NSFW after the jump
Fuerteventura was the setting for this wonderful figure in the landscape ‘Big Picture’ two day workshop. The 2014 event is booking up here.
The small island of Fuerteventura is just off the coast of Africa and while it was snowing in the UK we basked in 26º sunshine. This is just the second time I’ve shot with Carla so I arranged a recce and a practice shoot the day before the workshop. I had done a provisional recce of the island and a shoot with my mate and fellow tutor Martin Hill at the same time in 2012. So we knew it was going to be amazing. This recce with Carla was just to refresh my memory and check that everything was still okay. Together we mapped out our shoot locations, decided on the styling for each zone and planned the lighting set ups.
Camera: Fujifilm X-Pro1
Fujifilm Lenses: 14mm f/2.8, 18mm-55mm zoom f/2.8-4, 35mm f/1.4, 60mm f/2.4

Please feel free to comment on these shots. We covered quite a lot of styles, locations and genres over the two days. I don’t hang around on these events. We shoot as a team and never move on until everyone has their shots. We have fun together in the evenings and to many delegates these events are life enriching and some would say life changing.
