Yes, it sucks being stuck in the snow. Yesterday, I went for a shoot down in Southampton (which by the way went very well). It wasn't snowing when I finished the shoot but once I got on the home-bound train at 19:12, I noticed that halfway through the journey, it was snowing like hell.... the ground was covered with inches of this white powder, the snow just wouldn't stop! Luckily it was a direct train with very little interruptions and I was actually pleasantly surprised the journey continued till my destination!
Today, I was stuck at home. Couldn't go out for a run and couldn't go to the gym as I could neither walk nor drive in this condition. I was very frustrated. Looks like my make up job with famous Czech glamour/porn star Nella in London isn't happening tomorrow. Then I've got a number of shoots booked up in Bath and Birmingham and no one knows what's happening. I'll be very very gutted though secretly relieved cuz TBH, I'm not too sure how well the trains will be running and I sure don't want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere!
So... instead of being angry, I think I should think of the fun side of snow! BEING PHOTOGRAPHED IN THE NUDE OUT IN THE SNOW!!! Well, actually it was right before Xmas. A local tog called Lester Coates texted me one morning to ask if I fancied doing a nudey shoot outdoors. I was like, YESSS!!!! I so had to do it. If I don't, I know I'd regret it. So here I was, standing starked naked in the middle of the forest, covering up whenever I could, shivering and patiently smiling but was like "c'mon hurry up" whilst he'd leisurely switch lenses or realise his memory card was full! Did a few cute Santa hat and red bikini shoots for my Xmas theme images, then moved onto my birthday suit....
