Me and Rom picked the worst day to do an outdoor shoot. We had to keep the gals inside cars until the last minute because the 50 kmh winds made their hair and makeup look like they'd just woke up after a drunken night on the town.We had to change the concept a little since there was no way we'd get a glamour shot, so we went for a kind of David Lynch/Steven Klein thing. We used 4 bare 580EXII's since there was no way to put a brolly up. Even then I had 2 flashes hit the concrete from the stands being blown over. We tried in vain to fire a flash through a scrim but it was like a kite, and nearly dragged the wardrobe girl across town. Next time we'll check the weather report.
Brendan O'Shea spent 20 years as a musician, spending most of his time in Canada, the USA and Japan working with some of the world's great musicians. When kids came along, it was suddenly time to grow up and get a "real" job. So it was off to Swinburne Uni followed by a career in design and photography. Music production still plays a major role in his professional and personal life. He also prefers to speak in the third person.
