Probably my very favourite album cover.

We were aware we were shooting for an album called 'Lonely One' so I used it as an excuse to relocate to the southernmost tip of the Australian mainland.

I had an arty idea of Kevin standing alone on a remote beach, lit with a balanced brolly flash.

It involved quite a bit of gear, and the thing that stands out to me was Kevin's attitude.

Well, there was only the two of us, and Kevin was dressed for the shoot, but I had all this equipment to cart.

Next thing I know Kevin's picked up a bunch of this stuff and has set off over the sand dunes.

No preciousness here, just: 'the job's gotta be done!'

Despite me bringing along some 35mm gear and some colour infra red film and a full-frame fisheye lens we got to the location with plenty of time to kill, so I showed Kevin how to use the fisheye and we just mucked around a bit.

I had the film processed the wrong way and it 'reticulated' in a totally, unexpected manner.

When we reviewed the photos we had a new front cover.
