I couldn't have picked a worst day as far as the weather was concerned to shoot my latest fashion project - The Couple Who Fell to Earth. It was a location shoot, shot on the Isle of Portland at Portland Bill. The location is a remote part of the coast in one of the most southerly points of the mainland in the English Channel which is noted for it's rough coast. I chose the location for it's interesting other-worldly rock formations and remote feel.
The weather on the shoot day as 27mph gusts of wind, low cloud and heavy rain and my team and I had to deal with the worst conditions to shoot in.
We went well prepared, taking lighting kits for most situations and most importantly of all - lots of umbrellas, although all but one of these was destroyed by the very strong wind.
Here's a few behind the scenes shots to give you an idea of how the day went...
The weather gradually improved throughout the day, culminating in blue skies and sunshine, however the strong wind remained which blew constant sea spray over the crew and equipment.
Somehow we managed to pull it off and I remain ever grateful to my committed team who without their help, this wouldn't have been possible.
