40 degree's & 70% humidity…not the easiest conditions to work in.
The UAE can get hot as the we start getting into the summer, with temps soon hitting 50 degree's C it can be imposible to work outside, in fact when the temps get to a level it is goverment mandated that you don't work outside for the three hours at midday, unless it is of course a safety issue or cannot otherwise be re-scheduled.
I have been shooting an exciting commission for a business involved in refining and energy distrubution in the UAE & worldwide, and to say there were challenging days is an understatement, when it's so hot even simple things like seeing through the viewfinder through the stream of perspiration running into your eyes and having powerpacks go into 'thermal protection' mode because the ground is so hot all add's to the fun.
But..it's not about me..I just want to thank all the people who stood for the pictures while their boots were filling up with sweat..helped to carry a bag..and every Toyota Hilux pick up with air con.
The only thing anyone will remember from the shoot are the images, not the struggle to get them. The new work will be on the website later in the year once we have visited the other locations worldwide.
