Olympics inspired kids fashion shoot
Getting into the Olympic spirit
To help get us into the mood for the Olympics we thought that a fun Olympic shoot was the order of the day, so after the usual panic over models and last minute change of shoot location we found ourselves in Battersea, South London on an overcast but bright spring day armed with half the contents of a local school gymnasium as our props.
Shoots in studios tend to take longer to set up than on locations as we can control the lighting and composition of the images more, so it's important that any props used fit naturally into the picture and don't look too contrived.
Once the props have been arranged, it's left to the kids to interact with their space. We always try to make our shoots fun, some of our best photos are when the children are at ease and enjoying themselves, then the perfect picture just presents itself to our team.
