Love your sister: my shoot with Samuel and Connie Johnson

On February 14, 2014, Australian actor Samuel Johnson completed a 15,955 km unicycle journey around Australia, broke the world record for the longest unicycle journey. He’s now raise almost $2 million for breast cancer research.

Samuel’s motivation for this incredible act of endurance is his sister Connie, who is living with stage 4 breast cancer.

 

When Samuel first told me about his plans to ride a unicycle around Australia I thought he was crazy. I also thought he was inspiring, courageous and an absolute legend.

I’m so honoured to be a sponsor of Samuel and Connie’s Charity, Love Your Sister.

We did the photo shoot just before Samuel embarked on his world record-breaking unicycle trip because doctors had warned Samuel that Connie may not survive the next 12 months.

It has now been almost two years since I did that shoot and loveyoursister.org is well on its way to raising millions of dollars towards Breast Cancer research. Connie and Samuel have just finished their first book, Love Your Sister
