The production company we work with in Iceland is the lead operator in the country - True North. Their client roster is a tour de; force of movie studios in Hollywood and we fully acknowledge that photographs such as Punk would not be possible without; them. It is not as if we can turn up at the Glacial lagoon in Jokulsarlon two hours before sunset and hope that one of the most; aesthetically blessed horses in the country will be charging towards us through the water and ice. The odds of that are long.; But even when some things are assured, there is work to be done. To create the mood I was looking for, I needed to match the; horse's dynamism with an ethereal serenity, which is not easy as action images tend to work against a state of calm.; I knew I was going to get wet, as my position had to be at ground level. Any elevated position would be immediately obvious and; the sense of immersion would be gone. I also wanted as much depth of field as possible to amplify the sense of place, but we had; a good amount of light to work with, albeit with the setting sun at 11am. Nevertheless, the "execution of idea" risk was material,; even with the best Nikon gear.; The horse's head makes the image - adding fire and energy to the arctic backdrop. Horses are easy to photograph and are over; photographed, but I have not seen many images like this.
