The location chosen by the Anatomic team was Colesdale Farm in Cuffley, not far from Potters Bar, Herts. For the day we had access to a small wooden cabin which was used as our base as well as shooting a few images inside! Surrounding the cabin was a large pond, with stables and lots of fields!

With the log cabin set up as our base it kept all equipment, clothes, accessories and of course the shoes dry on what was a day of very changeable weather conditions.

Gathering ideas together from around the area where some locals came to say hello…

Our photographers always go the extra mile to get the perfect shot, even when it means laying down in long wet grass or being nudged off a fence by the local donkeys, safe to say they were ready for their portrait!

 

One way of drying out from the rain…
