Erm yeah. Did some good shots with Stacey. But I don’t want to upload any (apart from this one) because near the start of the shoot when I was in make up she was chatting to the make up artist and, in a discussion about subtitles, said “if I see a chink or a jap I just stop watching because I know there’s not going to be any English”. It made me extremely uncomfortable, and I kind of wish I’d said something, but I didn’t want to disrupt the shoot for Karen and Nic. I’m going to be charitable and assume she just doesn’t know that saying that kind of thing is very offensive and hurtful, but it still coloured my opinion of her and negatively influenced how I view the photographs we did together.
