I've been so busy with work this past month that I'm only just getting around to posting my blogs from jobs I completed in May. This was one of my favourites.
Winston's Wish is a charity very close to my heart and so I am always more than happy to help them with anything they need photographing. I never charge a fee or ask for travel expenses and they receive all the files, which I fully edit and art work.
This time they were at the Wilderness Centre in the Forest of Dean for a weekend away for those who had lost a loved one through suicide or manslaughter. It was pretty hard going at times but as always the children smiled their way through it and when they couldn't, the amazing staff at Winston's Wish were there to support them and help them work through things.
There were many activities for the children to get involved with including archery, rock climbing and painting. These gave them some light relief from the real issues facing the children. The main focus of the weekend, as always, was the group work, which is always tough. There is lots of talking, use of memory stones and memory boxes, which help the children to understand and process their grief.
If you would like to see more examples of my work for Winston's Wish then simply scroll through the Charity home page. Likewise, if you run a charity and have an event you would like photographing then please get in touch using my contact page. Alternatively you can call me on 07983 465414. I don't normally charge a fee but it depends on individual circumstances. Thanks!
