James 'Gordon' Green had a long and distinguished career in the Metropolitan Police. Now retired and very happily married to the lovely Eve (still a serving officer) Gordon unwittingly strolled into my studio during a Sunday Shoot. The couple enjoyed the shoot and ordered prints straight away. A few weeks later I was commissioned by advertising agency Publicis QMP to find and shoot three men for a poster campaign for their client Beamish Stout. When it came to the casting I remembered Gordon. The agency and client agreed he had the 'look' they were after. To cut a long story short Gordon got the gig- we had a very fun shoot-he is a natural- and he can now be seen on billboards all over Ireland. A new career beckons for this ex copper.
