Well I recently went to visit my friend and fellow artist Rod Munro who lives in a beautiful part of Scotland, and not one to miss out on a photographic opportunity I was most grateful that the amazing Madame Bink made the ‘very long’ journey up to join us.
It was an extremely long journey for her. I emailed her a picture of my Mocha from the airport departure lounge – this is Bink’s favourite drink, and so I thought it would get me ‘in tune with her’ – and she had already been on the road for 4-5 hours, and we both arrived at Aberdeen airport at around the same time.
Now one thing I sort of knew about Bink was that she did not like heights, so here’s a shot of our first location, including a handy indicator of where I asked her to pose! Of course the best light was near the edge :-D
And this was the view down.
And I did tell her not to look down :)
OK, enough stage setting and let’s see some snaps.
Oh, and I also took her to a barn full of bird poo, look at that light though!!
Now in my defence I did keep saying to her that she did not have to do the poses, but Bink is the ultimate professional, so even after a very long journey, and really cold and windy conditions (oh did I forgot to mention that it was not very warm, sorry Bink!) and her fear of heights, she came up with the goods, as she always does. So if you want the very best, just Bink it :)
I always express my gratitude to models for their part in creating such great images with me, but extra special thanks must go to Bink for all she endured on this shoot. Thank you Bink.
