#7 - Julie Bishop - Most influential
Once the decision about who was going to be on the cover had been made by the editorial team we started to organise the photo shoot. This was not easy because the busy schedule of Julie and winter time in Perth.
I was told by my boss that I have to be available 24/7. No problem, I just had to know my circumstances regarding where the photo session will be held. I agreed with Julie's assistant that I choose the place.
Finally, the photo session took place just one week before the deadline, on a Saturday morning.
I recommended the University of WA site whereabout there is a nice arcade and we can shoot anytime regardless how the weather is. It was a really rainy and dark day but I used an off camera flash with 1/2 CTO gel for warming the colours up a bit.
She asked me about the clothes and I told her that wearing something office casual would be the best. That time she changed her hair to a shorter one and that was the very first photo shoot of her with her new hair cut too.
Julie is a really nice person and easy to work with. A few guards were around us and I do keep good memories about the whole photo shoot.
I am very happy that I had the opportunity to work with the Australian Foreign Minister.
