The biggest thank you must go to all of the people in the Church Street area who put their trust in me and had their portrait taken. Thank you for all of your enthusiasm about the project and for taking part. I literally could not have done any of this without you.
Face Forward would also not have been possible without all of the following people and organisations’ help, advice and assistance:
Mike Hartley who created this website, using ‘The J A Mortram’ WordPress Theme which he developed. The full-screen photo galleries are fantastic.
All of my photographic assistants:
Andrew John Simpson
Ismail Ali for his artisan coffee and delectable snacks served at his pop-up brew bar in the studio on our shoot days.
Martin Bell at Fruitmachine Design
Hannah Watson at TJ Boulting & Trolley Books
