Come rain or shine

Now that we've had a few hot sunny days in London, I don't feel too bad posting about our shoot with KBS+P in LA a few months back when it was really depressingly cold in London.

We did initially bring the rain with us though. It was raining bucket loads when we were out tech scouting.

And here's the photographic evidence - it does rain in LA.

Not the most auspicious start but the team was quickly bonding over a flat tyre.

Luckily the sun was out when we were shooting. Glad it wasn't the
other way around...

But poor Dan was stuck under a tent not being able to get his LA tan.

HIGHLIGHT - We managed to track down the Kogi truck! This is what London needs! Gourmet food trucks selling Korean BBQ burritos (I know it sounds wrong) and other delights! It would be our saviour from dodgy kebabs and those men on street corners selling stinky sausages made out of god knows what.

If it's nice and sunny, even a shoot in a car park is loooovely for us sun deprived Londoners.

You wouldn't think so looking at this photo but it really was a hardcore shoot with 26 ads to shoot in total.

We sure did bang 'em out. But obviously with much skill and care.

And it goes without saying that a great team makes everything so much easier and so much more fun.

200 Best Ad Photographers

It's so nice to get something through the post other than a utility bill, an invoice or a leaflet from a local pizza delivery place with the most unappetising photo of a pizza. This morning we received our copy of L├╝rzer's Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide.

Jason's plastic food series can be found on page 166.
