I had a surprise call from the Welsh Guards regiment. Their usual photographer was away on holiday and they wanted to know if I was available the next day to do a photoshoot for them. It turned out not to be just any photoshoot though! They wanted to know if I could be their official photographer for a surprise visit by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. As you know, being a portrait photographer, event reportage photography is not my usual type of photography, but how could I say no to this amazing opportunity?!
I think it’s fair to say most people today have a digital camera even if it is on their phone. They love taking photographs whether it’s just something that catches their eye, a night out with friends or a special occasion! But how many of us realise how much we owe to Kodak and the pioneering work they did?
