Photos, film, and food in the fridge

Sometimes in life things can move very quickly.  Sunday evening only a week ago after chatting to a photographer in Wells in Norfolk, I decided that some of my photographs, taken over the last four years, were every bit as good as those he was selling.  I’d stepped into the shop which I remembered from a previous visit to Wells to escape the driving rain and found myself sifting through his work, lifting up a shot now and then, and finally falling into conversation with him about the settings he has used to take the shots and how he had adjusted the images to give them extra impact.  Like every photographer who meets a fellow enthusiast, he was pleased to be able to talk about contrast and colour saturation and definition and stops.  I had left, with a couple of postcards in my hand and an idea in my head.  Now, seven days on, I have the proofs of my own edited range of photos ready to send to the UK’s largest greeting card producer.  You can find the shortlist on the gallery tab.

Life is progressing and all the hard work over the last few years is beginning to pay off.  I have a contract with a government agency as an innovation consultant.  There is a project at Cambridge Judge Business School which it has been suggested I apply for.  If I win the work it will mean I can make the long awaited house move to Cambridge.  There is also a very interesting knowledge transfer role at CERN which I am debating about applying for too.  CERN is a very handy hour or so from Chamonix which is where the company that will take me up Everest is based.  On the Everest attempt front I have been put in touch with a filmmaker who is happy to chat about how to record on film a record of my training and the record attempt itself.  Another contact has told me who to speak to at Loughborough University School of Sport, Exercise and Health Science about being used as a research subject.    On the down side WBS said no to being a sponsor.  Oh well.  It’s one small set back in a very large plan.
