The annual dinner and awards season is now underway and we've been busy covering various corporate events over the last couple of weeks including one for internet tech giants Webfusion at the famous Pinewood Studios. It was a memorable time setting up our backdrops and lighting on the site of most of the James Bond 007 films. We have also covered the trade awards for Essential Install magazine at Sandown Park racecourse.
In between I also covered a last minute rush job which involved me getting a phone call at 10.30am on Sunday morning whilst still in bed drinking tea and reading the paper after working late the night before. The client wanted to know if I could make Paris by that lunchtime. I managed to make it but it was a good job it was a long lunch! The client was very pleased and I was rewarded by a very very nice evening dinner on top of our fees.
We are still surprised by how late some people are leaving it to book photographic services at this time of the year and a lot of people are going to be disappointed that they cannot get the photographic services they require. It is however nice to receive advance enquiries and we already have jobs penciled in for next August and December.
Between now and Christmas day we are attending a few parties ourselves as guests. I wonder who will be taking our pics?
Wishing all our friends and clients a happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.
