Huge thanks again to the judges for making their selections, and also to the talented team involved in the fashion image, and to Kate Morrissey and her son for their generosity of time whilst I created the documentary image.

Recently our government tried to take away our right to protest, but thousands of people and the House of Lords stood up to them and won! Did you know our government is now trying to introduce another bill!

If you value your right to protest please sign this Greenpeace petition calling on the Home Secretary to “…drop proposals in the Public Order Bill that have already been rejected by the people and Parliament, and to put an end to all attempts to suppress the fundamental right to protest.”

Thank you for stopping by.

What a joy to work with the lovely Lisa Snowdon again! I began photographing Lisa in the nineties for various brands and publications, and worked with her more recently here. You may know Lisa for her work in TV & radio presenting. She has also created the Get Lifted podcast encouraging conversations around self-care and the menopause.

Women can often feel invisible when they hit their fifties, and so clothing company Kaleidoscope created their #circa50 campaign to help address issues around ageism. To support this they chose to work with a creative team who also fitted their #circa50 criteria. It was really refreshing to work with a fashion brand who want to celebrate age “both in front of and behind the camera.”

Many thanks to the brilliant team – L to R : Zoe Irwin hair artist, (Wendy Carrig photographer), the fabulous Lisa Snowdon, makeup artist and perfumier Amanda Grossman, and fashion director Tracey Sayer . Team photo by digital operator Gemma Gravett and studio lighting by Julie Stewart. My special thanks to Ed Watson and team at Prew for making this happen.

To see more of the campaign featuring Lisa and shot by me, do check out this great feature by the good people at The INDUSTRY Fashion.

This is Kate Orr wearing the grey dress, or as she calls it “the brown dress”.

My lovely spotty brown dress caught my eye in Primark and became a staple item for castings back in the day. I seem to remember a few of us (models) had that dress at castings. Nobody minded, we all wore it differently. I kept my dress for about 10 years and wore it a lot. It was still good to go when I sent it to the charity shop. I have a few key items in my wardrobe that I have had for over 10 years, and I still wear today.”

Many thanks to supermodel Kate Orr. Hair & makeup by Dina at Frank Agency. Styling by Kate Orr and Sophie Kenningham at Frank Agency. Photo Assisting by Julie Stewart. Extra special thanks to Art Director Jo Bell. Photography by me Wendy Carrig at A&R Creative agency.

This grey dress was bought from a charity shop and shows a ‘made in Spain’ Primark label. But #whereismyfabricfrom and #whomademyclothes? Any clues?

No new clothes were purchased in the production of this photoshoot.

We were the only passengers on this voyage, cruising through the calmest waters on the hottest day.

Many thanks to this wonderful team – models Cindy Robbins at Models1 and Nicola Griffin at Milk Model Management…

…makeup artist Nadira Persaud, hair artist Ian Mackintosh, fashion editor Wendy Rigg, fashion stylist Becky John, the fabulous team of Louise Robinson, Jasmine Perry & Gavin Shaw at Saga, and my super team Julie Stewart & Will Richards.

We sailed on into the night aboard the cruise ship Spirit of Adventure.

The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again, and again. I have been photographing this dress for ten years and I want to know more about it’s origin. I want to know #whomademyfabric and #whomademyclothes? If you have any advice on how I can achieve this, please message me. I would love to hear from you.

The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again and again. Refashioned by each of it’s different wearers. 100% cotton, but where was the cotton grown? How was it harvested? #Traceability I have been photographing the Grey Dress for ten years and now I want to know more about it’s origin. I am going to become detective and see how far back along the chain I can go in finding out #whomademyclothes?

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!
