It's a real privilege for me to hold the position I do within Olympus and I absolutely love the platform to be able to interact and communicate with you, my friends in the SWPP, through these wonderful magazines pages ...but, I'm more excited than normal to write my piece in this issue!
The theme for this magazine is 'Last of the summer shots' and that gives me a plethora of images to share with you. The little gallery of images that we are displaying with the article were all created during one of my Olympus 'BIG shoot experience' days, these, in particular, at Sandon Hall in Stafford.
What's the 'Big shoot experience'? For those that don't know, it's the nearest Olympus and I can get to sharing a full-on, full-blown commercial shoot with you. It's a shoot event, generally in a cool setting, styled and propped with great models and directed, lit and shot by a cool creative team ...a team that soon YOU can be part of! So my 'last of the summer' shots dovetail beautifully with both the theme of the magazine and the reason for my excitement.
If I've timed this right, this will either be breaking news or hot on the heels of the official announcement, the announcement of two things I'm very, very proud to be part of.
There are 221 days to get ready for The Societies of Photographers Convention and Trade Show at The Novotel London West, Hammersmith ...
