Role Swapping for Children in Need

Comment 1 Standard

So, who do you get if you swap handyman gear for a tight dress, add a bit of lippy and pop on a shiny blonde wig. Why, the beautiful Edwina Vortex, that’s who!!

Looking very glam

Doesn’t she look elegant?

As you may well have guessed, there was a little bit of role swapping going on in the Basepoint Romsey office today, all for a good cause 🙂

What a hoot it was!!

Centre Manager, Kate, and Assistant Centre Manager, Sam, became “handymen” for the day and did a great job of keeping it all looking shipshape.

Whilst handyman Neil (otherwise known as Eddie Vortex) and today in his new guise as the charming “Edwina”, did a great job of running of the office; answering the phones and making the coffee!

We did have to remind “her” once or twice to adopt a slightly more ladylike pose when sitting – which, fortunately, she did 😉

What great sports, certainly gave us all a good laugh and raised £200 for Children in Need too!

Well done guys 🙂 Inspired!!!

Do you know something I love so much about this ‘job’. The sheer variety of it all!

In the last week or two for instance I’ve photographed a wedding; a very large tractor (yes, really!); the meeting room, reception area and a couple of the units at Basepoint http://www.basepoint.co.uk/locations/romsey/gallery ; a gorgeous pooch or two; of course several siblings and families, beautiful newborns, and even my mum as a model in her home!

Oh and did I mention, a vast amount of … Lego Men!!

Ha, yes, you did read that right!

In fact, the Lego characters were the props used to demonstrate some fantastic 3D bases from Base Ace to show examples of how they can be used with mini figures and building bricks for imaginative play.

The bases are the brainchild of Brian from Talking Products https://www.talkingproducts.com/

He arrived for the session along with a car load of boxes, which were promptly unloaded, and then he and his colleague started putting it all together! It was really fascinating seeing the various bases taking shape ready to be photographed. And then seeing them come to life even more as the figures were placed on them as examples of how they would look in play.

I think these bases are such a brilliant idea and I know my kids would have loved them when they were in their “Lego-building” hey day.

So maybe just the ticket for those fans of mini-figures in your life when building their little fantasy worlds.  Christmas pressie anyone? 🙂

Here’s where you can find them:

Thanks very much to Brian for asking me to photograph them.
