One of the essential things we needed for the film were some nature photos to make up the lead character's portfolio; they were vital for several shots in the film and helped bring the character to life, unfortunately we had little money and a quick look around showed that as a result most good photographers weren't remotely interested in helping us out. Fortunately, persistence paid off and we eventually struck a deal with three wonderfully talented photographers who were open minded to us using some of their beautiful shots, and patient and supportive to us throughout the long development and production period. Their work appears all too briefly in the final film, so a small selection of their photos is reproduced here, all images are copyright the respective photographers, click on them to be taken to their individual websites and check out some amazing images.
