A Harris Hawk in flight… What a fantastic first shoot for the new studio!
It was great to welcome Robert and his incredible friend Freyja the hawk back. This time though we had all the space needed to nail the shot that I couldn’t achieve last year in our previous studio.
After capturing some beautiful animal portraits of this magnificent hawk a year ago I was desperate to try a shot of her in flight. Between Robert and I we calculated the best way to achieve this and I devised a lighting setup that would light Freyja from the front but also backlight through the wings. You can see the setup in the video.
I’m over the moon with the resulting image and also extremely pleased that this new space allows myself and the team to work on even more creative and dynamic images going forwards.
If you haven’t seen the new studio check out some of the images below and keep in mind that we will be running some exclusive new professional workshops in 2015, stay tuned for more details soon.
I hope you enjoy the video and final image.
