New fashion story starring Erika Pattison at Select Models, London

Fashion editor – Jo Atkinson, makeup & hair artist – Britte Dicke at Carol Hayes Management, digital operator – Gemma Gravett, lighting assistant & behind-the-scenes photography – Julie Stewart, production – Karina Dial.

Photography by Wendy Carrig (new website) represented by A&R Creative Agency

Photographed adhering to AOP and APA guidelines in respect of Government advice on working during the Covid19 pandemic. This basically meant wearing masks throughout the shoot, social distancing, separate lunch areas, windows open (and dressing with extra layers as there was snow outside), and using loads of hand gel. On the technical side we used a back-up MacBookPro as a second monitor to enable distance viewing by the glam team.

I love the genuine emotion in this picture of model Kate Groombridge with her sons, Kate showering her boys with love and they feeling safe in her embrace under the wings of her coat. The picture has been selected for HOPE the latest group photography exhibition from the AOP which opens today and can be viewed here. I especially recommend viewing the short film by Catherine Losing, a compelling story of her family’s journey.

Exhibiting photographers have also been asked five questions :

When did you first pick up a camera and what did you point it at? I was ten and photographed my parents on a family day out at the seaside. I wanted to know how it would feel to hold the camera and press the shutter, and perhaps more importantly I had begun to realise the importance of documenting a chosen moment.

What inspires you? My inspirations constantly change. Today they are most definitely family, friends, faces, love, light, scent, touch, emotion, laughter, a secret path, big sky, trees, the sea, changing seasons, setting sun, dawn, the past, the future.

What’s been your favourite location for a shoot? Iceland and Dungeness.

If you had a time machine what advice would you give to your younger self ? Just do it, there is more than you could ever imagine.

Which of the AOP benefits are most valuable to you?  Friendship, especially with the fabulous women of the f22.

This picture is part of a series titled Heartland that I worked on with a wonderful team of creatives who all volunteer their time and creativity to producing personal projects. My thanks to art director Jo Bell, makeup and hair artist Lizzie Court, fashion stylist Maria Francolini, my assistant and forever birthday girl Julie Stewart and the forever young Kate Groombridge and family. The pictures were published in FY magazine and you can view all images from the original story here.

I photographed Alex Jones for Stella magazine in June 2020, my first commissioned shoot since the beginning of lockdown.  Working in the #newnormal means temperature checks, face masks, face visors, individual computer screens, social distancing and the constant application of hand gel.  Alex, who has been working throughout lockdown, was completely at ease with all these changes.  A calm, consummate professional, and an absolute pleasure to meet and photograph.  You can read the full feature here

I am missing the teams that I work with, the small families of creatives that come together for a day, or days or sometimes weeks on end.  The camaraderie that exists in the studio and on location where new photography is created and friendships are forged.

I photographed Claudia Raba from a distance of two metres and through glass, but this was back in January, pre-lockdown and before government restrictions on social distancing.  On reflection, this story now takes on new meaning.   It also demonstrates that as photographers/creatives we will be able to draw upon our inventiveness to help us adapt to different ways of working when we finally emerge into the new normal.

Liddie Holt

NEWS FEATURE FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF PHOTOGRAPHERS

We talk to Wendy Carrig who won a Gold in the 2019 Awards.  Wendy, a 
long term member, has been instrumental in reinstating the f22 group - 
Women Photographers at the AOP. Read more to find out about her winning 
image and the overall impact her continued involvement with the Awards 
has had on her career.


Tell us more about your Selected image and the story behind it?

This image forms part of a series of fashion portraits of photographer,
dog hotelier and ex-model Liddie Holt, taken at her home in Somerset.
This was a personal collaborative project that was later accepted for
publication.

Can you tell us something surprising about the image?

There were a number of dogs on set that day including dachshunds Ernie
and Vincent; and a gentlemen of a Giant Irish Wolfhound called big Ron.
It was also my assistant’s birthday, but she didn’t tell us! So a big
shout out to superwoman Julie Stewart!


What impact has being a gold winner in last year’s awards had on your career? 

Winning GOLD was euphoric and surreal, and I even received two new work
commissions the day after the Awards ceremony. I’ve since been invited
to speak at a number of photography colleges; and I am currently enjoying
judging SUN#31 the Shot Up North Photography Awards. Winning increases
profile and confidence, and gives conformation that the work we create
is enjoyed and appreciated. It has spurred me on to explore different
areas of photography and always challenge the perceived limits of my
own creativity.


What does the AOP do for you? 

The first year I set up on my own as a photographer I joined AFAEP and
was very pleased to have an image accepted into the Awards. That year
the Awards ceremony was held at London’s Cafe Royal and my work and
name was put in front of an amazing audience of high profile clients
and art directors. This type of exposure was a massive springboard into
the industry for me (possibly even more so in the days before social
media) and helped to immediately establish my career.  This year I
was pleased to be involved in the relaunch of f22, the AOP women’s
photography group. We aim to support AOP women photographers at all
stages of their career and challenge the continuing gender inequality
within our industry.

Have you got any advice for photographers considering entering the next awards? 

Be original. Be brave.  If you are not sure whether to enter your work
show it to your colleagues or share it on social media to help gauge
response, but make your own decisions. Take responsibility for and be
proud of the work you have created.

And women photographers, if we all enter at least one more image than
we did last year we could help make a difference to the gender imbalance
at the Awards, the AOP and the wider photographic industry.

Good luck to all!

I am truly delighted to receive a prestigious Association of Photographers' 
GOLD award!
The AOP Awards are generally acknowledged as the photography BAFTAs and
gold is their highest accolade.  There is no given with a gold; some years
there are none awarded, it is simply at the discretion of the judges.
This year there were eight golds and two of them went to women photographers,
this ratio reflecting the current statistics of women photographers working
within our industry.
I received my award in the Fashion & Beauty category, and my fellow female
awardee is the talented Tina Hillier for her Documentary series. 
Click to see all of this year's finalists.

My thanks to all of the team who worked on this story with me: Art Director
Jo Bell, Stylist Maria Francolini, Hair & makeup Lizzie Court, Photo Assistant
Julie Stewart and of course Liddie Holt & Vincent(pictured) and Forever
Young magazine for publishing.
Although the nature of our industry has changed in recent years as traditional
magazines disappear from the newsstands, it is our love of photography
that continues to fire our passion to create what we always hope will
be beautiful, memorable imagery. 
Pictured with me above are my friend and talented art director Jo Bell, and
also my wonderful and supportive agents Anita Grossman & Rosie Harrison
of A&R CREATIVE who have been representing me a record-breaking twenty five years!
Massive thanks to Clara Mercer from the British Fashion Council who judged
my category and chose my winning picture!  And to Seamus, Rachel, Nick and all
team AOP for putting on a cracking show at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf.
See you all next year!
Wendy x

p.s. The exhibition showing all 200+ Awards finalists is still on show
at One Canada Square until the end of May and, as overheard at the Awards
party, "I've just seen the exhibition and was surprised at how much better
the pictures looked in print than on my screen." Now there's an idea...

For more photography by Wendy Carrig please visit her website

Liddie Holt

The exhibition for the 2019 Association of Photographers Awards opens

My photograph of Liddie Holt with Vincent has been selected by the judges
