In the words of the inimitable Alice Cooper ‘School’s Out!’ Amongst the joy, excitement and enviable optimism that summer is just around the corner there have been heartfelt tears (some of them mine) as the summer term at Walhampton draws to a close and the leavers bid the school farewell.
I have put together a 13 minute film Walhampton Founders Day Film 2016 hit the link to view that captures the essence of the school, teachers, day pupils and the boarders. I am extremely proud of this piece of work and hope to be allowed a quiet fist pump in the style of Andy Murray by the back office.
What next I hear you cry? Well for the rest of July and into August I am going to be up to my baubles (too racy?) in Festive shoots. Yes, that’s right we are back to the infamous #christmasinjuly and luckily it looks like the weather has opted to join me. Joke!
This year I have bookings from July to September predominantly with hotels, also stylists, house builders and product designers. I’m always excited to see what the season’s trends are and what the palettes are going to be like to capture through a lens.
While some clients favour ‘opulence’ and go all out to pile on the rich deep colours everywhere, others take the Nordic approach, which is neutral, clean and in recent years has featured stars in all shapes and sizes.
There is something magical about turning up on the school run with glitter in your hair and over your glasses, especially when it’s the last day of the summer term!
This year I will not eat a single mince pie… This year I will not eat a single mince pie…This year I will not eat a single mince pie – repeat as necessary!
