Tall in stature, quiet by nature and armed with an ever-expanding portfolio, Liam MF Warwick is a long time Clash collaborator whose lens this year took on Gary Barlow, Mac Miller and John Legend, plus several of our favourite main fashion stories.
Last week his friend sent him this photo of a Rossetti piece on sale in a Cork gallery, and now it’s top of his list for inspiring sights. So now you know.
The day job: Photographer.
The reason: I have always been interested in imagery, my brother bought me my first camera and I just started taking portraits. I guess when I started taking control over how the subject (usually a family member at the time) looked and were presented, my idea of image making kind of grew from there.
Clash connection: This year for Clash I shot quite a few things; Mac Miller cover, John Legend, Johnny Flynn, John Newman, Gary Barlow and for the latest issue John Goodman (seems like a lot Johns).
2013 highlight: For Clash, probably John Legend... I remember my high school days listening to ‘Ordinary People’.
Ideal stocking filler: A new pair of sneakers, books – maybe ‘Not in Fashion: Photography & Fashion in the 90's’ – and a nice new iMac; but I might have to buy the iMac myself.
Waving goodbye to 2013 to: Probably Britney, ‘Alien’.
Hopes and dreams for 2014: To build on my working relationships, keep busy and to continue to grow with my work.
