I love shooting for print. There's nothing quite like getting a copy of the magazine with your picture on the cover and being able to hold it in your hands. So it was great when the latest issue of Third Sector magazine arrived with an image from my shoot with Owen Sharp, director of Prostate Cancer UK on the front.
It was great shooting Owen because he was game for anything - even standing in the rain for a few final shots outside their office next to HMS Belfast. While the directors of many companies might prefer to stay indoors, warm and dry, Owen appreciates the importance of getting out there and spreading the word about his charity, and will do almost anything to help that. Prostate Cancer is one of those illnesses that doesn't get enough coverage, and that people (particularly men) can be a little reluctant to talk about. Which is a crying shame, as more than 10,000 men die from it each year in the UK alone, and 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with it at some point in their lives. So the more people like Owen can spread the message about getting yourself checked, the better.
