Out and about in the Steel City

6th Jun 2014

In or out, that was the decision I was leaving to Ruth. Did she want to shoot in the studio or on location? When Saturday finally arrived it wasn't a hard choice to make, Two words immediately sprang to mind, Torrential and Rain! But all was not lost, we spent the morning shooting somewhat conventional studio portraits of the British Champ and then, when the rain had finally subsided enough to load 3 flash packs and heads, lighting stands, tripods, softboxes, cameras, Ruth, Jimmy and myself into the car we headed out to a secret location, with I hasten to add a roof! I’d found this derelict building last year while compiling photos for a book on Graffiti and the back wall of the building was just what we needed to add a splash of colour to the proceedings.
