Tim Andrews by Rebecca Tun: a portrait session

I photographed Tim Andrews the other day. These are some of the pictures, and here’s Tim latest blog post where he has written all about it.

self-styled character portraits

funny…just saw that in 2014, I’d said that the reason I didn’t attempt a lot of self-portraits was because I was the one person that I was least in a position to take a photo of. (in just a small note about a selfie.) now, the (improvement and fine-tuning of the) selfie camera on phones has not only made this no longer the case, but it’s almost made the opposite true – at least concerning head and shoulders portraits. we may now be our own most accessible subjects.

“the plan was simple, just walk around the centre of Bristol and react and shoot what we find. […] Rebecca is a truly awesome model to work with, i just love her looks, she always look like she has something to say and you want to listen.”

just a small note about a selfie

self portrait IV - in which the model takes a self-portrait

…this diptych has been getting some attention recently: “self portrait IV – in which the model takes a self-portrait” – one of the very few self-portraits I ever attempted. A number of people have asked me why I don’t do self portraits habitually, being both a model and a photog. The simple answer is I don’t really know how to point the camera in the right direction or focus correctly. I have seen some amazingly impressive, immaculately styled and conceptualized selfie projects by profesh models, and I think in future I will leave it to the experts. I’m pretty much the one person in the world whom I’m NOT in a good position to take a picture of, logistically speaking. I hope that answers the question.


a splash of colours from sister Auntie Debby

One of my mini sisters, Auntie Debby, is a budding talented artist. In what seems to have been a rapid burst of creative inspiration she recently produced a series of portraits based on photographs, four of which were of me. I love her joyfully liberal yet totally spot-on colour placement and application. And she’s only 15. Such fun! Continue reading


some flies like a breath of fresh air

I made a fleeting visit back to Blighty in March, so I took the opportunity to take some new portraits of my original and perpetual muses, who provide one of the ideal types of modelling demeanour for me – i.e. no small degree of reluctance, mitigated by good humour.

an impromptu collaboration

I spent the day shooting Vincent Littlehat at my apartment in Berlin. Well it was only going to be a 2-hour shoot but instead we worked together until both our brains were aesthetically exhausted, plus she convinced me to get my modelling hat on as well and we did some teamwork.

what are the rules?

I think i’m quite at Cambridge…

Hearing music with subtitles on “I’m Mister Coffee” with Martin Luther King’s “I have a bath”. Too utopian perhaps, but on the toilet I’m going to be prepared to meet inspiration halfway.

portraiture with Andreas Neubauer

Last March, I hitched a ride to Munich to be photographed by Andreas Neubauer. I say ‘be photographed by’ rather than ‘shoot with’ or ‘model for’, because this time the whole thing really felt more like he was taking my portrait. Maybe I was modelling as myself.
