Roger KayaKid - The Kayaker

The second shoot with Roger

For the second time I have had the pleasure of doing a portrait shoot with Roger KayaKid Raknes. You can read here about the first shoot I did with him.

Once again I packed for a major outdoor shoot that contains my location lights from Profoto with softboxes and a lot of other light shaping tools. I am very happy with this gear that I was introduced to by the amazing English photographer Emile Holba, and that makes me able to do very advanced light settings in an outdoor environment and not in a studio. Then I can take advantage of the ambient light in addition to having total control of how I want the light to appear on the model.

Perfect conditions for a cool shoot

The weather forecast for the evening was promising with a lot of dramatic clouds. I was, however, a little bit anxious on location if it was going to start raining. We could see some lightning in the distance. To clear the equipment from the shooting location takes a good 25 minutes and I didn't want anything to get wet. But we were ok.

Roger is a real professional and he is totally cool to play around and work with, making it easy to do some really cool shots. What do you think?
