Charity walk for B&Q staff
Charity walk by B&Q staff, always rewarding photographing people doing charity walks. These B&Q staff members were walking the West Highland Way in 36 hours.
I turned up to a Glasgow branch, where the guys would play for pictures the week before their attempt. Of course, what do I really need to make some great pics? Props. No maps or compass, no walking boots, trekking poles or anything vaguely Gore-Tex. Sigh….
Anyway, we reschedule and finally get the needed props. Boring pics in car park requested, tick… but we need to get some fun into the pics… Gwapple me gwape nuts…. let’s do a David Bellamy. Always works, always fun, always makes a great pic.
Funnily enough I photographed David Bellamy a few years ago for the Evening Times. I told him that whenever I did this sort of pic in bushes, I called it “doing a David Bellamy” He guffawed loudly and gave me the heartiest slap on the back. Happy times… ;)
