Last night I had the immense pleasure of photographing a young man whose prospects as a popular singer are certainly very high. I have no doubt regarding his potential in the world of popular music. His name is Bobby, and he is only 15. However, even at this young age he has gained a following here, and overseas.
He is a student of Susie Ahern, who has worked as singing coach on X-Factor and Australian Idol and has taught and coached some of Australia's most well known singers and performers. Susie asked me to take some publicity and promotional images of Bobby and I was very happy to do so.
Bobby is a delightful young man - typically teenage but with a sense of confidence and humour a little beyond his years. He was easy to photograph and understood the concepts we were working through very well. I hope that as his following increases along with his fame he will remember the photographer who captured him when he was on his way. I think I would like to photograph a world tour - ok Bobby?
