James Andrew - portrait by Nicholas Turner

When WIJW was in its infancy, making posts was a fairly spontaneous affair—with photography being pretty nearly an afterthought. I’d simply be shopping for a client at, say, the Chinese Porcelain Factory or H M Luther, I’d see a piece that aligned with my aesthetic, and out would come a little compact camera to capture the scene. Some of these images were definitely better than others, (thankfully, in a pinch, our own Scott McBee would step in to take the shot, and he did manage to actually capture some rather fine images despite the impromptu circumstances!).

Of course, as things progressed—and WIJW started to garner serious international attention—we began to rely on pro-photographers for many of our shots to create a high quality WIJW experience. Subsequently, now that we’ve been at it for some years, I’ve had the great pleasure to work with quite a few fine artist/photographers. Among our quiver of creatives, I hold Nicholas Turner in high regard. As you can see, we’ve reconnected with him just now to produce this intimate and probing portrait (a touch of Snowdon perhaps?), and I must say I’m rather pleased with the results. Incidentally, Turner is working on his first book project—a photo diary of sorts—with a collection of self portraits. We can’t wait to see the results!

I’m sporting a Tom Ford “Country Jacket” in amethyst wool silk tri-color windowpane, white, gray and black check shirt with French cuffs, vintage moon stone cuff links, gray silk Hermes pocket square, Gucci purple foulard and paisley silk scarf as ascot and my fragrance is Creed Royal-Oud.

    Lovely portrait, one would indeed say a Lord Snowdon shot of English gentry. Kudo’s to Mr. Nicholas Turner!

    Quite a handsome portrait.

    Lovely jacket as well, though I think your tweed Gucci top coat is my personal favorite.
