Driving past the other day, the building they were in has a big To Let sign outside it but their signage is still up and pictures are in the window. I had a call yesterday from a dad who wanted Work Experience for his daughter, but I’m too busy at the moment, so suggested Venture Photography. However, he said they had closed down.
He asked me about Olan Mills and I told him that they went out of business many years ago, then were revived by some guys and they sprang up in a shop in Huntingdon House, on Huntingdon Street, Nottingham, but they didn’t last too long and were soon closed.
Now Venture have a reputation for very expensive portrait sessions despite their ‘£25 voucher offer’ – see: http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/showthread.php?t=114829 so maybe the recession has done for them? Their phone number is disconnected.
Anyway, I am always happy to provide some really great family photography or portrait sessions at a much more realistic price – get in touch if you are interested…
Spike Photography was up for an early start to photograph a lorry being loaded with wheat in Lincolnshire to supply a new multi-million-pound biofuels plant.
Photography client Frontier Agriculture is in charge of supplying the £200m Vivergo plant, at Saltend, in Hull, has revealed that it has signed over 500 farmers to the ‘Humber Gold wheat club’ in tjust a few weeks.
The Hull-based plant is set to become the largest buyer of grain in the whole of the country and hopes to buy the one million tonnes of wheat it needs each year from local farmers.
The site is a joint venture between DuPont, BP and British Sugar and will turn the wheat into biofuel for use in lorries and forklift trucks.
What a fabulous, glamourous evening at Miss Mansfield and Sherwood Forest last night!
As official photographer I had my work cut out snapping away at all the gorgeous girls in the final dozen.
Well done to all the girls for doing so well, it takes a lot of bottle to step up on stage and strut your stuff, as well as get grilled on the mike in front of over 250 people!
Eventually the eight judges decided Alicia Caley, my pick for Miss Photogenic was the winner, closely follwed by Jade Hawkins and Nicole ‘Cola’ Bailey – pictured here.
Malcolm Hall, owner of super-successful fastening firm Hall-Fast has only been in business for five years – but his firm is a finalist in the Nottingham Post’s EMB-sponsored Nottinghamshire Small Business of the Year Award.
Naturally, as a discerning businessman, Malcolm chose Spike to have him looking his best for the paper’s promotional picture, modeling some of the latest in bespoke builder’s fashion available from their trade counter.
I photographed a 66,000,011 year old lady the other day in Leicester University. Jane was pictured with Rod and John from Vertigo Creative who made her look her best with some creative lighting and a dynamic pose.
By the way, Jane is a Tyrannosaurus rex, found at Hell Creek, amid the arid badlands of Montana. She is a sub-adult, estimated to be around 11 years oldat the time of her death. Vital statistics, 7′ 6″ tall and 21 feet long – around half the size of a fully grown dinosaur.
Weight 110 stone – but would have become 5 tonnes if she had reached adulthood.
Dinosaurs are typically named after the archiologist who finds them – hence the name ‘Jane’.
Her lower jaw features a full set of razor-sharp teeth, ideal for tearing into flesh. I wonder if she was smiling for me?
Singers from property companies throughout the Nottingham area joined forces at Oceana nightclub recently to make X-Factor look like a bunch of beginners.
Nottingham Hot Property was established in 2004 by Malcolm Wright to raise money for Nottingham based children’s charities and over the years it has raised over £180,000 for them. All the singers and musicians are from local property firms and spend weeks rehearsing to get the performances pitch-perfect. See event photos (by me) here
