One of the most interesting (but also the most tiring) shoots i've been on to date. Filming at night at Newtyle as part of a short film with Greg being produced by Hot Aches Productions.

Very good, looks like a fog machine was used always fancied hiring one to try a light shoot in the woods somewhere.

Thanks everyone. The finished film from Hot Aches will be hitting the festival circuit soon so make sure to keep an eye out for it!

I know that this message goes against the grain of these posts, but this photo is not my cup of tea. It's style is a bit like an Athena poster from the 1980's and gives me flashbacks to business motivational posters e.g. 'Whilst most people dream of success, winners wake up and work to achieve it' etc etc. Call me an aging, fuddy-duddy......Go on, go on.

Um...you're an aging, fuddy-duddy? I don't know you but you *did* ask.
For an example of how good motivational posters can be, check out despair.com - my favourite purveyor of such items. :-)

Cool Shot!

ilarge; Ha, ha! Thanks. You're right, I did ask for that, but no amount of 'self birching' has helped me change my mind on the photo discussed. However, a visit to your recommended website gave me a few laughs this Friday afternoon. Cheers

I'm another fuddy-duddy. It's dispiriting how often gimmicky and staged photos get UKC photo of the week (fish-eye lenses, night climbing headtorches, floodlit bouldering, this one, etc). A good photo, in my opinion, reflects reality. These don't. Have a 1!
