Once a month I can be found at the British Film Institute (BFI) working as the official photographer at film critic Mark Kermode's live show.

This entails working backstage to get a nice group shot of Mark with all the guests as well as joining everyone for a pre-show run though to make sure I know the order as well as the host and guests. This way I can make sure that I'm always positioned in the best possible location to get good images of both Mark and the guests which are suitable for both social media and press.

Within minutes of the show ending, the images are on my laptop and I start posting to social media (facebook, twitter and instagram) to publicise the event (with fully researched hashtags and handles where appropriate). At the same time, appropriate images are syndicated to press.

Working this way I am able to help build the reputation and visibility of any event I am employed to cover.....
