It was a complete pleasure to photograph at First Focus recently as a commission from The Fakenham Beacon for publication in their June 2017 issue. First Focus does such a valuable job and is run with such dedication that it deserves all the exposure and plaudits it gets. Thank you to all the members of First Focus who allowed me to photograph then and to manager April Simnor for her enthusiastic support.
It was great to be asked to update the photos for Fakenham’s private hire, chauffeur and wedding service, Near and Far. I’d taken the original photos for Chris’s website and publicity material but now that Chris has updated his car, he needed some more. We used the same location and repeated a number of the previous shots as Chris had been so pleased with them. The car is magnificent!
I got to know lovely burlesque performer Yippee IKay a couple of years ago and I’m now pleased to say that she’s a friend as well as a wonderful talent! Yippee came to the studio recently for a shoot and we were lucky enough (with the weather) to do both some inside and outside shots of a couple of her routines, which she will be using for promotion and to send to castings. At the end of the shoot we had a little time left just to have some fun taking pictures with some of her fantastic clothing and props.
I have done lots of work over the last few years for Bridget Mitchell (aka ARCA Preservation), Helhoughton based professional conservator and bespoke box maker – sixteen or so shoots recording her lovely work at the last count. The images, in a variety of sizes, are for her publicity and towards building her website in due course.
It was a pleasure to be asked to photograph Victory Cottage in Little Walsingham recently. It is a new build cottage that is being let out for holidays, and it has been decorated and then dressed by it’s owners immaculately. It’s a very grown up place to chill and unwind on holiday and of course it’s set in a very picturesque and unique Norfolk village (which definitely justified a few extra pics), so what’s not to like? Photos will be used on the owners new website in due course.
I regularly undertake PR and press photography for a range of clients, either directly at the client’s request or via their marketing agency. My latest job was photographing David ‘Kid’ Jensen, a 1970’s/80’s Top of the Pops DJ and radio ‘legend’ who was visiting The Fabulous Showboat family entertainment centre in Hunstanton to broadcast live on its customer radio station, Jackpot FM. It was a pleasure working with the team from the Showboat and the guys from Jackpot FM, and it was a very smooth process working with Marta at Source Communications who was publicising the story. The Lynn News picked it up as did the parent company Praesepe plc on their website (click the links for the stories).
Toastmaster Nigel, who is based in Swaffham (and is also the Swaffham Town Crier!), needed some photos for publicity. Fortunately, he could swing us using Strattons Hotel as the backdrop for the photos, so… we had a great subject (tick!), a great venue (tick!) and great weather (tick!). What more do you need for a great set of photos (double tick!)… Nigel’s new website, soon to be launched, is at www.toastmasternigel.co.uk, so do yourself a favour if you’re getting married and give him a looksee. As he says, he might just save your day!
