|NEWSLETTER - May 2011|
A client recently asked our photographers for photos of the sport of 'extreme ironing'. Along with examples of ironing in caves, canyons and on a kite buggy, our client's favorite was scuba ironing at some 50 metres below the surface. Anyone who has been scuba diving will know that getting to 50 metres is a major challenge, let alone setting up an ironing board, lighting it beautifully and photographing it!
For sheep, there can't be anything much that is more extreme than being herded by a Rottweiler, but our photographers helped out promptly when this was what a client required.
Even with requests as mundane as a Kenyan Bureau of Standards stamp, or as deceptively simple as a few ice cubes melting in a person's hand, our photographers continue to show that if you are having trouble finding images of specific subjects, our Picture Search service really will get results!
