He explained that he and 6 others were raising money for Birmingham's Children Hospital Charity's Star Appeal, which is helping create the UK's first centre for children with rare diseases. The centre will help provide co-ordinate care, treatment and support to help brighten the lives of the children that visit.
I of course said yes to offer my photography services and we set up a date to take the teams' photos at Chainworks Gym the location the challenge will be taking place on Sunday 18th September 2016.
I was really pleased with how the shoot went as it was an impromptu shoot without any real panning we managed to get some interesting gym images. And I'm so happy the images have been used across the board for promoting the 'Superhero Challenge', from all over social media to being applied to the side of the Challenge promo car!
