What’s the worst commercial error you have made to date?
Forgot my charger for a shoot where I was using live view which means the battery is rinsed all day!
How did you rectify the mistake?
Took the camera off live view and Catherine (my stylist) had to look throughout he viewfinder instead!
The lessons learnt?
Always pack your camera charger and spare batteries for commercial shoots!
