BigC Workshop on the Broads

Saturday played host to the BigC Broads Photographic workshop, which I hosted in aid of the fabulous Norfolk charity on the Edge of the River Bure & Thurne.

Given we’ve enjoyed some fabulous recent weather, I think, quite rightly myself and all the participants envisaged a wonderfully warm, bright day with the cameras….. Sadly, we were met with wind, rain and dreadfully cold temperatures… in fact, it felt more like November.

Still, we Brits are a hardy lot and having only one participant pull out, the rest of us popped the rain coats on and proceeded to shoot some atmospheric images along this picturesque part of the Broads.
Naturally, during the workshop, I’m not shooting my own material, instead, advising, suggesting and running through settings and ideas with all.

After the folks had departed Thurne, I stayed on and shot a few 40 second exposures as the darkness rolled in and moments before it began to rain.
A beautiful hue formed over the mill & river and thankfully in those couple of minutes I managed to capture my one frame of the day.

Cambridge Design and Construction Awards

Held in the wonderful grounds of St Catherine College in Cambridge the Cambridge Design and Construction Awards took place last week, showcasing truly awe-inspiring design and building projects throughout Cambridgeshire.

Watching the presentations is fascinating. It certainly offers food for thought and I often come away with ideas for building projects, albeit on a significantly different financial footing.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Supporters Evening

Last week the wonderful Norfolk & Norwich festival held a supporters evening at the charming Norfolk Club in Norwich.
The evening presents a chance for the charity to raise new funds for the forthcoming 2019 festival as well as providing a wonderful networking opportunity for individuals with like-minded interests. Emotive footage from the 2018 event was shown, as well as some hints for the 2019 festival, which promises to be fabulous!

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Gala Evening

The annual Norfolk & Norwich Festival gala evening was held in the wonderful Adnams Spiegeltent in Chapelfield gardens last night, where the who’s who of Norfolk turned out to enjoy a wonderful evening, interspersed with amazing acts to entertain and thrill the audience.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Gala Dinner

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Gala evening was the place to be last week and fortunately for me, I was asked to shoot images of the proceedings throughout the evening.

Crica were one of the highlights of the evening, with their stunning array of acrobatic skill and fine performances, wowing the invited guests with jaw dropping displays.

It’s a joy to see so many terrific performances in one place!
