Tales from Behind the Counter

 

Tales from Behind the Counter

In March 2014 a basic idea was conceived of photographing all the businesses on the Grove in Ilkley.

Due to the number of independent businesses on The Grove, this idea would be an achievable project. This was seen as a way to introduce myself and in turn, my photography business to other business owners in a way that was comfortable to me. I would offer a portrait session at my own cost to help me gain confidence in portraiture but also to hopefully get some detached constructive feedback of my photographs. The end product of this assignment was to have an exhibition at a local hall.

This exhibition is designed to get the local community behind the independent shops owners and hear about their story than just a face behind a counter.

For more information and images, see the Behind the Counter Facebook page.
