Sometimes you just enjoy it- and I did tonight, big time. I got a very short notice to go and shoot a skating gala – with live music – organized by Plan to raise funds for the education of girls in less developped countries.
Earlier today I had written a very critical piece on the state of our print media and the future of photojournalism for The Journalist (more about that later…) and worked on until I felt my brain was cooking on a multimedia project dealing with the reprosessing of nuclear waste… so I really needed something like this.
And it was great fun working again side by side with Tomas Whitehouse with whom I collaborated in the Tallinn European Championships earlier this year. We there created a very similar gallery as I did tonight and the number of visits (over 167 000) blew our minds away.
My client didn’t ask for it, but I thought as there were so many eyes following the images from the European Championships that there might be people out there who’d like to see these, so I made a quick gallery of some of the stuff I shot tonight just for the fun of it. So, enjoy… As I said, I did.
