Today it’s Jet2 holidays launch at London Stansted, my role as photographer is to capture the event for both MAG airports press office and Jet2 holidays PR department.
It’s 05:00 am at check-in for a few bleary-eyed group pics then out to the apron for boarding at sunrise and what a cracking dawn it was!
With my photo brief in hand I worked through the list of management shots, crew greeting passengers, families boarding and generic aircraft pictures before my 07:30 deadline – first two flights departing… Main focus on branding and friendly service.
No time for coffee, straight back to the terminal to download the pics, edit my selection of 80 plus pics and uploaded high and low res versions for the PR media machine to start it’s social media frenzy by 09:00!
Time for a quick coffee and Danish before wave two starts as passenger’s check-in for the lunchtime flights. A real buzz in the terminal as the Jet2 hospitality team gave away free holiday and discounts – the kids loved it. Time for more group pics and the cake cutting whilst snapping the party atmosphere.
11:00 and camera now full with wave two pics it’s time to head back and edit them before uploading another 40 or so favourites to the main set. Time for the media team to get them out to the world once again.
13:00 and my jobs done – starving but still buzzing and ready for my next commission…. Check out the Jet2 website for your next holiday at https://www.jet2.com/
Wow, loving these pics 🙂 What an exciting launch it was! Thanks, Holly – Jet2

Award winning photograph ‘Time to Go’ taken on my Landscapes photography workshop by talented student Glyn Collins. Here’s what Glyn had to say:
Hi Tony, it’s Glyn Collins here, I attended one of your courses earlier this year and you used one of my shots, ‘time to go’ on your web site.
Just thought I’d let you know that I won a category in the Touching The Tide photo competition for ‘The changing coast”, and the shot ‘time to go’ came second in the ‘people’ category. I also got a nomination for the overall landscape winner.
Thought I’d let you know as it was you who encouraged me to enter so thanks very much!
Here’s a b&w image I took in Oct 2010 along the river Alde opposite Aldeburgh yacht club. This brand new boat held it’s mooring that day but smaller dingy’s ended up in Holland! A poweful gust blew me off my feet too… View gallery
A great example of a pictures worth a thousand words – The owner of this Aldeburgh seaside holiday property was thrilled after their holiday bookings tripled in just 8 weeks after commissioning me to re-shoot it, the agents web pictures were then replaced and relaunched with my new beautiful interior photographs and the bookings jumped from 3/4 to 11 within 8 weeks on the two previous years. If you know someone with a holiday home that’s not getting the bookings it deserves from their agent call us….
Hilary and Roger arrived for today’s landscapes photo training workshop as complete beginners and 3hrs later left as very competent photographers with a full understanding of their own camera’s. We drank coffee and stayed warm in our fab new studio covering the technical stuff like manual, aperture and shutter speed priority before heading out along the river putting it in to practice. Well done guys, arctic conditions out there today but we wrapped up and had a lot of fun.
