As I prepare for this years travels and teaching I’m having a good sort through archives and having a bit of a cathartic clear out. I came across this image shot on a reception desk in a hotel in Thessaloniki during one of the very first programmes I delivered for what is now PWS Greece (Photo Wedding Stories). My self imposed task was to shoot with the light available to me and ask the viewers to look hard and not simply accept what is on the surface. As a bit of mischief I changed the sign on the counter from ‘Reception’ to ‘Deception’. The moral of this story…Take a little time as attention to detail is what makes a great photographer.
