Image of the week…chalky white birch

24th December 2021

Chalky white birch trees always seduce me. This was a favourite nook in the forest. The sunken fern swallowed my feet as we lurched through to find a spot. I shot with haste as the light threatened to exit. Max has an infectious, bouncy energy and seems to run rather than walk anywhere. We decided to recreate one of my favourite tales that will feature in this work about a village man who tricks his neighbours. He howls through a watering can which Max skilfully mimicked taking on the role of a moose with dedication and gusto. Mid shoot we took a break and I threw him an apple as I changed roll.

Looking forward to playing more soon Max. OAO x
