Miriam Margolyes portrait

Miriam Margolyes recently read some extracts from Barbara Pym novels in the library at St. Hilda’s University in Oxford and I was booked to get a photograph of her in action and then take her portrait. The reading itself was superb and opened my eyes to the novelist Barbara Pym – the 20th Century novelist widely regarded as an overlooked great. The event was put on in close collaboration with the Barbara Pym society which is a very active and passionate organisation. After the reading I had about a minute to do the portrait but had completed an extensive reconnaissance mission earlier and was able to get her into position super quick. I used uplighting to accentuate her theatric demeanour. Click click
