Looking Forward to Seeing a Proper Band – Bon Jovi

Its Friday 7th June 2013 and the sun is shining beautifully, (I brought it back from Turkey last week).

It’s looking like he weather will be superb for tomorrow’s Bon Jovi concert at Manchester City’s stadium, the only time you’ll get me back in that ground having been thrown out during the Manchester Derby as a corporate client in City’s first season there (But thats a different story)

At The Lowry Hotel, Manchester

Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque

Late November 2011, I was recommended to Pernod Ricard for a Perrier Jouet Bicentenary Celebration event being held at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester on 30th November 2011

Finally my Commercial Photographer networking was starting to pay off! I spoke with Philippa at Pernod Ricard explained that I had to be away from the event by about 4pm latest as I had to get home and back into Manchester later for a Bryan Adams concert at the MEN

Monty Halls

I stood there at the Aegon 2011 National Conference working as Saville AV’s photographer for this event, talking to this very polite, tall chap who was due to go on stage as a guest speaker. I’d never met Monty Halls. In fact I had never heard of Monty Halls until that day. And as he asks me about my commercial photography I ask him what he does other than guest speaking. He replies “Oh you know a bit of TV, expeditions, exploration, diving, I love writing” It wasn’t until I got home that I found anything out about Monty Halls. But I have to say I have seen some exceptionally good business speakers. From Sir Clive Woodward to Richard Olivier, son of the famous Laurence Olivier and Monty Halls was very good. His delivery and presence on stage was first class and I think the whole audience from Aegon thought so too!

Photography Studios Manchester – Now Complete!

Finally! As most of our friends, family, colleagues and clients will know, we started work on converting our large garage/gymnasium into a fantastic photographic studio just before Christmas 2010. My plans were originally to have the whole works complete and have an operational studio by the end of January 2011. My professional photographer friends up and down the country were expecting the invite to a topping out ceremony and giving the studio its first session with a few models and plenty of laughs. However as a great business mentor once said to me, “No plan survives its 1st encounter with reality” And so it goes; the finishing of the studio took a few weeks longer than planned. Five to six weeks to be honest.
