A Surprise for Tom     

Tom Rees was enjoying his two weeks work experience with BMS Imaging Ltd. I had given him a little project to photograph randem items at macro level and to produce a portfolio of pictures to take with him when he completed his time with us. The finished rsults were superb and I have asked Tom if I can keep them to show future students what can be achieved if they really want to.

During the first week, one of his tutors called to tell Tom that he had won a national competition..... "I need a few words from you" said the Tutor. Like a trooper, Tom laughed with excitement and a little embarrassment, then explained how surprised and proud he was, at least I think that was what the Tutor suggested......


On his last day, a friend of mine, Derek Thomas, turned up out of the blue...... proudly displaying the Olympic Torch he'd had the honour to carry through Ipswich prior to the games. He offered Tom the chance to hold it and have his picture taken with it.......

I think Tom had a great two weeks with us, at least I hope he did... great set of pictures, won a competition and held an Olympic Torch!!!!!

Derek is offering to take his torch to various schools so that the kids can see and touch it and be inspired..... well done Derek, after all, the people of Britain have funded this and what better way for something to be given back......

Classic Rock Awards 2011

What a great night at the Roundhouse for the Classic Rock Roll of Honour. I photographed, for Monitor Audio, one of my all time guitar heroes, Jeff Beck. His album "Truth" was the first "LP" I ever bought. It was back in 1970 or so and I was a first year art student with no music, so I browsed some second hand store and just loved the cover and I've been buying his albums ever since.

Apart from meeting Jeff backstage along with Joss Stone and Gene Simmons of "Kiss", I also donated pictures for the charity "Childline Rocks", photographing the musicians as they signed memorabilia which will be auctioned to raise money for "Childline". None of the bands refused to sign and were all delighted to do so.

So a good night was had by all... Monitor Audio got pictures for their Facebook page, Childline got some PR shots and I got Jeff Beck's autograph on my very first album...... Hi Ho Silver Lining!!!!!

Cheers
Roger
