The Planner - Marc Vlessing OBE. May cover 2022
I had a fascinating cover shoot in Covent Garden recently for The Planner magazine. It was fascinating because the subject, Marc Vlessing, co-founder of Pocket Living was a bit of a Renaissance man with a background in banking, film producing, theatre and property development. Our conversation included classic furniture design, decor, art and photography. (I’m no Renaissance man by the way - just keeping my head above water) There was too much conversation for a busy shoot, a problem I’ve had before. I once rather stupidly asked the physicist Brian Cox why gravity was so weak. He was so nice and interesting, I could have put the camera away (in a lead box perhaps) and just listened. What to do when the sitters are too interesting? It’s a curse, I know.
