I’ve only photographed three people that specifically stated that they didn’t want any retouching doing at all, no make-up, no digital, nothing.
One was Jude Law, one was Casey Affleck and the other was Heath Ledger.
I don’t suppose it matters at all really. It’s just one of those stupid things that stick in my mind.
Heath was lovely and it was great just messing about with him for a day. Most of these pictures were taken walking between locations, they really are moments between portraits – the staged moments were rubbish.
Just the way it goes sometimes.
