As people say, 'I was today years old when...' I learnt that 2 July is the halfway point in the year. I've just never thought about it before, but everyone seems to be remarking on it online today (2 July 2021).
So it seems appropriate that I've given my tearsheet page a bit of an update this week, at the mid-point of the year.
I work with many arts organisations - museums, galleries and businesses - to create images that they can for publicity, promotion and reporting, for example if they've received a grant for a particular project and need images to show the project in action. The shoot days are always filled with lots of variety and creative challenges, and I always come away feeling artistically inspired, too.
My tearsheet page includes a few examples of how these organisations use these images, online or in print, when I find them. Some are for press and promotion, like the images of Michael Landy's Welcome to Essex exhibition at Firstsite, which received a lot of press including the Sunday Times Culture magazine and the i newspaper. Some images are for social media, illustrating newsletters or part of the visual identity of a website, illustrating feature articles like the Goldsmiths' Stories, or to show people what they can expect when the visit, like the Charles Dickens Museum.
Hopefully there will be plenty more updates to come! It's great to share the work I and my lovely clients are doing and also hopefully provides a bit of inspiration on how you can use photographs for your own promotion, too.
