Canford School Orchestra and Choir at The Lighthouse, Poole – Dorset Events Photographer Robert Whetton

So last minute, I get an e-mail from Canford School asking if I’m free on the Sunday evening (this is Friday, or it would have been if I actually got the e-mail.. Luckily they Facebooked me instead on the Sat to make sure I had gotten the e-mail). I dropped everything for that night, so i could spend my Sunday evening shooting at The Lighthouse instead. The spot I was shooting from was so far away from the stage, I was up on the balcony over looking the stage, a good 100 feet away, which is a challenge in itself without the hindrance of bad downward light and everyone wearing white blouses or shirts.. but I think these shots speak for themselves.

I was chatting to Canford Schools Marketing before Christmas last year about the Jekyll and Hyde play and how I thought the children were amazing. They practice singing, acting and musical skills in their own time. Which when you consider they have 1 day off a week (Sunday) and mixed in with all the other activities they do, its a testament to their hard work that these events they put on for the parents are so amazing! I feel honoured to be asked to take the photographs at these performances.
