What is sexy about you? An easy laugh.
What is your worst habit? Too much Radio 4 when I should be working….
What is your most memorable fashion mistake? Not realizing what a hot bod I had when I was 20 and dressing it accordingly. Those baggy trousers and sweatshirts still haunt me…
What do you want to be remembered for? I only expect to be remembered by those I love. And I hope they just remember me for a little while anyway…
If you could trade lives with someone, who would it be and why? David Attenborough’s life has been and still is one of exploration, fascination and inspiration. If I could just manage a quater of what he achieves I would be happiest photographer in London!
What’s the quickest route to your heart? My husband found it at the bottom of a cheap bottle of whisky and a night time stroll over waterloo bridge….
What makes you angry? The horrifically low rape convictions we have.
What was the last film you saw and give a quick review: Let The Right One In by Tomas Alfredson. It’s a beautiful Swedish film about two kids meeting on a snow cover lonely housing estate, except the little girl just happens to be a vampire. The photography is beautiful, the pace considered and slow and the performances intimate and thoughtful. LOVED IT!
What is your secret weapon? Eyeliner
When are you the most happy? Over eating and over drinking in the vineyards over looking Vienna in the evening sun.
