My Friends at the Town of Pendle England approached me this month to request the use of my face as a trademark for their new campaign to promote more responsible drinking during the up coming holiday season. I agreed to their request to use my face (I know ... I can't quite figure it out myself), however, being an up and coming photog I requested that they allow me to come up with the shot. I pitched the idea of the crazy juggler with the backwards baseball cap, juggling a series of various drinks and the town bought the concept.

This shot is what I came up with.

I wired the glasses in my backyard very much the same as the pumpkin and fruit shots, and stood in for the shot. I thought the tea cup was a very nice touch :D

Many thanks to my wife Sandy for helping with the set up. And a big thanks to the Town of Pendle for once again giving me a great opportunity.

Cheers! Remember to Drink and juggle responsibly this Holiday

Merry Christmas to all at DPC !!!

Oh no! Not again.

Your last poster up here in lovely Pendle has just been covered up by a 'British Gas' one. Now I'm going to have to keep looking at you for another couple of months ;-)

Hope they didn't pay you too much as I wouldn't want my council tax bill going up again.

Congrats Coley.
I'll take some snaps again when they are up.

Haven't I seen this before, but with pumpkins? You are quite the juggler. Try not to spill your drink.
