working overtime

Who’d have though working overtime would have been such good fun?

Here’s a group of people with the necessary skills to get things done.

Go to work
Finish work
Comb hair, apply makeup, change into corporate T-shirt
Grab a glass of fizzy or crack open a bottle of beer
Step in front of the cameras and just go for it!
Laugh at your pictures, re-shoot, have another drink, get more pics, laugh at everything.
Finish the nibbles then head out on the town for a great night out.

Now THAT’s a photoshoot.

My job is ACE!

Thank you guys for letting me into your offices and grabbing a snapshot of the real you. What a fab, vibrant lot you are. You made me smile.

Floored

Commercial stuff. It’s not all that easy. Floored!

Starting with a brief to photograph a floor. A very nice floor I’d have you notice. But still… I got floored.

I would never have imagined so much furniture needing to be shifted. I mean.. looking for a space to shoot without it being covered in chairs, tables, stools, baby seats, high chairs, benches and many more oddments of furniture. Makes you think about what goes into a pub these days.

Gotta admit, I never expected this when I took on the job.

Imagine a scene from a movie set.. as they’re preparing to shoot.

Ladders, drills, tool boxes, tarps, paint pots and a whole menagerie of workers jostling for space.
Boxes of brushes, buckets of mess. TV installers, electricians, chefs talking at me. Flippin heck! Aaargh.. where do I start? What do I focus on? (Hey I made a funny!)

But seriously, somehow I have to get a picture out of this mayhem and just look at the mess they’ve made. Drilling dust all over the place, paint drops on that beautiful oak and the whole place full of new recruits undergoing interviews, sitting in “my” chairs and eating at “my” tables! Waaah!

Floored

 

So between sweeping the floor and shifting all manor of tables and chairs to suit the composition I think I’ve had enough after two and a half hours of scrabbling amongst bar room decor and dodging co-workers to grab a shot. Don’t get me wrong these were very nice people, really nice.. but when you’re asked to shoot a floor you at least expect to see it.

At least my clients are happy with the results so I guess  all that work, all that effort, all that sweat was worth it working in a pub without beer.

Bugger this.. I need a drink.
