I accidentally entered stage left in a moment of fade to black during the technical lighting run-through, and I had clearly picked the wrong door to make my entrance. Thankfully, I was soon rescued by a man in a smoking jacket and slippers, who told me not to worry and then gave me the lowdown of what was required of me.
No, I hadn't got my cue hopelessly wrong, I was indeed in the right place, the place being the John Gielgud Theatre at RADA. I had been assigned to photograph the dress-rehearsal for the John Lewis Partnership Dramatic Society's production of the Wilkie Collins favourite, The Woman in White. Only a few weeks before I had been on a boat photographing humpback whales, this time, I was in the cosy surroundings of a Victorian theatre set.
Such is the diversity of my assignments but it is what keeps it all fresh and interesting. So, throw down a challenge and I will give it my best.
