Alice 17th May 2010 Cham-Share

Just wanted to say a few "shout outs" to all those people who helped me out over the last two weeks while i've been working in Chamonix / Annecy.  Firstly a huge thanks must go to Steph at Adventure Base / Dream Guides for helping me out sourcing models. I was slightly stuck for a psuedo "young couple" for a days shooting in Annecy. I wanted to use locals if at all possible but hadn't been able...

Bee Hive 15th May 2010 Chamonix - Gone Fishing

Chamonix came and went in a misty wet haze. We arrived in rain, the first day of shooting had to take place over in Italy due to the fact we couldn't actually see above the Tree line due to fog, we managed about 4 shots which to be honest was all we could expect given the intermittent rain. We awoke to the sound of heavey rain on Saturday, it didn't stop or even slow down for most of the day. We...

Packing 11th May 2010 The Zen of Packing

I hate packing. I always have and always will. Probably because i'm crap at it, i seem to favour the "everything and the kitchen sink" genre of packing. I get worried and break out into a sweat when i see things in the singular.

Meilee Rafe 4th May 2010 Gouther and Armathwaite

Just back from a great bank holiday weekend in the Lakes. I was rather hoping for a spot of sun-drenched rock in some far flung spot away from the tourists, but i needn't have worried. As it turned out the sun poked its head out from behind the rain clouds only periodically and the temperature, only last week nudging 18 degrees barely reached 8 degrees. We were in the lakes shooting photos for a...
