dps calendar Emma Jesson.gifBack in July members of the DPS (Disabled Photographers Society) met at Coventry Airport Airbase. They were there to shoot members of the British Forces Sweethearts, who posed against a backdrop of historical aircraft, ranging from war-time de Havilland Dragon Rapide to a recently retired RAF Nimrod. Four make-up artists worked on the girls to style the ladies back into the 1950s. They were joined by Emma Jesson, ITV weather girl, and all round great sport. So what was the purpose of the shoot, one may ask? Well it was for a calendar shoot for the Forces Children's Trust, a charity devoted to helping children whose mum or dad has died or been seriously wounded whilst serving as a member of the British Armed Forces. they provide help and support for children to develop the skills needed for life.

You can buy the calendar here: http://www.beanprint.com/calendar/48/british-forces-sweetheats-2011/ It costs only £9.99 and will help raise a smile on a lonely child.

We offer DPS members 10% off, please contact the DPS chairman, Tom Molloy direct to get your code. 

 

Just a very big Thank You to Rob at Creativity Backgrounds. A large roll which was ordered a few weeks back was not needed until this weekend. Unfortunately a defect was discovered. I dropped an email off Sunday evening - and got a reply within 20 minutes. The problem is being rectified and a replacement should be with me within the next few days.. Now I consider that is service worth shouting about. Remember if you need these things for a living - trying to save a few pounds by going to some ditributor with no back up and no customer service can be false economy. Thanks again
