It's rather late in arriving but I've been compiling a 'favourites' folder from 2013 for a while. Looking back and forward is a little luxury at this time of year and I can hardly believe how quickly this year has gone. Sadly I was without a camera for my trip to France in the summer, but other than that I've had a ball!
Time with Ullswater Community College
I have had the privilege of spending time at UCC photographing many of their events. Once again, I was able to see and shoot the A-Level art exhibition which included the light shell on the magazine page above, which was a particular favourite (you can see the shell in action in the footage we shot in the second part of this mini-film). It's also been a pleasure to photograph productions and devised pieces from the Drama department - much is due to Jane Reardon (pictured), who has left this term. One of the true highlights of the year was the visit of actor John Hurt to the school to launch the Branch Out reading event - what an honour and a truly lovely man.
Brilliant work from the students at Eden Boutique Hair Salon
It was almost impossible to choose a few for this blog from the session - a larger selection were put in May.
Some travels and wildlife
Time with some wonderful people
It's been a great year - thank you to everyone who has been a part of it!
It was a privilege to be organising and photographing at the Branch Out 2013 reading competition - launched by the wonderful John Hurt. A competition very close to my heart and very exciting to have John Hurt launch it for the students of Ullswater Community College.
