Samuel L. Jackson, 2001.Degrees Project

It was shot on Rodeo Drive at Samuel's publicist. To this day I have never understood why they flew me to LA from London to shoot Samuel who was doing the shoot on his way to the airport to fly to London. It was instantaneous the minute Samuel entered the building. The atmosphere lifted as he addressed every member of staff on his way through the building. You could also not miss him with his bright orange cap, tshirt and green shorts. I got the measure of Samuel very quickly when he insisted on making a phone call before the shoot. Only to inform me he needed a new suit and so was sending flowers to his tailor's wife for his troubles. After a quick wardrobe change we began shooting. Samuel being a busy man was on his phone. Yet this did not stop him giving me what I wanted while he chatted on loud speaker between shots. And by the time his call had ended the shoot was a wrap and it all had been done on an office swivel chair. Samuel oozes charm and coolness. He has a wonderful ability to make you feel good about yourself, it's a real privilege to be in his company.
