The other week I did some assisting work for Bev Short at the now infamous Fever Hospital.
As well as my usual assisting duties Bev asked if I could take some shots of her working for some future publicity. Bev usually lets me take a few shots when she is working on her own projects and I have put up some behind the scene shot previously but this meant I took quite a lot more than I usually would.
Anyway here’s what it looks like behind the scenes at one of her shoots…and yes that is a custom made snoot on the second setup 🙂 We are after all living in a number 8 wire and duct tape country…
Go see some of the finished shots HERE
My favorite shot of Bev is definitely the last one 🙂
Black And White: Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
A couple of weeks ago Alex and I did a photo shoot for Wellington band Spook The Horses for a publicity shot for their upcoming album Brighter.
This was the first time for me shooting on a roof and the logistical quagmire of setting up lights and getting angles. Luckily we had a couple of extras to hold lights since light stands weren’t an option an apart from my equipment showing its age and a few workarounds with duct tape things went pretty smoothly (shots of setting up to come).
It was a great group of guys to shoot and I really enjoyed the shooting them 🙂

Photo shoot on the beech by the playground where Sam and I go after we wander through town.
I am currently in a bit of a state of transition at the moment as Sam has pretty much grown out of the backpack and I am trying to get her to walk instead. Unfortunately this is meaning that I am taking less images 😦
Bear with me and hopefully all will be back to normal soon 🙂 and I do have a film to develop…
