This post might seem a little bit of an odd one for a site like this, but as I often shoot on location (English weather permitting), I also go camping on location if I want to shoot particularly late, or super early in the morning – or if I want to scout out a location and see how it looks at different times of the day and night.
Friday/Saturday was an example of the latter at a location that’s absolutely gorgeous in the summer when the sun’s out and the clouds are few.
Arranging a shoot here, however, is not a simple affair, especially when you have a lot of equipment to carry, as well as food and other supplies. Two of us each had to make two trips between the car and the location to carry everything up.
So, an overnight test was essential to work everything out in advance of actually arranging a shoot.
After 5 or 6 months of almost non-stop rain, we’ve finally started to see some breaks in the clouds the last couple of weeks and had one or two days of rather lovely sunshine.
That means it’s time to get out of the studio and back on location!
Throughout the year, even when I’m not actively shooting on location, I’m always looking for new places to photograph clients, models and other subjects. It’s just something I tend to naturally do when I’m out travelling somewhere.
