Last weekend I was lucky enough to be asked to take part in the first ever Instameet at the Rep Theatre in Birmingham...and it was ace! Me and a selection of the @igersbirmingham regular crew were welcomed into the theatre and essentially given free reign to wander round for an hour and shoot whatever we wanted - including going up the 12 metre high platform from where they control scenery, lighting and even the occasional flying person.
The staff at the theatre couldn't have been more welcoming and it was fascinating to explore this wonderful space and see the bits of it that the public don't normally get to see. Please check out all the images posted to the meet's hashtag and give the Rep a follow on Instagram too. I heard whisperings that more Instameets at the Rep might be in the pipeline, so keep your ears open!
Here's a selection of my favourite snaps from my SLR - my iPhone shots from the day are on my Instagram.
