Summer was late arriving in the UK and I am going way on holiday and various business trips over the summer. This mean I will not be shooting much in August and September. Before the trips, I wanted to do a shoot that reflects the hot summer. Vanessa replied to my casting call I placed on purpleport.com. I already have a good idea of what I wanted from this shoot, but Vanessa also came in with a lot of her ideas. We did quite a bit of email communication before the shoot. She arrived at the shoot with sample images printed out as reference.
We ended the shoot with a quirky image of Vanessa wearing a T shirt with a bow tie sewed on. This was shot against a bright red metal door in bright sun light. The contrast of the bright colour made the image pop. Again a totally unexpected image from this shoot.
