It has been an amazing weekend; my first exhibition (Keeping Abreast) was a wonderful success. Starting on Friday evening (20th July) with a private viewing. Over 60 guests arrived to view my work purchasing tickets and raising £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
With a relaxed ambiance created by very talented pianist Ed Alexandre and fine Champagne and Canapés; guests enjoyed a talk by myself about the photography, and went on to enjoy an after party at the Albert Dock in Liverpool.
The following day the exhibit was open to the public, I enjoyed meeting new people and talking about my work. Many where very kind to sign my guestbook leaving comments and feedback.
You can view all the shots from the setup and private viewing on the slideshow above, please leave some comments. The private viewing was also filmed by video production company 3 Degrees West,
I’m looking forward to my next exhibition, and after organising my first, I know to take spare frames as we had a few accidents when setting up! Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the experience gaining feedback from family, clients and the public.
With only three days to go I have been busy making the final preparations for the Exhibition. The last prints arrived today from DS Colour Labs in Manchester, and I have been busy framing.
Posters are now up all over Liverpool and I am hoping to have a good turn out on Friday and Saturday. Raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, meeting new people and receiving feedback on my latest projects.
2012 marks my 10th year as a professional photographer and to celebrate the occasion I have decided to hold an exhibition of my work. Showcasing some of my personal unseen catalog and would like to extend an open invitation.
The exhibition will be HELD OVER TWO DAYS at the Bluecoat Gallery in Liverpool with a private viewing on Friday 20th July from 7-9:30pm and will be open to the public on the following day Saturday 21st from 10-4:00pm.
If you would like to attend the private viewing email me places are limited. Tickets for the Private Viewing are £10 with all proceeds being donated to Macmillan Cancer Charity. I will be giving a talk about the work and my career in the industry and their will be a glass or two of wine or beer to numb the pain of the talk, which I trust will not be too boring.
