April is meant to be the beginning of Spring?
For the last couple of years it was pretty much a sure thing that the week before our location photoshot the sun would be out shining bright and people would be casting off their winter woollies. However, come the day of the photoshoot, they’d need to dive back into their wardrobes for their winter gear.
Sadly our photoshoot in April 2011 was no exception. During the week prior to the shoot we experienced some of the hottest weather for the whole year, the sun blazed, delivering temperatures into the mid to high-twenties. But we knew better than to get carried away with the shorts and polo shirts. And we were right – come the day of the shoot, the only sun shining was the artificial kind created by Chris and his big reflector.
It rained and when it was done raining, it rained some more.
Nevertheless, we persisted. Periodically we braved the rain to dash between locations, the staff delivered hot beverages in an attempt to keep everyone warm. The models sought safety under umbrellas and moved like members of a chain gang; step by step, one foot in front of the other, keeping perfect time to avoid breaking the line and letting the water penetrate the train of umbrellas keeping them dry. And somehow we kept the show going.
We hope you like this photoshoots collection of behind the scenes images.
