Award winning Colchester photographer Sophie Skipper, is celebrating her recognition as a Small Business 100 and is asking local people to join the celebrations by taking part in a unique showcase of the people of Colchester.

Sophie, who has a studio in the town centre, is looking to capture as many local `faces’ as possible on Small Business Saturday.

Anyone living and working in, or visiting Colchester is invited to receive a free professional portrait on Saturday December 1 in a pop-up studio at Colchester Town Hall.

The drop-in event is running from 10am to 4pm.

Ms Skipper said: “We want to celebrate the fantastic community that makes Colchester what it is today. Whether you have lived here for as long as you can remember, recently moved or just love to spend your weekends in this historic town, we want to capture your image.”

“I want to get at least 150 people, and would like around 200 to take part. The exhibition will be in March next year.”

“I started the business almost three years ago, after my degree, and most of my work is commercial and business-to-business.

“This is very different.”
