Old Studio Closes & Flunky Models

Well, as of about an hour ago, the old studio is officially closed as the last prop and piece of rigging is moved out. Just a few dustballs left rolling around the floor...

The new studio will open in 6 to 8 weeks, with our first big shoots already being planned for November (stay tuned for more on those).

The last fortnight was supposed to have been wall-to-wall creative shoots; and instead was a fortnight that's involved more rescheduling and bullshit excuses than could ever be imagined. When you get contacted by models, who tell you how much they want to work with you, and want the opportunity to shoot, then you'd think they'd make an effort when the shoot is planned and prep'd over two weeks prior to actually turn up.

Today's cancellation really pissed me off. After a two week long exchange of messages, not only did the model today not bother to turn up, but she had the audacity to give me a bullshit excuse, and actually block me on Model Mayhem. WTF?

Friday 3 September 2010


This week has just disappeared... Lots of shoots booked, lots of cancellations, lots of rescheduling, lots of re-bookings... Not sure how, but I'm shooting with the models booked, but not on the original days booked, and I'm shooting on just the days I originally booked on.

Shattered nonetheless, and have hundreds of images to pick, polish and publish - must stay awake and get a few done...

On a side note, I have FINALLY received the Polaroid film I ordered a month ago. I was hoping it would arrive for Wednesday's shoot, as it would have been a great trial - I'll just have to wait a bit longer to try it.

Right, I've got images to sort out.
