I’d like to wish you all fabulous Christmas and I hope you all get the chance to have a nice rest and put your feet up over the festive break. I’m having a quiet month so I’m finally on top of all my paperwork and I’ve even had time to move the office furniture around and do a bit of dusting… (bored now, please phone!). Last June was a different story so I have plenty to tell you about. We start with a delightful shoot for Cosmo with Danielle and Matthew who fell in love over the Internet even though they lived on opposite sides of the Atlantic….bless!
It was a pleasure to meet and photograph Louisa and her daughter Jolie for Woman magazine. Louisa is living with Multiple Sclerosis but maintains a very positive approach to life preferring to focus on what she can do, rather than what she cannot.
I was invited to the in-store bakery to photograph Mark at work for the ‘who grows it’ page of Asda magazine. Not the usual outdoor rural location this page is used to, however with a little re-arranging we managed to make quite a large scale bakery look warm and cosy.
It was great fun to go behind the scenes with Cosmopolitan magazine, at Manchester’s X Factor to photograph Beth Hart. Beth is the senior executive producer, what a fabulous job! Walking into the venue, past the crowds of potential stars I somehow got mistaken for Jedward – how rude! It must have been the wind making my hair fly skywards? (or my electric blue suit).
My second visit to the Alexander hospital, this time to photograph the Cardio Vascular team for their new website.
Stephen Martin, who is the chief executive of Clugston, was a lovely man to photograph for Business Agenda and was very relaxed and enthusiastic. Stephen appeared on ‘Undercover Boss’ a few years back so he’s probably used to the limelight!
Lastly a tongue in cheek photo shoot now, for an article on ‘hormonal women’ for Femail. Martina Mercer, who runs a successful copy-writing business talked about all the crazy things she has done in the past while under the influence of hormones!
That’s all for now – see you in the New Year! xx
