Portrait of Author Jilly Cooper at her home In Gloucestershire.
Commissioned by The Daily Telegraph she was due to be honoured in the New Years honours list.
As press photographer one needs to be ready to tackle any commissions at any time.
in this case a call from the picture desk saw me travelling to the location and meeting up within the hour.
Jilly was a fabulous sitter and gave men the time to try 3 or 4 different ideas and locations.
This was the picture that was published in the paper and was my favourite from the shoot.
