It was initially my full intention to give you all the real answer, but after reading all of these replies (which, thank you for, wow, so many great comments), I have concluded that the air of mystery and the magic win the day. Thank you all, my friends.

At the Point. This is the fourth of five double page spreads published recently in SALYSÉ magazine. Today I would like to give a special shout out to Oakland-based stylist Pharoah Brand who I have had the honour of working with a dozen or so times since I first met him in January. He has a great eye for pulling wardrobe pieces together, he has a great network of models, make up and hair stylists, and he is a gentle and generous soul who I love working with. Check more of his work out on instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/pharoahbrand/

Rich in Colour, Worth More than Gold
I was recently commissioned to shoot these beautiful gold-foiled t-shirt designs for Melanaire http://melanininc.com/

Story
Tagline
Art. Photography. Creativity.
Introduction
I am an English-born digital artist and photographer now living in the San Francisco Bay Area. On G+ I have discovered a magical community who have formed around the art of photography. 

I help run a Community called Brain to Frame that focuses on how to create conceptual photographic imagery all the way from initiating an idea to producing the end result.





Bragging rights
I'm a Brit. We are self deprecating instead.
