Just another manic Monday...

Edited - 13/2/10


Today was tough going. It was one of those situations where chaos lead to anarchy. A simple day was planned, I read the itinerary and all seemed well and dandy. 100 students split into 3 groups, each of the 100 to style a quick fashion shoot with the help of a professional stylist.

I arrived at work early and started getting the studio ready, a simple lighting setup was all that was needed, then all I had to do was wait until they turned up in an orderly manner, before taking their pictures and summoning in the next - easy

10 minutes before I was expecting anyone, I was informed that the stylist didn't turn up and there was no members of staff free to organise the groups - this was where the chaos trickled in. The 92 girls and 8 lads that had prepared their shoots started lining up outside the studio expectantly... all of them!

I only had two options available to me, hide in the corner of the studio and hope they'd go away, or try my best to make sure they all got something out of the day. So 6 hours, 1 cup of coffee, 2 toilet brakes, over 900 pictures and sore eyes later I managed to shut doors on some relatively happy customers, and collapse :)

Here's a sneak peak of some of what we got up to and I have to say, they all did a great job


Here is an updated image from the Monday & Tuesday shoots combined - I did not take the pictures on the second day, but altogether they look pretty amazing - this will be be printed and up on the walls at Uni quite soon :)

Hey Robbie! It's looks like a lo-res picture from a distance - I keep trying to see a pattern in the dark and light! It looks like a lot of hard work, so hats off to you for pulling it off! Indigo
