Rhian Evans Harpist
I first met Rhian at a wedding fayre a couple of years ago. Her harp playing is amazing and easily the best that I’ve heard and I’ve seen quite a few harpists at weddings and wedding fayres. My good friends at Social Progress mentioned to me that Rhian wanted some pictures for her new website (coming soon) and obviously they pointed her in my direction.
Rhian wanted a shoot that was a little different and eye catching so what could we do. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find my white background (joking). We both live in Meltham which is a stunning part of the world so we decided to head to the moors at sunset. The heather is out now and the hills look beautiful so it was a no brainer.
What could be easier than heading to the moors on an evening with loads of camera equipment and a vintage harp? Quite a lot it seems, harps are very heavy, they don’t like wet, cold, moist or mud which added to the fun. The first location I found was stunning, it had so much heather, however it was a little muddy, I even lost my shoe for a few minutes and it took some pulling to get it out. Rhian wasn’t comfortable with the location which was very understandable.
For the second location, we headed to Wessenden Head where we found a smaller patch of heather but the ground was much firmer so perfect for the shoot. After a bit of lugging equipment and the harp we found our location and managed to get the shots. I’m sure they will look fab on Rhian’s new website and social media.
If you know anyone else who wants something a little bit different then pass them my details.
