You don't want none of that crap meat from the Supermarket!

by Paul Hands

I had a great chat with this chap who runs the oldest Butchers shop in Coventry City Centre.  I was working on a commercial photography shoot for Coventry City Council when I came across this shop and the bloke really wanted to talk.  My job as a professional photographer leads me in to all kinds of places and talking to all manner of different people from all walks of life.  It's such a rich job in terms of the social aspect.  I don't know where I'd be without my camera!   To think I actually worked in an office for 12 years selling stuff for someone else to someone else.  You know I've never worked as hard as I do now I work for myself!  It's my business and I'm gonna do everything in my power to make it work for my family.  Anyway, back on track... This bloke let me photograph him, I love the depth of field in the image and would consider entering this in to an International competition I've got my eye on!
