This moment is captured at 5AM in the morning which means I had to wake up with a 3 in my alarm clock, because this is certainly not what I look like when I wake up 😉 Nonetheless my eyes still look quite sleepy, haha! But shooting at this hour, with a cool breeze and the warmth of the rising sun is magical and makes up for the crazy calltime.
Later that day we shot at a lovely farm in South Africa. I almost never know what the day will bring, because I mostly only get told where to be at what time. In the beginning it was quite hard not to know, but to go with the flow. Nowadays I am as flexible as a yogi.
Next to that I always bring way too much stuff with me to be prepared for any type of (weather) situation. Especially when shooting on location a lot of unexpected things can happen, like to have to jump in a lake wherefore it’s convenient if you have some spare undies 😉 or to have to hike to the final location because it’s not possible to get there by car.. In those situations you regret just wearing flip-flops. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE these challenges and it often makes the days special and unforgettable.
