Red Stop Photography

Just started another project with Mark Carter and the RMT and ASLEF unions working out of Bournemouth Station.  Same idea as Changing Faces but this time we hope to visit various locations around and about – location and architecture rather than portraits.

One diference – we have a website to post images and short reports about each shoot as we go – www.redstop.co.uk….

Beyond the Line – Salisbury Hospital

Week three of the project, and for the first time we were able to go outside to take photographs.  It's a fascinating site – a mix of new build and the old single story brick air base buildings.  We found some good spots in the alleys connecting the two – bright primary NHS house colours alongside cast iron pipes and old brick just glowing in the soft light of an overcast Wiltshire…

Have just written to Manfrotto to see if they will lend the project some tripods and pistol grip ball and socket heads to make our photographers less dependent on me setting up the shots…. 

Relays – Art of Sport workshops

Just completed the last of these workshops on Friday.  2000 school kids, 300 RELAYS student volunteers, about 20 artists, three film crews (one on a cherry picker), a mayor, a choir, two Olympic athletes and a couple of very forbearing Olympic mascots – just as well it was chilly or they would have been walking around in personal saunas, given the amount of padding in the suits.

Great fun just to see the excitement this whole olympic thing generates, and hats off to Virgina Bailey of RELAYs who organised the show.  We (thanks again to my three student helpers) ran workshops getting the various school groups out photographing the sport, the art, the grass, each other, and mocking up newspaper front pages with the images…

right – what's next…?
