October 2020

It’s been a busy couple of months. We managed to get away for a brief holiday during the summer. Both our kids are back at school. John has started secondary school and has settled in surprising quickly.

The studio has gradually been getting back to some kind of “new normal”. We are fully open, but still by appointment. The door is locked and anyone who crosses the threshold is logged in our customer relations diary. We are operating a QR code for the NHS track and trace app and all the usual covid cleaning protocols are in place.

We’ve completed shooting the Ickle Pickles 2021 Calendar and that will be sent off to the printers later this month. We’ve only be able to get 48 children this year instead of the 72 we usually photograph so we may not be able to sell as many to raise as much money as last year’s £5000. We will be fully funding the print run ourselves so that Ickle Pickles receives as much cash as possible.

On October 11th we will be celebrating 8 years since we first opened our doors. So much has happened in that time and those of you who we early customers will realise how much things have changed. The studio is completely different and we have tried to make every shoot a great experience for you and your family.

The MPA announced the merit awards for the 37th Master Photography Awards on Monday 21st September and Steve has be awarded 11. It’s his highest total, eclipsing his 7 in 2017 when he won the UK Lifestyle and Location Photographer of the Year title. These images now go on to be judged for higher honours. We are not having an awards dinner this year but a virtual ceremony on October 18th. We still have to dress up! We will keep you posted on results so keep an eye on our facebook page
