Out of the box thinking

Thinking outside of the box. Or in this particular case, inside the violin. I photographed this violin restorer for The Guardian. He had the time to think whilst a patient for a stomach procedure in hospital. He worked out that if he could get hold of an endoscope he could perform 'keyhole surgery' on high end priceless violins without having to take them apart. Genius! #commercialphotographer #editorialphotographer #johnrobertsonphotography #photography

The droid you ARE looking for...

My photo from last week's trip to the UK's first robot restaurant in today's Daily Telegraph. Robotazia in Milton Keynes 12th Street is using the 'droids' to deliver food to tables. On the plus front it's a way to avoid Covid19 by minimising human contact. On the negative side the restaurant's owners, Mark Swannell and Joy Gittens, have received criticism,(unfairly), for taking jobs from waitresses and waiters. In fact that is not the case at all- the eatery actually employs MORE people as waiters and waitresses are still needed and take orders which are then delivered by the robots. Also somebody extra is needed to look after the robots and make sure they operate efficiently! #commercialphotographer #editorialphotographer #johnrobertsonphotography #photography

I say!

Striding out into the Autumn....

I'm hoping as we start off into September that business will really start picking up now. That's especially important for the self-employed like me as for us the last and final Covid grant from HM Govt. has been paid and we are all on our own now. Sink or swim. Adapt, improvise and overcome. Best wishes to all self-employed and freelance workers out there. Many of us may not be in the same financial bracket as portrayed by these two 'Georgian' living historians I photographed for The Daily Telegraph in Suffolk last weekend, but we are an important part of the global economy. Here's to a revival of all our fortunes this autumn and into 2021 despite the setback of the pandemic.
