'This exquisite art book of Peter Brew-Bevan's portrait photography is as much about how he arrived at the final result of these stunning studio portraits as it is about the finished works. It is all about getting on camera the subtext of the sitter.' - Barry Otto Shoot: Studio Sessions presents over 40 celebrity portraits by internationally acclaimed Australian photographer Peter Brew-Bevan, together with the stories of their creation, as conceived and recorded in Peter's personal working journals. Shoot is more than a collection of timelessly beautiful, covetable images reproduced and designed to a quality that makes this publication an artwork in itself. By including facsimile journal pages for each major portrait, this remarkable, many-layered book opens a window into the technical, creative and emotional processes behind a master portrait photographer's work. The logistics of lighting, propping, set-up, makeup and styling are revealed, the limitations and frustrations of access time are noted and the critical need for communication and collaboration between photographer and subject is clear. This must all be skilfully and sensitively drawn together to produce finished images of seemingly effortless beauty.
