The genesis for this workshop came out of the blue when I received an email from an American model Brynn Cook who was visiting New Zealand and basically funding part of her trip by doing shoots on the weekend. Now I do not normally pay for models, but Brynn was stunning and I thought it was a great opportunity to organise a group shoot with a number of others.

In the end 5 photographers took part. I took the role of co-ordinator/timekeeper so that everyone had a fair run at the lights.

Brynn was an absolute professional and helped put the others with suggested poses.

What was really funny was that when we started I thought I would have to cast lots to select the order as I had assumed everyone would want to go first. In fact the opposite happened and I had to choose the order.
