Val’s transit pulls up outside my flat, just as I look out of the window. She leaps out of the van and rings the doorbell, but it’s somebody else’s, and it’s in another block! She obviously has the knack of using devices, just not the right ones…
Once we have located each other I put my equipment in the back of her van, and then we head off to the location, to shoot The Devices. The location is a stylish warehouse conversion with lofty ceilings, and minimal furniture. The general idea for the shoot is cleaning (with devices). We get out the vacuum cleaners and start shooting.
Once Val has finished vacuuming the face off her drummer we turn our attention to the stairs, where she dons her rubber gloves.
Seeing as the stairs have been cleaned by the daily that afternoon this doesn’t take too long. Keen to keep cleaning, Val decides to make a beeline for the bathroom. The two of them leap into the bath (a feature of my shoots of late) and get busy. They both seem to spend most of the time trying to work out how to put on their rubber gloves.
Unable to find anything else to clean in the flat we decide to change the vibe. We step into the corridor and set up a chase scene.
All in all an entertaining evening of feather dusters, cleaning products, rubber gloves, and of course, photography!
