I love getting away from the studio and making great portraits outside, in nature, without the support and equipment that I have in the studio. Although I lose the control that the studio gives me, I gain a creative drive that is sometimes lacking in the studio. Given that I have fewer options available to me while on location I must be more creative with what I do have.
Dali handed the last bag of gear down the cold aluminium ladder and we started winding our way along the trail cut into the cliff face.
