Kat is a tremendously fun model to work with. She’s cheerful and smart and loves to be outdoors. Our adventure in an active quarry was sure to be great.

We didn’t know what we’d find when we scouted the derelict ends of the site, but when we found these spiral-lined tubes, we knew they had potential. Putting Kat inside them was an obvious plan. Less obvious was the rust and dust. Everything we touched felt like it was covered in fine sand, with added tetanus. But Kat soldiered through it with only a tiny amount of ceaseless complaining.

The tall grass is a favourite with Ero-Sky. As the sun goes down the tips light up, and you would never know we were shooting between enormous, silent industrial machinery and a swamp that was surely horrifyingly toxic.

And finally, the scene we’d come out here for: a glorious sunset behind a scary looking swamp that would probably melt the skin off your bones. Sure, it was full of wild birds, and they seemed happy enough, but maybe they were cavorting in pain, singing love-songs of agony and feather-melting despair. We decided against putting Kat in the water, but it was still treacherous going. What seemed like solid ground would break underfoot, and we all left increasingly deep footprints in the coal-black sludge beneath the surface.

We were shooting in mid winter, which is warm enough during the day. But as the sun went down the wind picked up, and it became very cold. Kat suffered bravely but did not hesitate a single heartbeat when we decided it was time to put clothes on again.

It was an incredible shoot, all the more rewarding when we all went home without being poisoned or immersed in life threatening toxins.
