Ive loved running since I was 12. Both myself and my brother were runners at school and in the RAF, during training, I always came first (and I had to run in issue plimsolls (ouch). Over the years I have fits and starts of running - I'm not consistent but then that is my life! I'm more of a distance runner and whilst I run, I actually think and plan. So with a recent health kick, I began running on Saturday night. I run every other day (when I'm in the zone) and manage Faartlek based sessions the best over a distance of 5k. And whilst running last night, I planned an editorial submission in my head.
So on the 19th and 20th March I will be shooting a spring based theme inspired by this mood board here. I'm even using live rabbits and little chicks (scream!) as carefully handled props.
I put a casting call out for 2 x androgynous models (I found two - one in Liverpool, one in Leeds), 2 x MUA's (both from Liverpool) and 2 x hairstylist - none as yet but I reckon we can all smoosh that end of the bargain. I'm styling the set myself and have literally begged some high streets and independent shops for loan of clothes - its what you do on a budget of ZERO. Don't you just love a challenge?
I love editorial style shooting. I like urban settings with natural light. I like models to not "over pose" - and just let them be with a soupcon of direction. I don't favour big cheesy smiles or duck faced pouting. I hate the kind of lighting that is reminiscent of a 1980's music video. I like shadows and mood. And that is where we are going with this.
I'm a bit scared to be honest and couple that with my other work commitments, its also a drain on my free time. But its so exciting. And whilst I continue to run, I continue to come up with outlandish ideas that harmonises with being a born creative.
This is my life.
