One of the more complex, intricate shoots I was involved in this year featured the back drop of a large lake, several boats and lots of competent junior sailors dressed in character – as you do! Being on location at Walhampton is always exciting and this campaign was to a particularly specific brief. Needless to say there were a great many dependables, not least the weather, water and a group of 8 – 13 year olds. I have to say the children were remarkable in their boat handling and hanging around while we set up. It always impresses me how these pupils can be running around one moment and completely in control and taking responsibility and instruction the next.
Sometimes life throws things at you that you could never ever have anticipated. This happened to me twice during November. One piece of news I’ll share with you at later date (it’s huge) the other knocked my socks off and I’ll share it with you right now!
I have been nominated for an award, I know! Not only that, but I was nominated twice by parties who remain anonymous to me. Clearly I owe a huge debt of gratitude somewhere along the line, and now I find myself asking you all to take 3 minutes to hit the link and vote for me in the ‘Rising Star’ category. Oddly I have previously photographed one of my ‘opponents’.
Every time I go on location with BH Live I find myself holding my stomach in and trying hard to swagger nonchalantly amongst all the fitness coaches and PTs while I shoot, nodding magnanimously at their tales of incredible feats and achievements. My recent images are about to be posted on the walls of the newest BH Live property in Corfe Mullen in 96 sheet size #huge
