Dear Alan and Thomas,On behalf of all of us at Betteshanger Brass Band I would like to say a massive thank-you to you and Thomas for taking our promotional photographs. Getting 30 or so brass musicians, ranging in age from 12 to 86 years old, organised should be a bit of a nightmare but your enthusiasm, understanding and calm professionalism made the whole event an enjoyable experience.
This was done on a night when we were very busy with a film crew who were recording us playing for use in the TV commercial for ‘The Music Lives On’ CD. Despite this you were patient and worked around the film crew to produce some outstanding photographs. The interesting thing is that you have somehow managed to capture the spirit and character of the individual band members and I have no idea how you managed to do that. Not everyone likes to have their photograph taken and yet there is no hint of shyness or awkwardness in any of the photos. In fact you cleverly blended into the background so that we were generally unaware of your presence and you were able to get some amazing candid shots which came as a pleasant surprise when we first saw them.
We were also very pleased with the funny shots you took which were something we would never have thought of in a million years. These have turned the ‘players’ page of our website into something a bit different from the norm and we are very pleased with the result.
We will certainly use Dover Design again and would recommend you without hesitation to anyone wanting a top quality, value for money, photographic service.
Steve Griffiths. Secretary. Betteshanger Brass Band.
