Photo shoot for NYnet – broadband press release

NyNet Broadband photo shootI was asked last week to produce some images to accompany a press release for NYnet

NYnet, formed by Yorkshire Forward and North Yorkshire County Council with funding from the European Union, provides a super-fast Internet network to ensure North Yorkshire is not ‘left behind’ by the rest of the world in the next phase of the Internet revolution.

Private businesses from across North Yorkshire are now able to benefit from the region’s main 45 connection hubs and NYnet has connected 800 public sector locations over the last five years.

The idea behind the shoot was to use the railway to represent connecting people in North Yorkshire.

We initially headed out to Ribblehead to see if we could capture some images using the viaduct as a backdrop but due to sideways rain and howling winds, a change in tact was essential. We knew of the steam train that comes in at Redmire station so we went down to set up.

After a quick look around we set up Ali on a beanbag on the platform next to the track and after a few test shots we waited patiently for the train. As it came in, all was ready and I took plenty of images as it approached – I have to say a massive well done to Ali for not turning around and keeping her composure as the massive train pulled up beside her. After the train departed we captured a few extra shots using the track as a backdrop, and the results can be seen below.
