Hello! A quick update this time around. Yesterday I had a preliminary chat about photographing the Sussex Symphony Orchestra’s 2012 brochures and promotional materials. The orchestra, made up of professionals and those of similar standards but who have chosen other walks of life, students and gifted amateurs, is a representation of the wealth of talent in the Sussex area as only those who live or work here are invited to play.
The orchestra, run entirely by a team of dedicated volunteers who do everything from hiring music, sorting out seating, selling tickets to the designing of the promotional material show an immense amount of pride in the work that they do which comes through in the work they produce.
I had the pleasure of working with their in-house designer, Kate Benjamin, last year and after bouncing some ideas around we came up with a nice little piece on how the Sussex Symphony Orchestra is more than just another orchestra like any out there. This was Sussex’s orchestra! Not just for a select few, it was made of up the people living and working in the area and it was a family affair. We highlighted some of the couples and families that had been formed because of the orchestra and I think we ended up with a lovely result.
With the SSO happy with the end product, and feedback being quite positive it looks as though they’re happy to continue developing our working relationship. I can’t say I’m unhappy about that! I’ve already started putting together a few ideas for this year, and can’t wait to start working with the orchestra and Kate again. and don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted about those developments here as well.

More too come.
