On Friday 1st March (at 7am!) I had an appointment with ice skating coach Chrissy Richards, to capture some images for her website.
Chrissy is a former professional ice dancer and Team GB competitor, who now freelances at Lee Valley Ice Centre in Waltham Forest, teaching children and adults to skate. She contacted me via my website and, as with all potential bookings, I wanted to know what the pictures were for and how she intended to use them. This helps me to plan and ensures that I get exactly what each client needs, and is particularly important if they work in an industry that I have not previously experienced.
Chrissy wanted candid shots with some of her students, together with examples of the tricks and techniques she's taught them. Her primary objective is to increase her current level of bookings by attracting new students. Her youngest client is only three years old and all of the students I saw that morning appeared confident on the ice due to Chrissy's hands-on approach and supportive nature.
I used my longest lens so that I didn't have to get on to the rink. Me + Ice = Disaster!
This is a small selection of the shots taken on the day.
