I don't normally publish colour images of my photos; I'm a black & white photographer predominantly. But I made an exception when Janet Aspley contacted me for a colour version of a photograph of Danny Wilson from Danny & the Champions of the World.
Janet is a bespoke shirtmaker and her company is called Dandy & Rose. Danny was sporting his new Dandy & Rose shirt at his Louisiana gig in Bristol last week when I took this photograph.
Dandy & Rose make beautiful, western style shirts in bold prints. Janet's shirts are worn by many musicians including other members of the Champions, but they are available to all. She has many customers in one of my favourite places: Nashville - Music City. Take a look at the Dandy & Rose web site here. www.dandyandrose.com
One of Janet's missions is to rid the world of check shirts, and since she told me that I can't stop spotting check shirts everywhere, including in my wardrobe.
I'll be organising a fitting very soon.
Incidentally, I think black and white photographs of bold prints are also quite striking. But obviously if one wants to promote a shirt print, colour is the way forward.
