Adding to my growing photography library is a new shoot from late last year, shot in the beautiful Lake District. Wrynose Pass to be exact, on the hills just above. It’s a stunning location, for filming or photography, or just to visit: http://lakedistrict.gov.uk
I love these location photo shoots. Anything that gets me out and about in the open air, with my camera, a few lights and lenses and I’m set. They usually consist of a very early start, to get the sunrise/light and we’re all done by about mid afternoon.
A friend of mine always says: “Photographers, we’re either up very early, or not up at all”. That is we’re either working at the crack of dawn, to get the light, or resting after an early start the previous day. This wasn’t too bad, up at about 5AM for a 6:30AM photo shoot start.
The photo shoot went pretty well too. The commercial photography has been supplied to high-end stock library Image Source, for their library. The link to the images on the library is to follow, in the meantime, here’s the main link to the website http://imagesource.com
I was working as a commercial photographer for this job, but it didn’t stop spotting and capturing an editorial image supplied to the Guardian for their Eyewitness page – http://www.theguardian.com/world/picture/2014/sep/02/eyewitness-little-langdale-lake-district
All in all a pretty good day on the hills. (Scroll down to keep reading)
The camera used was a Nikon D800 with a lazy boy lens. Plus some bare SB-900s, battery packs and Pocket Wizards. Next shoot I think I’ll bring my Fujifilm X-T1 to save weight, but that’s for another day.
The photographs were taken in September 2014, in the beautiful setting of Wrynose Pass in the Lake District. it has to be one of England’s finest outdoor settings.
The models were: Tom Whitehead, Ryan Elliott and Sam Pearce. Thanks guys.
