Last weekend I had the good fortune to be invited as one of 4 photographers to the UK Bodypaint League's meeting in Edinburgh. Titled "Creation" it allowed the various artists to riff on the theme, with everything from galaxies to dreams, religion to horror cropping up in the final results.
The day featured 14 artists and creating their own personal ideas and a bonus model who was painted by all the artists in a creative collaboration.
I've done one or two of my own body paint shoots in the past, so I was kind of prepared for the long wait. An occasional behind the scenes photo, a chat here and there and a couple of trips for milk for tea saw me through the day.
Of course, by the end of the day we were down to the wire with the 4 photographers trying to shoot 15 models against 2 backdrops. We managed to only overrun by an hour.
The final results can be found in the gallery section of the UK BPL website
