How is everyone? These are seriously strange times we’re navigating. The isolation protocols are making photography extremely challenging, but there is still much good work we can do, so here’s a little reminder of my latest projects and work that can continue, despite the lockdown.
BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC FESTIVAL
My last live event before social distancing became necessary, the Radio 6 Music festival is always a favourite in my annual calendar. This year it took place in Camden, London, across multiple venues. I worked with the BBC Creative team, editing live performance photography, managing photographer access to venues and arranging photocalls. These events are always really busy and it’s a great privilege to catch some incredible performances and be part of such a vibrant cultural event.
Catch performances on the BBC Sounds app and BBC iPlayer.
BAFTA FILM AWARDS
Early February saw me do my first ever event for BAFTA. I joined the lovely BAFTA team at the Academy Film Awards as a Picture Editor, live editing pictures and making them available to press throughout the night from the Royal Albert Hall and the Grosvenor House Hotel.
Photographer: Thomas Alexander
Face to face shoots might be hard right now, but there is an awful lot of great work that can be managed easily from home. I’m lucky enough to have my own studio and super fast fibre broadband, so here’s a quick reminder of what I can continue with while in lockdown!
PICTURE APPROVALS (CAST AND STAKEHOLDER)
LAYOUT DESIGN (FOR BROCHURES, BRIEFS, PITCHES ETC)
UNIT PHOTOGRAPHY PLANNING
If you’re in the position to employ a freelancer at the moment, even for small jobs, then please do consider it.
