I’ve previously taken photographs for Reaction Music (see African Drumming Workshop) to provide images for their upcoming website, and Kevin asked if I could take more photographs for them of a Rock School workshop that they were putting on at the Aspire Living centre in Hereford. Aspire supports people with learning and other disabilities

Patience (and pets) Patience and pet photography go hand in hand. Pets often don’t do what you want when you want them to.
