Stuntman Andrew

My latest shoot was with Andrew, who soon qualifies as a stuntman. He needed some photos to show his Tae Kwon Do and Gymnastic skills.

Even though it was already December, we decided to shoot on location on a beach near Portsmouth. Luckily it stopped raining just before we arrived. It was one of the warmer days in December, but it was obviously very windy, which made it very cold after all. There were still quite a few wind surfers and kite surfers out in the sea enjoying the waves and my assistant almost joined them with the umbrella :-)

Andrew started doing his Tae Kwon Do routines on top of the sand dunes with the dramatic sky in the background, while I was shooting from down low, to make it look even more powerful. 

The weather forecast for once was correct and the sun came out soon after, so we went down to the water to shoot Andrews two- and one-handed handstands.

Because of the cold weather we had to work very fast, but thanks to the weather changing quickly as well, we were able to get all our shots in a short period of time.

That’s what I love about the weather in the UK, you often can get many different looks throughout a day!
