As a photographer that wears glasses I have to admit to struggling a bit when wearing a face mask to shoot, especially indoors where the combination of a warm environment and a hectic schedule conspire to steam up both my glasses and the viewfinder.
Catching up with an old school friend on LinkedIn led to me seeing one of his posts
about a face mask produced by Renz which I thought might help with the situation mentioned above. So after he sent me a couple of samples I thought I would give the new mask a try.
I found it pretty comfortable to wear and the shape of the mask allowed me to hold the camera to my eye freely without any problems or steaming up of the viewfinder. I was working outside but similar tests inside also proved to be far more comfortable than wearing a cloth face covering. Not the best look in the world but it certainly worked for me, not to mention the fact that it also makes it easier to communicate with your subject.
The masks come with two shields and two cords in the packaging below.
It would be interesting to see what people think, especially those of us that wear glasses.https://lnkd.in/dk9rXNm
Thanks to my assistant Jack Mather for the BTS pictures taken of me in action.
Working directly with NHS England and designer Antony Harrington from Studio Metier
I was commissioned to shoot in various locations around the country to highlight stories from the "Healthy New Towns" programme of NHS Funding where the emphasis was putting HEALTH INTO PLACE.
The photography featured a series of case studies showcasing the projects and people behind this initiative to embed health & wellbeing in new & expanding communities where large amounts of new housing developments were taking place.
Below are a sample of images used as section openers throughout the documents.
I recently found myself sitting in front of the television after a long day editing, the move from one screen to the other brightened by the happy coincidence of a familiar scene being shown in front of me.
The episode of the BBC Imagine documentary series featured the making of the stage production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, discovering how it has transformed the public’s perception of Autism.
Familiar faces began to appear from the Holmewood School London who’s staff and student’s experiences of living with Autism were interwoven with the footage of the stage production. Many of the characters featured from the school had recently been in front of (and behind) my camera during a shoot I had undertaken late in September at this very impressive school in North London.
A small selection of some images from the shoot can be found below.
