Trading Faces - Press Release

  Way Ahead Photography is proud to announce that Luke will be undertaking an exciting new photography project called Trading Faces. This project is already underway and expected to take several months to complete.

Cugleys of Hythe

    Inspired very much by the "Small Trades" series of photos taken by Vogue's amazing photographer Irving Penn in the 1950s, Luke will be inviting the local high street traders and business owners to pose for a portrait. In the current financial climate, the high street like so many others is finding it tough going, and Luke felt that it would be great to embark on a project designed to raise awareness of the wonderful array of diverse shops and businesses on offer in Hythe High Street.

Kate - Chocolate Deli

   The project is intended to draw out the individual characters and personalities of all the wonderful folk who make Hythe such a fantastic place to visit and to shop in. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable in their fields, they are friendly, funny and fascinating. And sometimes downright quirky too!
Loraine - Elysian Treasures

    Once Luke has photographed as many traders as possible, the plan is to hold a "safari exhibition" in the high street. The photos will be displayed in the windows of shops and businesses taking part, and the public will be invited to collect or download a map showing the location of each exhibit. As an addition to this there will be a "treasure hunt" style quiz included with the map - which will give one lucky person the chance to win a free portrait photo shoot at the Way Ahead Photography studio!
Ruth (and Harvey!) - Stuff

    Luke is already under way with the project and is looking forward to meeting and photographing as many people as possible. If you have not already contacted him and would like your business to be involved, you can contact him by phoning 07956 584178 or emailing And of course keep checking back here for progress!

The Photographer!!!
