Earlier this year we visited the house in Bromsgrove to photograph the Stiltz homelift installation. Until last night all our pictures were under BBC embargo, but now the programme has aired we can finally show them. 28 year old Karis was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a baby. She still lived with her mum Karen, who’s own health was deteriorating and was making caring for Karis almost impossible. Older sister Jo was desperate to give Karis a new home, but her house was wholly inaccessible as the doors and corridors were too narrow for a wheelchair and there was no easy access to upstairs. To avoid Karis having to go into a residential home Jo’s house had to be completely remodelled by Nick Knowles and the team. Needless to say Karis and her family were absolute joy to work with and it was a pleasure to see how the DIY SOS project – and in particular the Stiltz homelift – has changed the family’s life.
It’s the 22nd September and a bright a chilly morning for our group photo of no less than 150 graduates taking part in British American Tobacco’s Grad Academy training programme. And yes, (almost) everyone is looking at the camera !
A brief round of applause please for this ever-patient lady who has stood in for more lighting checks than I could even begin to remember….
Lovely weather for GCSE Results Day !
Zoe and Sophie from Churcher’s College in Petersfield each achieved 10 x Level 9 – only 837 nationally did that !
Sorting through and updating folio images today I came across this shot of actor Dexter Fletcher, who took over directing duties from Bryan Singer on “Bohemian Rhapsody” and has just directed the Elton John biopic “Rocketman”
Recent shoot for a lighting controls client in the Dyson Building at Imperial College London.
The brief was to capture the application of their environmental lighting control system, in particular to illustrate the system’s ability to balance between daylight and artificial light levels in the public areas of the building. Careful light and colour temperature balancing was required throughout to ensure that the client ended up with exactly the images they needed for promotion in industry publications.
Had the pleasure of meeting and photographing these amazing young apprentices last week as par of an ongoing programme for East Hants District Council’s Economic Development Team.
These young people are getting on-the-job training as estate agents, electronics engineers, paralegals and joiners. What a great way to kick-start a career !
Challenging conditions inside the Chinook Mk6 Synthetic Flight Training Simulator at RAF Odiham today. Very low light levels and a lot of vibration.
Grateful that we packed one of our small #Manfrotto LED lights to fill in as using flash was out of the question !
Taken at today’s Remembrance Sunday service in Petersfield, where the young and the old came out together to remember…
