What were some of the main challenges you faced?
Our main challenge was that we had no team with us. We really value the input from a great crew and it is always so vital to have those extra helping hands that we could not rely on in this remote shoot situation.
Our other big challenge was not having any proper lighting equipment to make up for those inevitable dark and gloomy days. This meant we had to work entirely around the weather, adapting our schedule day by day.
The whole process felt similar to shooting entirely on film. There has been a constant surprise element when discovering the final images at the end of a day of shooting.
What is it like working together as a duo?
We have been working together for about two years now, and the best thing about it is that we each bring a different approach to image making. It is a bit like having an extra set of eyes, a complementary extension of your own.
Normally we would be looking at the images and discussing them as we shoot, but in this scenario, I was on the other side of the camera, as a model.
I often model for our personal projects and we have learned how to tune into this process as a creative team. In this aspect, not having a crew with us definitely made each image more relaxed, intimate, and honest.
