I was booked by a good customer of mine - Sarah Dean, the founder of DAPA in Deal, Kent - recently. She asked if I could do head shots of a number of her vocational students, and a couple of group shots.
Now, my gear is reliable, and kept well, and for some reason I had a FREAK accident with my backdrop pole - it jammed, and we couldn't put it up!
So, we had to think on our feet, by cutting a square of material and securing it to the wall - meanwhile I'd called my Dad (what a babe) to come down and check it out. He took it to his garage, fixed it, and sent it back JUST in time for group shots.
Stressful stuff...
Photography isn't all about running through forests eh ;)
Check out the snaps.
