Oh man, I've loved Janelle Monae's incredible look and wonderfully fun but cool music for what feels like an age, and then BOOM in walks the opportunity to shoot her for The Fly magazine. JJ the editor flagged it up and I was all over it from the off, obviously. The greatest aspect for me was working out and then selling in the idea of this image to her team (the inspiration behind it being a combination of the iconography of Elvis, Charlie Chaplin and MJ) and once they were onside we were away. We had 90 mins including interview, video piece and 3 stills set ups, so time was tight but Janelle (best person in the world, fact) nailed it in no time. You can probably tell I loved it and I hope the shots above illustrate this. Loads of thanks to Tom Bunning and Tom Sharp for their kind assistance in producing my bit.
