Sometimes, when working as a professional photographer, Norwich weather tends to dictate how I approach a photoshoot. As much as I love the occasional windy or rainy day it can impact on an organised event and throw even the most straightforward of shoots into complete confusion.
Of course, the same is true of conditions no matter where you are in the world with a fine example being provided by this series of photos which were taken in Latvia's capital city of Riga.
Not just the weather was against me on this occasion as I was surrounded by several tower blocks with very little in the way of natural light from where to compose a suitable setting.
In order to make the most of the day I used a collection of flashguns to imitate a warm atmosphere as well as choosing just the right angles so as to provide a green and inviting backdrop.
It's challenges like these that make my life interesting as a professional photographer. Norwich, Riga or wherever I find myself, I need to make the best of the surroundings and conditions in order to accentuate the positives that lie behind every photograph.
If you'd like to put me to the test then please don't hesitate to get in touch as, come rain or shine, I'll be there to help you capture a moment no matter what the day brings.
