We would like to thank Cllr Irene Faseyi and the Crewe Town Council for their support during her term as Mayor of Crewe.
It has been wonderful to feel a part of our community and witnessing all the hard work Irene has put into restoring civic pride, and we can only hope we have contributed in some small way.
The Nantaich Jazz, Blues & Music Festival speaks to the core of what Phileas Photography is all about; capturing the spirit of the event. It is an exhausting gauntlet of acts for four days straight and we wouldn't miss it for the world. Brilliant.
We were invited to Knutsford to do another workshop. It went very well and was a great success.As this is now becoming a regular part of our year. we are going to come up with alternative ideas to keep the workshopfresh for next time.
This is the third year The Cat Community Radio has hosted this event, which recognises those who contribute to their community as well as giving them a nice evening of fun and entertainment.
Continuing work with local councils, it was Sandbach Town Council who wanted photographs of the opening of their newly refurbished Town Hall. It was a pleasure to work with them.
Having worked with Mayor Irene Faseyi in the past, it was an honour to take photographs for her Ball at Crewe Hall. It was fun to learn the term "chain gang", used for a collection of Mayors!

This was the third occasion we took pictures on behalf of the Crewe Chronicle. It was important to capture the mood and atmosphere.

After doing some work for The Princess Royal Trust, we were invited to give a talk on photography at their Parent/Carer Day. It was very well received and a lot of fun to put together.
Working with The Cat Community Radio has been a real bonus in getting to meet other clients as well as improve skills by trying new ideas at their events. At the Nantwich Show, they were broadcasting live and despite the bad weather, was a lot of fun to photograph.

Pickles Pics is another photography business who hired us to cover their calendar launch. Held at the Crewe Alexandra Stadium, it was good to take photos of people enjoying themselves, and really playing with lighting in a large room.
I was so glad we had the Status Quo concert to learn the rules, because this was the high speed version. With so many acts, we had only three minutes per act to take the pictures. There were a lot more photographers to work with and very little time to rest. It was a thrilling experience, with the added bonus of bumping into these popular groups and singers. It was also important to capture the crowds reaction. Truly amazing!
