Errol Photography

I promised myself that I’d never do this again…

Errol’s cool photography project had registered with me before, and when he called up and asked if I’d be interested in being included, I found myself saying ‘yes’ automatically. I’ve done this a few times before for different articles and interviews, but pulling out all my shoes to be photographed is a mammoth task. Three hours of reaching into the attic and crawling around in the wardrobe resulted in a five-hour photo session… and three hours of putting them away again.

On a brighter note, it gave me the perfect opportunity to rotate the current selection of shoes I’m wearing. Winter’s coming, so away with the runners and out with the ACGs, Gore-Tex hikers and other things I’d forgotten about.

The results of the shoot will appear on Errol’s Flicker account soon and then in an exhibition (and perhaps book) next year. Cheers Errol!
