IMG Photography were invited to provide photographic coverage of ‘The Golden Mile’ at Weston Favell CEVA Primary School.This initiative was set up by Premier Sport Limited whereby school children are encouraged to walk or run at least one mile per week. Although this does not sound much, most participants easily beat this figure.
The emphasis is on the children monitoring and recording the amount walked within a safe environment. 23 Northampton schools had previously enrolled and had come together to accept awards for the most miles covered or for special commendations for partaking and involvement.
Olympic Gold Medallist Duncan Goodhew was on hand as an ambassador to encourage and answer questions. Also covering the event were the local newspaper and BBC Northampton, as well as Heart FM If your school is considering such a worth while venture, check out the web site at THE GOLDEN MILE
Well we finally got employed by the BBC. Well not quite. A good friend and client asked us if we could cover a clever bit of PR she had set up for a ‘Dog Wedding ?’ Ann Clark from Kitz-Katz cattery and boarding kennels was approached by the BBC Inside Out programme to produce a dog wedding for pampered pooches.
It was all produced very tongue in cheek and everybody had a bit of fun that day. The programme went out on the 28th February 2011. Unfortunately the clip from the programme is no longer available. Ah well, that’s my 15 minutes of fame. P.S. that is not us on the film camera, we only produced the stills.
