These pics were taken by John Godwin of London Headshots in 2013 and he must be a genius. I paid £150, which is a great price, for a full usage license and I put them here because 1. It’s a good place to save them (saves on cloud space, given I am paying for this blog anyway!) 2. he asked me to “squinch”, which is where you close your eyes, but without squinting. ie raise the bottom eyelid, to make you look more appealing and interesting. The trick is to eliminate any white eyeball under the iris. It’s hard, but it does work! Google Brad Pitt and you will see him doing this all the time. 3. I want one of these pictures to appear on my Wikipedia entry, which is being created!
