Arran Hearn is a friend of mine and this photo in particular is one of my favourite portraits, taken at a party with the laser lights spinning around us, but somehow, by chance, the lights lined up just right on Arran’s hand. He is a big fan of triangles! When he saw the pic he couldn’t believe how well it turned out and I remember him running around showing people! So this photo always makes me smile.
Arran is a Graphic Designer, a DJ and a master of Lego. He creates custom LEGO sets of musical equipment pertaining to DJs, in particular Technics turntables and all kinds of samplers. Check his cool work out here on his personal website http://numode.net/
