Nige has been on my tours every year so working with him was extra special on this thrid tour. It was super challenging as I knew he had been to most of my locations before but obviously I wanted to help him create new and exciting images. I think we more then managed it! Although we did re-visist some locations we had been to before I managed to think of a few new spots and I'm so happy we gave it a go.
This was in a run down farm we spotted. It took us a good 20 minutes to walk up the super steep track in the blazing sunshine. We could of gotten up there to find it was all sealed off but we decided to risk it, the idea of it being suitable to work at as a new location for Nige as motivation and the gamble paid off. Whilst many areas were sealed off or padlocked shut one of the old out house was left open. We darted inside into the very welcoming shade and grabbed the above shot.
These shots to the right were taken in two seperate locations. The top images was taken at a layby with these wonderful views of the Lincolnshire Wolds running behind me. Lincolnshire is not flat people. It all looks so peaceful in the photo. You wouldn't think that there were great big noisy trucks rattling past whilst we were shooting.
The bottom images was taken in a nature reserve a bit further inland. It wasn't at all busy so we could relax a little bit more when doing this set. The sky was so blue during this part of the day. It was all very beautiful and I loved being able to enjoy the sunshine properly for a little while.
The image below was in another small abandoned building and despite being dark we did a few shots there. Nige was working with natural light and I really like the dramatic results that were created as a result. The old machinery looks so ery. It was all very run down and smelly. Rotting hay (and God knows what else) covered the floor, all soft and spongey. We had to be very careful whilst working there.
And now for my last two images. These are my absolute favourites from the day. Every year, me and Nige have been very sucessful with the images we have gotten on the beach. Weather it's been super rainy or theres been a few people about so we have to work fast we've always gotten images we love there. And this year was absolutely no exception. I fucking love these photos.
Thank you for such a super day Nige, it's always great working with you!
