Sir John Lavery
Earlier this spring I took John Lavery's author photo for his novel 'Sandra Beck'. Prior to the shoot I did some research and discovered another famous "John Lavery" in history. In this case I came across Sir John Lavery, the Irish painter. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lavery)
After we got the head shots we were after, I took John into his kitchen for an impromptu portrait as an homage to the John Lavery and Ramsay MacDonald painting. You know a MacDonald-does-Lavery-doing-Lavery-doing-MacDonald kind of thing... Anyway, here is the result.
(James) Ramsay MacDonald by Sir John Lavery
