Well some days for a photographer can start very early, and on this day in question my time to be at the location was 6:30am so there for my day started at 5am, most self respecting persons are still asleep at this time of day, except if your a baker, little did I know when the PR department contacted me who handle David Jones events would later reveal the media call.
With a hot coffee in hand I wandered down Burke Street in the Melbourne CBD, like what I see at times on Film Sets there was a commotion of people, vehicles and some general public (wanting an early bargain) After making my presence known with the Public Relations persons on site, I took up a good spot on the Media Riser and entertained myself until Megan Gale arrived.
The key shot for the day was the “ringing” of the bell which I obtained a nice candid shot of Megan full of laughs as the resounding bell was heard, almost deafening Megan in the process. Shortly after we were lead into the store before customers were allowed in so that we could get crowd shots and some more promotion photos with Megan Gale, I have to admit that I don’t think I look that good posing for a bargain, but then I gather thats why stores have flagship models to represent there companies.
