I never quite understand photographers who take models to amazing locations and then take really close-up shots that could have been taken in their back garden! When I go to a location I try to look for features that are different to other places, and highlight them in the images.
I’m doing more longer trips with models as that enables us to shoot at locations that are not really feasible on single-day or short trips. I was fortunate to go to such a location in Scotland with the lovely Fawnya, we found some great locations, and to really show their magnificence I went for a wider than even usual view, so she is rather petite in some of the images.
The first three were taken at sunrise, the light was lovely and Fawnya did an amazing job posing as those green rocks were so slippery that it was really difficult to walk across them, never mind pose on them.
Many rocks have natural jagged shapes, so it was interesting to find some that were cube-shaped, which Fawnya did a great angular pose against,
This one was particularly interesting because of the criss-crossing of the strata.
Beautifully coloured jagged rocks.
I think she filled this gap in the rocks we found extremely well.
More great lines and a super pose.
And while I do have some closer up ones I do like this one showing her as a tiny figure in the landscape.
Many thanks to Fawnya for a productive and really enjoyable trip, there are loads more images to come from this shoot, and I look forward to our future trips together.
