It is time to catch up on events that have happened during the summer months at Alternative Images. As the holiday season approached as always companies tend to wind down and place themselves into a sense of ‘tick over mode’ with the thought of people being away on their annual holidays with family and the companies staff being off work for fortnightly periods in turn. So I spent roughly five weeks in between photo assignments re-vamping the kitchen. Who needs a beach!
It does quieten down work wise in my industry as well during the summer months, but I was pleasantly surprised to hear from one of my long standing clients that has been away from the media sector for a while back working with the NAHT (national association of head teachers) and wanting me to cover a networking learning conference for them held early July at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London.
The day was a filled with informative speeches and three sessions of workshops held in various suites at the venue with titles such as ‘Helping teaches see what children see’ and a special presentation from a company that delivers designed software that is used to enhance the experience within the school classroom. What amused me while I was snapping away with one of my favourite lenses was how the presentation to all in the room sounded as if we were all wearing short trousers and eight years old. But we did behave ourselves and no one needed to go to the toilet!
