Top of the Shots - Good News from Adrian at Photography for Industry

Here’s one got those photographs which needs to be pondered for a while.

What is it ? Where is It ? Is it a natural phenomena or man made ? Just how big is it ?

On first impressions, it might remind you of the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland, but nothing quite so romantic or fanciful I’m afraid. Its a view down the inside of a chemical hose.

Having spent two days with hose manufacturer W.E.C. (Leeds) creating a library of new images for marketing applications, this shot was one that almost got away! Spotting an off cut destined for the trash, I noticed the pattern of internal hoops which could look quite funky with a light shining in from the other end.

This is exactly what happened and resulted in red, blue and yellow versions. With red appearing to have the most power, I subsequently entered the photograph into this year’s EEF Manufacturing Competition to feature British Manufacturing. LUCKY ME ! I’ve been nominated and Shortlisted for an award. The awards evening will take place at the House of Commons on December 14th, 2016. An exhibition of shortlisted photographs will be displayed followed by awards. Respective clients are also invited to attend.

Corporate Quiz Night

We were really pleased to partner with St David's Hospice in arranging and organising what turned out to be a very successful and fun Quiz evening at Venue Cymru on May 12th. More importantly the evening raised a considerable sum for the Hospice - further details to follow.

There was tremendous support from Barclays Bank and individual thanks must go to our own Jean Barlow and Kathryn Morgan -Jones of St David's who worked tirelessly to ensure everything ran smoothly .

Teams entered from across North Wales and we are already considering whether we can make this an annual event.

The winners on the evening were a team from Bone & Payne.

MC and Quizmaster was the Welsh Rugby international Rupert Moon to whom we offer our grateful thanks for running things in fine style.

Lord Mostyn accepts invitation to become President of the NWBC

Lord Mostyn (R) with NWBC Chairman David W Williams (L)

The Club are delighted and honoured to announce that the 7th Baron Mostyn has accepted our invitation to become President of the Club, succeeding the late Lady Iris Brierley.

Many members of the Club will have attended our recent dinner when the formal announcement was made and Lord Mostyn said a few words of acceptance. It is very appropriate that Lord Mostyn’s late grandfather, the 5th Baron Mostyn, was also President and as a Club we are very proud of this continuing Mostyn association.

Lord Mostyn succeeded to the hereditary title in 2011 and has taken great and practical interest and management in the continuing development of Mostyn Estates where he is life tenant of the estate. He has also involved himself in many community and charity projects in North Wales and largely bases himself at the historic family seat of the Mostyn family, Mostyn Hall in Flintshire.
