We were delighted to have been working with Jeff and the rest of the Coventry Comic Con team at this year’s CovCon, which was held at the Sports Connexion in Ryton. It was the show’s second year and it had more than doubled in floor area since this year it filled both halls. This meant that we could put up three separate studios – the celebrity meet and greet, the Iron Throne and a green screen one too.

This year’s show also boasted a stage which played host to the QA’s, various dance routines and the Cosplay Pagent.

There was also a fair amount to see outside the halls, with a huge array of vehicular movie stars on show to wow the crowds.

One of the major attractions for this sort of event is the line up of stars from film and TV and once again, Coventry Comic Con delivered by bringing in celebrities from all over the world. It was a real pleasure to meet the actors and work with them in the meet and greet studio. It was clear to see the impact that meeting the actors had on their fans.

We helped Coventry ComicCon with more than just providing the photo studios – we also helped by printing the tokens that could be bought by the attendees and exchanged for photos in the studios. We custom designed these and printed them on ID card blanks. Jeff was absolutely delighted when he saw them.

During the course of the day, we also managed to shoot a little video to help promote the convention. This exemplifies how we work with our clients and hopefully exceed their expectations.

Around 80 golfers joined celebrities Willie Thorne and European Pro Golfer Andy Sullivan to help raise around £5000 for Parkinsons at the Golf to A Tee Classic and we were delighted to have been invited along to photograph the day.

After coffee and bacon sandwiches, the players took to the beautiful Welcombe Golf Course in Stratford-upon-Avon. The weather was a little changeable although thankfully it remained warm. Everyone I spoke with on the course seemed to be having a fantastic day.

Once the round had been completed, it was back to the club house for a splendid meal and a very entertaining QA session with the two celebrities.

Banbury Lions Club held their annual charity fun ride in the countryside surrounding the beautiful Broughton Castle, near Banbury, raising money for Redwings and the Riding for the Disabled Association and we were delighted to have been invited along to photograph the event.

The riders started and finished in the grounds of Broughton Castle before trekking across the fields and taking in Swallcliffe Park Equestrian Centre’s cross country course. We had two photographers on course capturing everyone going through/

Everyone I spoke to seemed to be having a great time, even if the stiff breeze did turn a few of the signposts around!

It was great to be back working with our favourite clients – the Appaloosa Horse Club UK at their National Breed show which was held at Morton Morrell. We were trying to work it out and we’ve come to the conclusion that this was probably the 8th year we’ve covered the event.

As usual, it was a superbly run show with everyone seemingly enjoying themselves despite the rather changeable weather. At least there were no wasps this year!

In an attempt to try something new this year, we set up our studio lights on Saturday evening and were offering studio-style portraits of owners and their horses. We were delighted with the results. It is really great to be able to show these fine animals in their true light.

Assuming that we’re invited back again, we will set the studio up again next year too.

All of the photos are now online, and can be viewed by clicking the button below. If you used our automated shopping cart system when you visited our trailer, we’ve copied those onto the website too. You can access them by clicking on the “Carts” button below

I had the misfortune of taking my wheelchair-bound mother to the store on the Leicester Road, Rugby, at around 7 p.m. on Friday the 28th July and I was horrified at just how difficult it was to navigate the store. Virtually every aisle had cages either containing rubbish or produce waiting to be put out on display but there were no staff actually doing anything with them. It is no word of a lie – it felt as though I was wheeling her around the Tesco stock room!

Due to the design of the wheelchair trollies and my mum’s wheelchair, it is impossible to go backwards as when the front wheels turn on their pivots, the jam against the wheel on the trolly. The only way to fix this is to disconnect the trolly from the chair, turn around, and then reconnect. This has to be done quite regularly when there’s in sufficient room in the aisle to turn around because the staff are storing stock there.

I would hate to think what would happen in the event of an emergency evacuation of the store – it surely cannot be safe.

Unfortunately this is not the first time that we’ve witnessed the store in such a state: it was like that on the previous Friday evening. It is clear that stock has to be put out on display, but why does it all have to come out at once and why are the cages that are full of rubbish not removed?

I emailed their customer services team on the 28th July but didn’t get an acknowledgement, let alone a reply.
