At the time, this was by far the most ambitious photo shoot I’d done.

As all my shoots have concepts, or themes, and all my photo shoots end up having very unique names derived from the personality of the shoot, I thought I’d take the idea a little further than I’d ever done before.

The concept for this shoot was this: Over three days shoot three very different models in three different locations. Each model was put in a place defined by my impression of their personality. Each model was given a prop for them to use or to be shot against, and yes the prop is also chosen based on the model’s personality.

So over three days, Fri, Sat, Sun, each model is shot during sunset.

While on set I was struck with very specific names for each shoot. Deep, Down, and High. (The series later became known as DDH).

The “Down” shoot is the second shoot. And just like the first shoot, it was raining heavy all day.

And again like the first day we decided to push on. And amazingly, just like the first day, the moment we showed on at the location the rain stopped and the sun broke through the clouds. Then, when we finished and started packing up, the sun when back behind the clouds and the rain started as if on cue.
