100 Models in one afternoon

Things have been hectic here - I've several shoots which I am itching to share with you, but have to wait until they have been published first.

Last week I was asked to shoot 50 models as part of a casting for the big-name client of a big-name photographer (yes, it's all very hush-hush til the campaign is live, but that's how it is). It turned out that someone got a litte over-zealous with sending us models.... we ended up having 100 girls to cast. Double what we expected. We had one arrive late, but where's the fun in only shooting 99 models when 100 sounds so much better? Of course we squeezed the last model in before packing up.

An interesting challenge, but one I am very pleased to say we met without breaking a sweat. By running a tight ship we were able to do the full casting and review the images with the client on-site, all in time to get home before the sun started to set!

To give you an idea of the scale, the above image is a contact sheet of 50 images. We shot twice as many girls as in the image (each girl in various poses too).
