I was delighted when Annette got in touch in search of an event photographer to document Edwin’s 60th birthday party at the Royal Motor Yacht Club in Sandbanks, Poole. Lifestyle and reportage photography was required of the birthday party capturing the natural atmosphere and guests enjoying the celebration.
The RMYC is perfectly situated within Poole Harbour on the Sandbanks Peninsula, with spectacular views over looking Brownsea Island and the Dorset coastline. It’s a fantastic venue for parties and wedding receptions. The weather was ideal for the drinks reception on the gun deck, as more guests arrived the atmosphere grew. I was able to document friends and loved ones enjoying themselves, unobtrusively through reportage photography, whilst taking the occasional impromptu group photo. The birthday party included speeches and buffet style food served in the clubhouse.
A special mention for Neville. I’ve included a photo when he was serving drinks, he started working at the RMYC in 1952. Fantastic guy!
