Winter doesn't have to be a non-starter for location photography. In fact, the flat light and low sun (if it's around) can often be used to advantage. I usually get everyone to have a good run-around to warm up and keep any goose bumps at bay. I caught up with this lovely family again after doing a shoot for them in London about ten years ago. They had since spent time in the far east and the oriental terracotta figure made a great prop! The snowdrops were just appearing in the garden of their new home in the country and there was an out house with lovely top shade, as well as a fine old tree for a back drop - plenty to work with on a flat February day. Queensberry made a beautiful black leather matted album.
