Luck Favours the Prepared

This is the first image in a whole bunch of stuff I shot a week or two ago - I haven't done more than edit and start to scan in the film (shot both film and digital on this one)
The title was 'Luck Favours the Prepared' and it's about the themes of children performing. I think we got some really good stuff. More to come.

Nice work Alastair! What are you're plans for these pics... self-promos, stock?

Self-promos for sure - I have to keep producing material no matter how the economy is - Everyone seems to know my name but they still don't necessarily think of me when they're hiring. However, I look forward to that changing.
And I'll submit them to Corbis, too. The last one I did (last year) didn't sell nearly as well as I would have expected, but maybe these will do well. Who knows?

It was great to just get out and shoot, though. I can't recommend it enough to anyone who feels stuck in a rut.

Great work! I have a tee shirt, with a great logo on it; Live to Shoot- Shoot to Live! Kind of sums up our existence.
Cheers,
Peter
