As the readers of this blog can probably tell, I regularly wax lyrical about how much I love a good drink and great company. Luckily, my career choice allows for both of these pastimes. I spent most of the last weekend at the Old Truman Brewery, photographing for Camden Town Brewery
at Craft Beer Rising
; a wonderful cornucopia land of beers, where guests wonder from stand to stand, sampling everything there is to offer from larger, to pale to dark ale (and even alcoholic ginger beer). The atmosphere is relaxed; everyone is friendly and a little bit tipsy.
I love shooting for Camden for so many reasons, they are a fantastic brand who make delicious beer and everytime I turn up to shoot somebody at the bar smiles and yells ‘hey photographer lady!’ which completely makes my day. In between photographing other people drinking beer, I had a chance to try some myself (naturally).
Sadly CBR is now over however do not despair! You can try Foolish at The Horseshoe
or Camden’s Daughter
and still raise money for charity. If you are a fan of a fresh, punchy and deliciously sour beer, this IPA is the one, and having tasted more than one at CBR, I definitely have the authority to say so.
For some time now my blog has been sitting lonely, unloved and sad, lost in the depths of the internet. But no more! As the old adage goes, ‘new year, new you’ and an integral part of my ‘new me’ is my blog.
This will be a place showcasing new work, personal projects, photographers who inspire me and exhibitions that excite me. Perhaps even a musing or two…all strictly related to the still image of course. So, please watch this space, this is my public promise to keep this blog up to date and hopefully interesting for those who read it.
Whilst everyone awaits the deluge of new work to come, here is a small selection of some of my favourite shots from 2016 to enjoy.
