Never work with animals or children

This remains one of my favourite child portrait photography shoots. The client Caroline came to me asking for a shot of her naked toddler’s butt with a chicken. She’d seen something like that somehwere around the place before and just had to have one. I replied that if she could source a chicken I could do it. So armed with 2 kids, an orange chicken, a Stunt Chicken in case chicken no 1 refused to play ball and a dachshund I set up an outdoor studio and started shooting. Caroline proved to be an extremely talented chicken handler and it all went strangely smoothly. Of course we did not leave out her eldest son, and got a great shot of him with Babs the dachshund.
