Bizarre Marketing!

Readers of my blog may remember that back in the summer, Linda bought me a hedgehog house for my birthday. It came from Amazon.

Now, as we’ve bought one hedgehog house, Amazon recommend that I buy another!

If this carries on, our back garden will be a small town for hedgehogs with hedgehog houses everywhere.  Will Amazon start selling hedgehog schools, hedgehog town halls, hedgehog shopping centres?  The list goes on!

I was asked by the Learning and Performance Institute to take photographs at the annual Learning Live Conference, held at 200 Aldersgate, London, 11-12 September ’13.

The after dinner keynote speaker was Andy Cope, while the main session keynoter was BBC Click’s Spencer Kelly.

What to do if you find your photographs have been stolen.

This is one of my more popular photographs. Especially with golf clubs who have stolen it for their own use!

Simon Crofts is a professional photographer and EPUK (Editorial Photographers UK) member. He studied law at Oxford University, and subsequently worked for ten years as a corporate finance lawyer at leading international law firm Linklaters in London and Moscow before he became a photographer.

Your copyright, what you are entitled to claim from an infringer, and how to assemble and present a claim, are all discussed in detail here on his blog.
I have already started chasing infringers – and with some success!

On a Matchday….

I think that I am so lucky to be able to do the job that I do, working as one of the Club Photographers for the Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club.

Here’s a few photos which provide a glimpse of some of what I get up to on a matchday at the American Express Community Stadium.

Learning Live Conference

I was the conference photographer for the LEARNING LIVE 2011 conference at the Hilton Hotel in Birmingham on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th September.

The conference for Learning Professionals enjoyed a gala dinner on Tuesday evening where delegates, speakers and exhibitors relaxed until the wee small hours. On the Wednesday an inspiring keynote presentation by Lord Robert Winston set the tone for the conference, and delegates followed one of five session threads on Learning topics throughout the day. An exhibition gave learning-related companies an opportunity to promote their products.



LEARNING LIVE was organised by the Learning and Performance Institute (formerly the IITT) and provided a platform to launch its new identity.
