Can anyone help Chris Stringfellow?
If so, please see e-mail below:
“At present I am creating a website ‘Heritage Trail’ for St.Mary’s Parish Church Lewisham and inquiring if any of your members would be interested in assisting.
I have arranged two photographic sessions with the V&A Museum to photograph 10 pieces of silverware they have on loan from the church. Although I am prepared to do this myself I have no real experience of photography or the best equipment. Would any of your members with more expert knowledge be prepared to accompany me on Wed 25th May, the session is booked from 2-4pm and take these photographs. There is another session on Wednesday 1st June, which has to be confirmed with the museum.
I also intend to take 360-degree images of at least 2 of the pieces, a simple but time consuming process. When digitally manipulated this would create a rotating image on the website. You can find the webpage, which is in development at http://www.lewishamparish.com/silver.html the two images on this page were taken by the V&A. I am creating the site with no fee and can only provide travel expenses.

Hope to see you all this evening.
