The perils of shooting on outdoor location.Parking my car over a wasps nest yesterday.Myself and model disturbing hornets nest on another shoot.
Just a general warning about what can happen.Check location before you start shooting.
No doubt someone will make a comment about using a studio instead.Thats not the point, my work is centred on outdoor work.And the little blighters can get indoors as well.

I appreciate this thread and the advice.

I always do a H & S assessment before-hand but had not thought of this - particularly as I intend to shoot out-doors much more soon.

Relax, take it easy and float down-stream with the Sandy Camel

I have found burning large citronella candles outside keeps most flying insects away. - Be careful not to set fire to the location.

With a name like IRONBLOKEMAN you are afraid of a few wasps and hornets.

I'm not afraid of them.These were swarms not individuals.The models had a lot more exposed flesh than me.I always put the welfare of my models first.For myself the last time I was stung my arm swelled up massively and I suffered a fit.

Good advice! And trust me, you can end up in hospital from just one wasp sting!
