Couple – Johnny and Richard | Blairgowrie

I met and became friends with Richard at his coffee shop Citizen Cafe on Conrad Avenue in Blairgowrie (my home and office away from home). When he saw my Valentines Day competition to win your dream couple shoot he came up with a Dali inspired shoot with randomness being the key factor.  Rich asked me to do the shoot anyway as a Valentines Day shoot.

Johnny and Richard have a magnificent house filled with beautiful, modern, colourful pieces that I am very envious of. The shoot was filled with laughter – from shouting at each other with a megaphone to balancing apples on Johnny’s head and eventually to throwing buckets of water onto each other on an abandoned tennis court. I loved every minute of it – it was laughter and stretched my mind and imagination so much which I loved!

Thanks Rich and John for a fabulous afternoon
