Newman Brothers at the Coffin Works



I’ve been volunteering with Birmingham Conversation Trust at The Coffin Works for almost two years now, taking promotional photos for their new leaflet, graphic-display panels and website, as well as managing their Facebook account. I am passionate about the way museums can communicate via social media platforms, so taking on this challenge has been thoroughly enjoyable. If you haven’t visited, you really should because it’s a gem of a museum and it’s currently the number 1 museum in Birmingham on TripAdvisor.

I always prefer the 'put takes' when photographing people. These two were great!
