Summer Photography Day 2012 update….

Wanted to share a selection of photographs from the Summer 2012 Photography Day.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect – warm, bright but no direct sunlight. We had the french doors open to the Rushbrook room, which was our meet & greet/studio area and for walking into the beautiful gardens at the Heritage Well Being Centre at Nowton Court.

The feedback has been very positive from both commercial and personal customers alike. It was within easy reach of Bury, so business clients could pop out, have their shots done and back with little fuss. Someone even commented they found it less stressful… perhaps that has something to do with the lovely calm atmosphere there is at the Centre.

My challenge was to keep to my schedule, so as not to overun with each clients allotted slot!

The next morning I received an email from one of my attendees, thanking me for the shoot, as her children had thoroughly enjoyed themselves and her youngest (3yrs) had asked “can the picture man with the white sirt come and play with me today mummy?” – he was of course referring to my partner and very good assistant, who helps me get the children engaged and focused on something other than me (behind the camera) until I need their attention.

It is definitely a day I will consider repeating and if you know anyone this would be of interest to, please do get in touch and I can keep people posted for the next one.









Suffolk Young Enterprise Business Awards 2012

So at the beginning of this month I spent a day at the Ipswich University Campus for the Suffolk Young Enterprise Business Awards 2012. There were 8 competing schools all enduring some rigourous judging. Competing were:

Ipswich High School for girls
East Bergholt High School
Woodbridge High School (had two groups taking part)
Kesgrave High School
St Joseph’s College, Ipswich
Thomas Mills High School, Framlingham
Farlingaye High School

Each group had a display stand in the University Foyer and were interviewed separately by a panel of four judges. This was followed by Power Point presentations from each school, about their business in the large auditorium area upstairs. The judges then retired to consult and put together their marks, for the fifteen different awards, with the overall winners for consistency throughout going to Thomas Mills High School.

Throughout the day and evening, I captured the stands, interviews, presentation and finally awards.

The East Anglian Daily Times featured a brilliant double page spread on the competition in Tuesday 22nd May, business suppliment, printing all of the following photographs:
