In a bolt out of the blue phone call, I discovered that LEEC, one of my photography clients had entered some of my pictures into a national contest run by a manufacturing industry body. At first I thought the lady had said she was from EE and I thought it was about my mobile – but it was in fact EEF!
Turns out that my photo is on display at the House of Commons with the other short listed finalists, and they are inviting me down for the presentation ceremony there next month.
Maybe I will end up shaking hands with David Cameron? Who will have the cheesiest grin? Me I bet.
Wish me luck!
Spike Photography client Handelsbanken’s new office is in the news today. The official opening of their West Bridgford branch was celebrated with a drinks and canapes party and I was there to record the event for posterity – and the POST!
Branch manager Ian Davys knows me from way back, we often bump into each other at events for Nottingham’s great and the good, so it was a no-brainer for me when he asked me to take some great photographs of him and the team at his new outpost of the Handelsbanken empire.
Behind Ian and Neil Clarke, Leader of Rushcliffe Council, is part of a mural of photographs I took for their boardroom – and it looks amazing – even though I say so myself 😉
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.
