New Sainsbury Superstore in Helston, Cornwall

A brand new Sainsbury’s Superstore opens in Helston, Cornwall on 14th July 2010. My time slot to get as many shots as I can for the Architect’s is 6.00am until 8.00am. They have given me a very long list and guess what, it has only just stopped raining but I am hopeful, the forecast is good, though only for the morning. I know the early morning light (when the rain stopped!) would be coming directly from behind the building. In fact I don’t think I could choose a sun angle any worse! Why don’t these building designer’s think about this stuff when they employ a photographer!!

Anyway I get on quickly with the job in hand. You might think a time slot that early would give me free access to many completed areas. There are no electricians in high vis, up ladders with trailing cables I very often find myself sorting the photos in post processing. Just manic Sainsbury’s staff busily preparing the Store for opening in a few hours. The Press are coming, other dignitaries and Sainsbury’s brass so I am going to just have to work with what I have got. I don’t like sterile what I call ‘Old School’ architectural shots anyway which is a good job because they are few and far between today!

I was able to capture 30 or 40 high resolution shots for my client before it started raining again. This is summer for goodness sake, but then again it is Cornwall.
