Anna Watkins Rower

The images used in this blog are not the ones I will be using for the final show, they are alternates used basically because it seems daft to have a photography blog without images.

I shot Anna’s hands on the Thames at Henley. She has very beautiful hands and it’s going to be tough to choose the final image as there are two completely different ones that I love equally. Listening to her talk about her medal winning race was a joy, her enthusiasm, passion and knowledge are formidable. We shot one image by the water and another in the boat yard, where we had to move a boat into the right position. You’d be amazed at how light the boats are, I thought they’d blow away in the wind.
