May '14 News

May '14 news by Claire Wood Photography
I’ve been surprisingly busy after my return from maternity leave and it’s been nice to be working again.  It’s reminded me how lucky I am to be doing a job I love, to be visiting amazing and diverse places and meeting really interesting people.

This May ’14 news takes us back to last April when I had the pleasure to photograph Michelle Hardwick who plays Vanessa in Emmerdale. Then off to BBC Media City to photograph Becky Meehan on the set of North West Tonight. It was a real treat to go behind the scenes at the new studios and Becky was very easy to photograph.

Fabulous magazine commissioned me to photograph Lianna for their ‘It happened to me’ feature. This amazing lady not only owns her own funeral company but also offers grief counselling, cosmetology services and can also conduct the service.

This shoot for Prima very nearly didn’t happen as poor Carmen, on the right, slipped on the ice and broke her foot the day before! Unable to make it up the stairs to the studio and even unable to stand much at all, daughter Sophie allowed me to turn her kitchen upside down and into a pink studio. They were proper troopers to carry on!

I received a very warm welcome at BBC Radio Merseyside to renew their presenter portraits and they have got some fantastic characters, Billy Butler, Billy Maher and Frankie Connor being only three of them. A very enjoyable day.

POP (Partners of Prisoners) is an organisation that helps to provide invaluable support for offenders partners in order to keep families together. I photographed Debbie who works at POP for Woman magazine to coincide with the new TV series of Prisoners Wives.

Another ‘It happened to me’ shoot for Fabulous magazine featuring Karen Woods who has written over 30 novels. Her success is made even more amazing because Karen only learnt to read at age 39!

A lovely morning photographing Chelsea Halfpenny from Emmerdale who brought along her eclectic wardrobe for us to route through for this S magazine closet shoot in Leeds.

That’s all for now, the next news will be along in July. Have fun in the sunshine.
