Centrality on the move.

A company on the move in the right direction, Centrality have gone from strength to strength over the last few years. I was lucky to be involved capturing the images for their recent website revamp. The staff were all very welcoming and the facility is nicely tucked away in the country.

Head for heights....again!

A Charity Abseil at Octavia Livings Elizabeth House with both Octavia and Willmott Dixon staff taking the plunge was a hot event....literally.

Roped to the roof in baking 30 degrees and kneeling over the edge on melting roof felt for four hours. Not your normal Saturday, but witnessing the looks of fear then achievement on everyone's face (well nearly everyone's) kept me going. They all managed to overcome their fears with even a few children of the staff bravely taking the plunge.

The views across Wembley were dramatic, and the view down onto the London city traffic 130' below was also not for those with acrophobia.

Apologies to Rachel, but the cheesy nervous grin just makes me smile when I see it and I had to put it in! ;0)

Again a big well done to all those who were both involved in setting up the event and those participating.

New Challenge...old client!

Photography to some companies is not a frequent event, only done on the odd occasion to help market new products or develop a new images and website.

Recently a client that I had worked for many years ago requested an update to their image library for urgent brochures and web use. The company had grown beyond recognition and was a hive of technically activity....mostly lost on me! It however allow for some great product and production images.

There facilities and product diversity are expanding all the time. Already we have been back to shoot more products, although we can't show you many images as there products are often hush, hush!

Recent Projects.....

Over the last few months we have been lucky to be both busy but also welcoming new clients to Studio MK. Not only this but it was also a pleasure to see a couple of clients we had not heard from in a while back requesting more imagery.

The projects varied from a fantastic five days working for the ECB/ICC at the ICC Champions Trophy - cricket matches for those not into willow & leather! This was fun on two counts, lots of frantic days traveling between grounds and setting up lighting and printing etc, but mainly the fun
people I met both staff and guests.

Those who are into cricket would have loved the sense of involvement that working at these events gave. Even getting to see close up several teams/players - even a certain Mr Lara!
