International Women's Day - Viva Lewes shoot

I thought it was appropriate to post this on International Women's Day. I had the pleasure of being asked to photograph this months Viva Lewe 'Way We Work' section. The theme was independent businesses. I got to meet and photograph six amazing women that were running four businesses. 
I am so pleased with the results and the photographs look even better in print. 

I first photographed Nancy in the herb garden at Lewes Priory. She is a perfumier and has her own range of perfumes. (nancymeiland.com)
I then photographed Anna and Nicola, they specialise in pop-up spas at festivals.  (treatment-tents.com)
Then in Lewes I photographed Thalassa and Charlotte. They are offering package free shopping from their little van - Peggy. They're trying to eradicate plastic packaging. (charlottescupboard.com)
Finally I photographed Tracy, she makes amazing quirky pieces of furniture from old shop mannequins. (dollyfixtures.co.uk)

It was an honour to meet such amazing women that are out there doing their own thing, good luck to them all.

Photo of the Month

I’m very excited as my photograph was picked as Viva Lewes ‘Photo of the Month’. It’s always lovely to have people appreciate your work. The called it 'Robin in the Hood'.
Viva Lewes is a local free magazine that has been running for years. It has food reviews, information of what's going in the pubs and clubs in addition the front cover is always designed by a local artist. So it's always a compliment to be chosen as Photo of the Month. I have won a couple of times and been shortlisted a few more.  

So now all I need to do is to decide what t do with my £20 winnings.
