So how did I change my feelings and what changed my mind? Well finally I re-shot the same location on different commissions as it was perfect for each job. And now I know that revisiting a location is really the same as revisiting any background that I use to create pictures. It's OK because it's not just the background that makes the shot, it is everything that goes into it (although I knew that already). The garments, the models, the hair and make-up, the attitude, they all help to define the original nature of a fashion shoot, modelling portfolio or portrait, in the studio or on location.
Lulu in Chains. I had recommended the client scout for a 'wall' down in The Rocks for our shoot that appealed to their taste and the label. As soon as they told me, I knew the location, it's a popular photographers wall to say the least and for good reason, photographed well it looks great, it was just that until then I had never photographed it before.
I love this wall in The Rocks and its not the only location like it that I love but it is the first one that I have ever photographed repeatedly. Curiously every time I pass by this wall I am amazed that it is as small as it is, that's right it's really quite small and it seems like we have produced a little miracle fitting these tall models into the space. And although on the page together you can see it is the same location, viewed as separate campaigns they represent beautifully different looks and feels, after all that's what great photography is all about and I love it.
