Yesterday saw my job take me to the coast of Suffolk to shoot for a beautiful delicate scarf designer's collection. It was cold. In fact, it was beyond cold. We faced all the weather the gods threw at us; wind, snow, rain, even a little sunbeam among the madness. However, we braved the skies and elements as we shot in fields and on the pebbled beaches, setting up base in the most lovely pub just next to the beach. Despite this perhaps being the coldest location shoot I've ever done, and having just returned from Morocco, from the warmth, and then working inside on a studio shoot this week, it was a shock to the system. We wrapped up the final look as the sun was setting and got back into the car. Mark the photographer turned to me and said 'Tan, you look shocked!' and yes! The coldness had shocked me indeed. It was really good to work with Mark again, and catch up on all that seems to happen in the space of about two years since we first had our test shoot together.
The client was so lovely, and regardless of the weather we maintained good spirits! Perhaps this was due to the client buying us coffees and teas for constant energy boosts and breaks. She also treated us to lunch and dinner (The pub served the most delicious food). Particularly enjoyed by the open fire in early evening when we had finished the shoot. We located ourselves in one of the rooms and chatted, looked through our work, and just enjoyed spending time with a really cool bunch of people.
