The moment Eddie Betts walked into the room/studio for the Google Pixel shoot I knew it was going to be an unforgettable day. I’d been hired to capture behind-the-scenes stills photography for the new AFL X Google ad campaign which is splashed across all of your screens right now, you know the one, where Eddie effortlessly makes a perfect latte whilst his family watching on.

Eddie served all the looks (and lattes) whilst keeping it chill, making my job of capturing his portrait and candid behind-the-scenes moments so easy amongst the chaos of being on set. 

There’s a reason Australia loves Eddie so much and I’m lucky to have experienced it first-hand.¬†
