Complex fashion shoot originally planned for one male and one female model plus lifestyle images and packshots (white background to Amazon standards) not helped by slow communications from the client and the very late non-availability of the original male model and a COVID non-attendance problem of his replacement.  Eventually shot both a late replacement male and then managed to get the original male model back for a brief reshoot.

Met the client's brief precisely and cannot understand the lower-than-normal rating the client has provided.  The client has given no explanation and has since the published the photos on their website.

Working with three female models, a child model and a canine model this work was to be used on Amazon by the client.  I think it is a compliment that these images are amongst the most plagiarised, copied and stolen images on Amazon in the past five years.

Not one photo but six, thanks to the incredible post-production of a guy called Kimipoi in the Philippines on freelancer.com.

The communication process was good. The result wasn't as expected but I can understand the difficulty in shooting without us being on set. Overall the result is ok.

Barney could never do enough to make the various aspects come together. He was relentless in securing models, addressing any issues and then doing the photos in the studio and on location and editing with ghost mannequin photos as well. He was always polite and personable. The fee seemed too low for the work he put in and I was always amazed at how much he did. It turned out that it was, in fact, more than the quote but that makes sense.Highly recommended!
