You might remember the post I wrote a little while back about the Royalties I’ve photographed over the last couple of years?
Well, not long after I had posted the blog, I was approached by Julia Boggio Studios in Wimbledon to help photograph the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. As the most famous wedding and portrait studio in Merton (or even in the UK!) Merton Council invited Julia to capture the Royal visit to a local school as a part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations. -And I was of course thrilled to be asked to join her.
Julia is not only a very talented photographer, she is also a great writer. Read Julia’s account of the event and see more of our photos on her blog.
Tweeting about the experience on the day someone replied: ‘Photo, or it didn’t happen!’ So here is a big thank you to James Derbyshire who captured me photographing the Queen on his phone.
