These are four photos of an assignment at Uni. I had to tell the biography of another person through 4 photographs.
So i introduce Robbie Greenaway. Some what of an action man extraordinaire.
Trial Rider. Taken on the Cliffs at Gynn Square, Promenade, Blackpool. This was possibly the most fun out of all the shoots, but certainly the most challenging too. The slightest slip from either of us and we were tumbling down the rock face. We both had moments where we nearly found out the hard way.

Basketball. Robbie is also a brilliant basketball player, though i must admit he does look more like a model in this shot.
Strobist: Bowens 500 flash heads at 45 degrees either side of subject, Bowens 500 with beauty dish, above and camera right.
Mental Mechanic. As well as sporting activities, Robbie is also a bit of a Mini enthusiast. Here we see him curse at his beloved Mini Clubman, in an attempt to get it working. Moments later he simply flipped, standing and jumping on the poor car.
Strobist: SB 800, in engine bay of car aimed at face, Cactus KF-36, camera right, filling in the back of subject.
Basketball part 2. To prove he can actually play, i included an action shot. This was also a fun shoot, but quite difficult thanks to my camera having an apparent magnetic field with the ball. After each shot i would have to roll over and to protect the camera before the ball would hit. Also made slightly more difficult by some big shot who kept coming over too. But hey these are things that i'm going to have to deal with in future.
