Rock climbing photoshoot and location scouting in Sussex
Climbing photoshoot at Stone Farm Rocks in Sussex

In 2009 we were commissioned by Jessica Vanderweert to provide a location safety, training and equipment for a photo shoot she was working on for the Department for Work and Pensions.

They wanted to shoot in Sussex and have a good vista in the background so we suggested Stone Farm Rocks. It was a simple enough set up and the shoot was about pensioners being out and active so rock climbing was part of a series of activities they were portraying.
