For some time I had wanted to work with Bethany, and I finally managed to arrange a shoot with her at the end of April. On the day I was not hopeful of a good weather as there had been several days of poor weather and the forecast was not good, so it was more in hope that I set off for Oxford to meet with Bethany. As usual the traffic in Oxford was dire and I had to keep a sharp eye out for Traffic Wardens, as I was not going to pay to park for a few minutes as I waited in St. Giles, the agreed meeting place. Bethany finally arrived and we set off for Great Coxwell to start the shoot.
On arrival at Great Coxwell I made a beeline for the Tithe Barn, as this was my choice for the first location of the day. It was cold and windy and this was not going to be a good location to work from, so after a few shots I decided to move on and as it was so windy I decided that we would be more comfortable and warmer working from my home.
After a hot drink, we got down to doing more photos in my garden making the most of the variety of mini locations within it including a couple of garden seats and a nicely textured wall at the end of the outbuildings that house my original darkroom. The last few photos that I took were of Bethany’s tattoos before we set off back to Oxford. We did manage to avoid rain showers through the shoot, just a pity that the sun did not put in an appearance.
