Recently I had a fashion shoot with my regular client GlamOnYou; a luxury fashion house based in Dubai. As it was the recent collection of exquisite resort and beachwear we had to shoot it outdoors. And mid-May is, for this region, already quite challenging for outdoor shoots. Soaring temperatures close to 40° Celsius are not great for the model and the whole team, including me and my assistant. Also, my external strobes denied their support due to overheating. Luckily I always have spare strobes with me.

I have never faced a shut-down with any of my Canon gear due to the heat. Similarly, during freezing winter outdoor shoots I have never experienced any equipment failure; the batteries get empty a bit faster than usual but, for this, I always have plenty of them with me and keep them warm in my pockets.

I think I have challenged my equipment in quite a wide range of climates: from very humid and scorching 40° plus Celsius down to freezing -25° Celsius my various Canon [camera] bodies have always worked fine, just like in studio conditions. But I'm now happy to shoot indoors for the next few weeks in the Middle East!
