I'm delighted to be part of the Guild of Photographer's "Portraits of Togetherness". See below for details of the national campaign!
There have been countless acts of kindness and caring shown throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. From our amazing NHS and key workers but also from our silent heroes - those who have quietly gone about supporting their neighbours, shopping for the vulnerable, checking in on those living alone... helping us get through this together.
Through the Guild of Photography (of which I'm proud to be a member), this is our way of saying a photographers heartfelt, no strings attached,
Their pet can be anything with four furry legs; dog, cat or horse. It can include more than one pet but should be no more than 4 (with prior agreement). Their pets humans can also take part, limited to 4 people.
The shoot will take place within 25 miles of Reading, and will include 1-2 hours photography and 5 free high-resolution digital images of the person’s choice (along with the equivalent digital downloads for social media).
Tell Tails Photography and award winning photographer, Sharon Bolt of Cleo Bolt Photography have combined to bring you two, fun, four hour practical workshops with a maximum of 5 delegates, per workshop.
This is an ideal offer for any of your heroes who are budding photographers. Or maybe just heroes who wish to learn more about how to photograph their pets.
The workshops will take place in the Autumn at an outdoor location between Newbury/Reading and Berkshire border.
We'll supply the expertise to help your heroes create stunning images, we'll provide the dogs and we'll provide the laughter.
These are the sort of days our dreams are made of, meeting people, working with dogs and talking photography.
Nominate your local hero to spend four hours with two professional award winning dog photographers and learn the secrets of their trade.
You are invited to nominate your ‘local hero’ who has given so much during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. This could be an NHS worker, front line worker, key worker or someone who has gone ‘above & beyond’ to support a vulnerable neighbour or friend.
Nominations are open until 1st September.
The nominations will be shortlisted and 5 winners for each offer will be chosen at random from the shortlist.
