This was far from a normal photoshoot! Down on the farm, courtesy of Sarah (award-winning pedigree Hereford breeder), we were joined by amazing Oxford model, Camilla Ackrill. My idea was to capture glamour totally out of place. Although Sarah's farm is so clean and tidy that the shoot was more 'makeup' than 'manure'!
The other idea was Sarah's - she has trained Biggles the bull to allow her to sit on his back side-saddle style (pictures to follow soon). So Biggles was washed, shampooed and blow-dried while Millie was in makeup with the very clever Victoria Russell.
Luckily the sun came out, but the breeze was quite chilly - especially for someone wearing only a thin dress. Millie was a real star!
The team was completed by my colleague, Kate Murrell who styled the shots. So all I had to do was press the shutter; watch the light; and keep an eye on Millie's pose hoping she wasn't too chilly; watch Sarah's position; oh and hope Biggles behaved which he did wonderfully.
This was probably the most fun shoot I have ever done. Thanks team!
