Wakefield commercial photographer shooting for The Stroke Association
Today I was at Snow Zone over at teh Xscape leisure centre in Castleford where my brief was to shoot some press/pr images on behalf of The Stroke Association. The shoot was to illustrate how life is still possible after a stroke and that there are many activities that stroke victims may still be able to partake in with a little help from The Stroke Association. Carl had unfortunately had a stroke in his early thirties but has always dreamed of taking up skiiing again and now, some years later, he is participating in a programme aimed to get him back on the snow slopes but this time on a sled rather than skis. I was there to photograh Carl’s first lesson with an insturctor and covering the introduction of the equipment, the saftey checks while on the slopes and then, of course, his first run down the slope in the sled. At this time, Carl needs accompanying but eventually he should be able to use the slopes unaided. I wihs him all the best in his hobby.
