19 Oct ’08, Sunday. Registration is still open.

The folks at the ole agency paprika gave me a ring one day for a chance to shoot the ad for this year’s New Balance Real Run. The idea was simple and all I had to do was to click the shutter in sunny weather, or so I thought.

The client did an awesome job of getting us access into the Changi grounds of the actual run which really helped with getting the location we wanted. I woke up to thunder and the heavens pouring on the morning of the shoot – Great, someone must’ve said the ‘R’ word. We arrived at the carpark with the sky clearing – ‘Yahoo!’ I thought. We were then accompanied by Police land rovers that brought us into the dirt tracks, where we bruised our butts from the uneven terrain in the 4×4.

We found our spot, set up shop and oiled our talent’s shins when the pitter patter of rain started again – ‘Frak you murphy!’. We pushed on in the drizzle and in between hiding in the rover checking the shots and laying on the muddied sand, we eventually got what we wanted.

Stressin – Damn rain!

    Yeah, it was I think July just before reservist.

    That was just a shot of the test shot, we used mats later which brought much comfort to the skinny elbows.

    Ahhh… so this was the photo shoot you mentioned sometime back.

    Talk about ‘suffering’ for your craft… elbows on sand/gravel. Yowzer.
