Mike Tawse V Our Stairs: Some Things Are More Important Than Rules
Matthew received a call from Mike Tawse requesting a photo shoot in his studio for an upcoming book. Mike has cerebral palsy and so the shoot posed a few challenges, not least a flight of stairs! Sadly, Mike had received the cold shoulder from other studios he had contacted…
“…What with health and safety it’s more trouble than it’s worth…”
Having already agreed to accept the commission, and hearing about Mike’s experience with other photographers, Matthew was even more determined to assist. Mike’s a thoroughly nice chap and together we proceeded to break every rule in the health & safety manual getting him up and down stairs… but ya know what, it was the least we could do, particularly for such an inspirational guy who has overcome so many obstacles throughout his life.
