Forgive me for using this little forum for something slightly (but just slightly) off-topic for a moment, but longtime Fotofilia associate Lisa Lester has asked me to mention something rather special that’s happening this very Saturday in Birmingham.
Ever since the owners of Pleasure Ladies Nights, John and Lisa Woodward, lost their two-year old son, they have organised a charity night each year as a way of saying thank you to the unit at Birmingham Childrens Hospital that treated him at the end of his tragically short life.
That event takes place on Saturday 15th October, from 7pm, at Oceana, Hurst Street, Birmingham. As one might expect, it’s a Ladies Night featuring the UK Pleasure Boys, as well as Black Stallion, Storm, Stallion and Fabio. Hosting the evening are Miss Penny and Marty (the girl that likes to party) Smith. Theres a raffle with some great prizes and the chance to have your pic taken with the UK Pleasure Boys and the drag queens.
You’ll excuse me if I’m not there in person, I’m sure.
In addition, Lisa is inviting photographers interested in gaining experience in club/event photography to come and work alongside her at this (and/or possibly future events) in return for a contribution to the charity. Contact Lisa direct at firstname.lastname@example.org. So what are you waiting for..?
