Ben Towle in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, England shot by Mike Chudley
“So Ben Towle & Myself were out filming a couple of street clips around 11pm the night before this photo, he was sending up a few hop whips flat ground and I shot a few but they had horrible lighting and the location was poor (Scunthorpe) so we got talking about perfect locations to shoot a photo and we both thought about the Humber Bridge. It’s only a 20 minute drive from where we live so that is pretty convenient. We figured the best time of day to shoot the photo would be really early in the morning so natural lighting was good enough but the roads weren’t too busy. After we pictured what we wanted it to look like we just thought we may as well just go do it in 5 hours’ time at 4am when the sun rises. We headed down, I got various different photos but the main one we pictured came out perfectly, so yeah not much else to it. I must give Ben credit for sending about 50 hop whips so I could get the perfect photo haha.
