'James Knows Best'
It is 4:27pm.
I’m just north of Inverness.
It's minus 6c outside and even colder inside, because the heater was broken.
I’ve spent the last 3-hours of my life hunting for the perfect location for this evenings shoot.
The funny thing is though, ten minutes before, my youngest son James told me we had already found it.
Obviously, because I’m a man, I ignored him, he’s four!
So here we were, sunset was fast approaching and ‘Daddy knows best…’.
Turns out I was wrong though. I’d broken my own rule, the one that says we are a team and a Chinese parliament is key to success.
So I found myself returning to the best spot to shoot this sunset for a client.
Returning to the spot on the advice of a four year old. The spot we’d spent 30 minutes exploring earlier in the evening when we had ‘plenty of time’.
And boy did he let me know it! He’s a smart cookie that James.
We got the shot, no, we NAILED the shot. But better still we had some great Father and Son time at a beautiful location on the West Coast of Scotland.
iI’s not always was easy to find the ideal location for your shoot my friend, but ROAVR 100% guarantee we can help. Help you scout, help you plan, help you travel and more importantly GET THAT SHOT!
I can’t promise James will be available for location scouting though!
