Brighton Science Festival Founder Portraits
I've been very fortunate to meet Brighton Science Festival Founder Richard Robinson twice now and to take his portrait on two separate occasions about a year apart. Both times I was amused and entertained by Richard as he told stories / tales / facts / jokes etc.
It's funny how someones mood can influence a portrait. The first time that I met Richard he was in a really good mood and the main impression that I got from him was of a mad eccentric English scientist so I think that came across in the portrait (the bottom shot). However the second time, Richard was recovering from an illness so was more subdued and although still entertaining, he was a bit calmer and again, I think that came across in the portrait.
I managed to take my family along to this years Brighton Science Festival and we had a fantastic time there with the kids getting really stuck in. So until next year Richard and whatever mood you are in, it will be a pleasure to hopefully take your portrait yet again.
