It’s a strange job, one week you are twiddling your thumbs, the next, running from here to there, daytimes, evenings, meetings, shooting. It’s all good though.
The past week has seen me at BAFTA (Baseline premiere), The o2 (Jack Johnson, nice sounds) and Battersea Power Station. These were all evening jobs.
On Friday I attended the “Festival of Speed”. I did this for 2 reasons. 1. I like fast racing cars (particularly Ferraris…). 2. As a photographer I need to constantly push myself into different situations, find new subjects.
I know last year I attended “The Goodwood Revival” (as I will this year) but “The Festival” is far more intense, more like a race meet with stricter rules… I had a good (if tiring) time, managing to get into the F1 assembly area to shoot down the nose of the Ferrari of Marc Gene..
Saturday I was up in London early for a commercial commission before heading over to Pride. With some of the stewards not knowing one end of a flag from another, I missed the main photo-call with Boris Johnson. The next couple of hours were taken up dealing with security to get a decent shot of Boris and moving up and down the parade to get across the atmosphere…..
Sunday… a day off. I think I earned it….
