Photographer Tim Hailand and friend Jake Shears visit Outwrite this week

Counting Rufus Wainwright, Jake Shears and Daniel Radcliffe among friends makes Tim Hailand an icon in his own right, but it's the household names that take focus in his "One Day in the Life Of" series.

Hailand, who's openly gay, brings the latest of his photo books "One Day in the Life of Jake Shears" to Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse Friday, April 8, at 2 p.m.

Better yet, Shears himself will be on hand to sign and discuss the book as well. The Scissor Sisters perform later that evening at the Tabernacle.

"One Day in the Life Of Jake Shears" is the third in Hailand's series, following the publication of similar sets with Radcliffe and Wainwright. Next on the list is gay rugby player Gareth Thomas.

In an email interview with the GA Voice, Hailand discussed what goes on behind the lens and why, despite covering Wainwright, Shears and Thomas, his books aren't "One GAY in the Life."
