This was my most highly anticipated shoot of the summer. Conflicting agendas and bad weather were the main cause of the failure but a better photographer should have still been able to pull something out of those circumstances. I guess I’m just not there yet and this trip was a real eye opener.

In order to learn from my failure, I wrote out a 12 point guideline for a successful photo shoot. I had plenty of time to write on the 3 hour ferry ride bake to the States. It’s a 2 page document and it will go thru many edits as I move forward but hopefully it will serve to help in not make the same mistakes again.
