Scott Hardy is one of our favourite photographers we love to work with, it's always Stress free and his eye for the unique is very refined. Originally from France, Scott moved to New Zealand a few years ago and we have been shooting with him ever since.

We recently spoke to Scott about what he is obsessed with...

I’m obsessed with listening to?

Sea Song by Robert Wyatt. The whole album is actually pretty amazing. The cover by Alfreda Benge is also an artwork in and of itself. There is a very interesting article on both of them in the last issue of Luncheon magazine.

I’m obsessed with creating?

Work that people resonate with and come back to. that is its own self-contained world.

I’m obsessed with going to?

Good light

I’m obsessed with reading?

Pattern Recognition by William Gibson is a book I can read and read again. I've finally started reading Ferdydurke by Witold Gombrowicz after hearing about it by many friends and someone finally gave me their copy because I just had to read it.

I’m obsessed with the art of?

Claudio Parmiggiani, Alfreda Benge for her playfulness and reinventions, Pontorno's colours... The list changes and grows every day.

I’m obsessed with the photography of?

Joel Meyerowitz is someone whose work took me a while to appreciate and am now absolutely obsessed with it.
Maciek Pozoga's images are brimming with life and draw me back in time and time again.

I’m obsessed with the design of?

I always come back to what Ben Daly does to the spaces he lives in, very honest and refined interior architecture. I would love to visit one of the spaces he worked on one day.

I’m obsessed with wearing?

I don't have any Meadowlark rings (eeeeeeeeeeeeh I know), if I had something it would probably be something like the Fairfax or the Sunset signet ring and I'd probably be very annoying and ask to have it made in brass.

I’m also obsessed with...?

Woodworking, good bread and good salted butter, giallo movies, our cat Suzie, and curios...
