the sitter somewhere more interesting. Looking at the negs from this shoot I note there are no ‘set up’ shots at the end so we must have ran out of time. Still I got plenty of nice shots during the interview and this is the photograph the paper chose to publish #edinburghphotographer #edinburghphotography #scotlandphotography #scotlandphotographer #portraitphotography #portraitphotographer #headshots #headshotphotographer #headshotphotography
