The update on the hard drive saga is that it is costing me an absolute fortune to see if any data can be recovered by a crack team of ‘experts’ in some far away land. I am guessing it is now becoming a forlorn hope and an experience that I never ever want to have to repeat. What a horrible feeling it is to realise you may never get back some of your hard work!! Boohoo…
On a more positive note, I had an interesting albeit maybe not too lucrative meeting down on the south coast yesterday and managed to catch up with my old buddy and friend Rich Lock. He never changes and in the 2 hours we were together managed to lose his wallet. It sounds dramatic but I have never really been with him for any length of time without him losing his wallet. Or keys. Or phone. 2 hours though is a personal best even for Rich.
Today the icelandic dust cloud has cleared the North of England which means we will be able to travel to Newcastle tomorrow morning and therefore see the amazing Take That in concert at the Stadium of Light as planned! All I need to do now is pack and make sure I have all the right paperwork etc. Early start tho’!
I also visited a potential client today to help with a couple of advertising ideas and hopefully if we can create some good concepts then I would hope to be able to get more photographic jobs from them including shooting the ads themselves. As always it will be the idea that really will win the day, the rest will come quite naturally.
After last weeks slight hiccup (too much wine tasting at the London International Wine Fair) the Radio Show continues on itfm.me.uk between the hours of 9-11pm GMT. Tonights show should be fun as it will be the first time that my Fiancee has ever graced the airwaves and boy is she nervous already! Nice easy baptism from me then in the early minutes do you think?
This triptych study was shot during a studio session with GB Olympic Diving Team members, Monique Gladding and Nick Robinson-Baker, both from Sheffield.
