Paul Dempsey backstage before performing at the Art Gallery of WA.

It was by chance that I took this photo. I arrived to collect my media pass to photograph Paul’s show, and the ladies at The Art Gallery assumed I was there to get a backstage portrait of Paul. I just went along with it, got introduced, and he asked me what I wanted him to do. I hadn’t thought of that, so I just asked him to relax in the middle of the couch.


I was at the Art Gallery this week and was informed that the shoot was in fact pre-arranged. Glad to see people are reading my blog 🙂 I wish I had known I was taking a portrait earlier, I would have actually shaved.

This photo was taken 2 years ago, almost to the day.
