Sock it to me !

It’s November. The weather has been terrible and we have socks to photograph. I foolishly suggest the “socks on the line on a sunny day” shot would be a nice addition to my client’s website. She says yes. I then realise that am now totally dependent on the weather. But what’s this ? On the morning we’re ensconced in the studio the sun suddenly comes out ! We grab the products, some clothes pegs and a length of line and rush outside. We grab the shot and 20 mins later it starts pouring with rain again…

It’s only rock n’ roll…

Busy scanning hundreds of transparencies for library stock when I came across this shot of Rick Wakeman, taken during a video shoot at Fountain Studios in New Malden in the late 80’s.
