Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of being the official event photographer for the Ledbury Poetry Festival. Having spoken to the Festival Manager, Phillippa Slinger, at the 2017 Ledbury Celebration I was keen to help the festival get professional photographs to help them promote this wonderful Herefordshire event – the biggest poetry festival in the UK.
Last year I missed Ledbury Community Day as I was out of town, but this year (on Saturday 10 June) I was determined to have a look around the town, meet some of the people who run community groups and local charities, learn more about the many things happening in and around Ledbury and snap a few photographs to help promote them.
I’ve had the great pleasure once again to be the roving event photographer at the Steampunk and Pirates Yule Ball, held annually at the Exeter Phoenix arts centre and creative hub since 2013. The Ball, conceived and organised by the talented and outgoing Fey Pink, has become one of the key events of the UK Steampunk scene
