Bush Telegraph

"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

Ok so this is the kind of quasi-intellectual conversation and debate fuelled by too much booze and a diminishing intellect. One of the frequently and reasonably coherant come-backs is

If there are no ears to hear, there will be no sound"

meaning without an interpretive mechanism all you have are vibrations.

Again this morning I feel like Ronnie Corbett in a golf jumper, on a 70's chair with a raconteur style-"And the producer said... Ronnie, he said..." circuitous introduction to today's point.

The point being however good my New York event is on the night, in the age of blogs and social media the event would fall on deaf ears, or indeed sightless eyes, if there was no one to record it.

The blog, anyone's blog, is like a Very Hungry Catepillar - it won't stop consuming images - it really wants to be a butterfly.

The official feeder of  The Very Hungry Caterpillar is Juliet McKee . Juliet has acquiesced to working with me again - although I actually don't remember asking her if she was available or if it was convenient. I am a fan of the 'assumptive close.' Juliet has been tasked to provide images, not only the catwalk show,  but also to scrutinise every styling detail. every glamourous 'off camera 'backstage moment and even produce a styled shoot during the afternoon.

Juliet and I worked together back in September on a shoot and it has been a great success in terms of the images it produced and the reach of it's content. However the decision work with Juliet again goes beyond her excellent and inspired photography - there are many amazing photographers I am dying to work with.

The two overriding factors are efficiency and that we have argued, then kissed and made up - figuratively speaking. I know that I will get my images promptly - while the story is relevant. I know that the images won't be leaked or sneak previewed before I have seen them. I know that if we disagree - we will,  in the words of Brian Clough,  "talk about it for 20 minutes and then we decide I was right." ;)
