Apart from two weeks earlier in the year, the spring weather had not been kind in my part of the world. Yet, when model Adele, makeup artist Helen and I got together the day before the summer solstice, summer arrived for just one day with blue skies, beautiful sunshine and a few happy, white clouds. I am convinced that this is not a coincidence – the weather gods must have been smiling upon us.
The photograph, which will represent summer at Wolf Kettler Photographer, is one of a series that I made in one of the most beautiful locations in my area, Oliver’s Castle on Roundway Hill. There is no trickery involved in this photograph. The model really is flying. Proof that the right blend of talents will produce good results.
The model, Adele Silver, is a professional, classically trained dancer. She was the winner of a modelling competition that I ran earlier this year and that attracted hundreds of entries. Adele will be seen by approximately 90,000 visitors to my website over the next three months.
