I was asked to take some commercial photography for Courtyard Cycle Hire who are based in Kirkcowan. The brief seemed relatively straightforward ‘take some nice shots on a sunny day of people enjoying the hire bikes’. However after three weeks of rain and no sign of sunny weather things were getting desperate. Then one evening there was a break in the rain for approximately one hour. We hastily gathered up camera equipment, found a few ‘willing’ models and the all important bikes and headed out into the great outdoors. Occasionally the sun popped it’s head out from between the clouds for a fleeting moment and I desperately tried to compose the photographs to include the small patches of blue sky that were on offer.
Below is the result of 60 minutes work and allowed the client to get a website up and running and produce some leaflets to advertise the business. Another shoot is planned for a proper sunny day 🙂
