Last month the Best of Richmond, a marketing, advertising, networking and reviewing firm, hosted a business exposition at Twickenham Stadium, as it has done for years. The event featured a presentation by business guru and owner of Watertight Marketing, Bryony Thomas, as well as 80+ stalls in which local businesses displayed, demonstrated and explained their goods and services. I had the great privilege of being asked to photograph the event and I had a fantastic time. The atmosphere was one of high energy and a positive outlook about the future. I really do feel fortunate to be a small business owner myself in this patch of London – filled with other serious, hard-working professionals who love what they do.
During the morning, I also got to meet and photograph Twickenham's new MP, Dr. Tania Matthias and made a collage for her to display in her office (whether at Westminster or locally). Despite the fact that I'm not a Tory, Tania is impressive - and has great fashion sense.
