Portrait Session — Josh Beggs

men in this town, Portrait Session podcast in partnership with Emporio Armani

Welcome to season six of Portrait Session, in partnership with Emporio Armani. This season, I’m doing things a little bit differently. Instead of shooting men in this town in my studio, I’ll be capturing them in their natural habitat — living la dolce vita, and finding out what living the sweet life actually means to them in this day and age.

JOSH BEGGS

In this season finale, I’m bringing it home, chatting with my partner in crime and publishing creative director, Josh Beggs. Having worked in magazine publishing for over 15 years, Josh has designed and directed for a variety of mastheads including 5 years at GQ Australia and currently as Creative Director of the country’s most read magazine, The Australian Women’s Weekly. In our chat, we look back at the road that got him where he is today and why he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Portrait Session — Edward O'Leary

EDWARD O’LEARY

In this episode, I’m chatting with Sydney based actor and creator, Edward O’Leary. Having recently studied acting at the International Screen Academy, Edward has been mesmerised by the glow of television and film since he was a kid. He always imagined himself on the screen one day, but never actually saw himself represented in Australia as a Pacific Islander or a man in LGBTQ+ community. Taking action into his own hands, he began collaborating with young filmmakers on short films and web series, hoping to tell stories that might otherwise go untold.
