PR Photoshoot at Esso Petrol Service Station at the Hogs Back A31, Tongham, Surrey

Today was an interesting job for me and in an Esso Service Station near Farnham in Surrey - I was the PR photographer who was asked to capture some images at the location along with a local optician and lens manufacturer.

The press release will give you some more info about this event and my role:

Farnham driverrs to get on-the-spot eye tests

On Tuesday 19 November, drivers in Farnham will be offered forecourt vision screening in a bid to cut accidents caused by poor eyesight.

Local optician, The Optical Studio, and Esso petrol station in Farnham have joined forces as part of a national campaign to help reduce the estimated 3,000 casualties a year where eyesight is a key factor.

Drivers visiting the garage will be offered a free check by optometrist Bejal Patel who will give on-the-spot consultations and advice.

The Mayor of Farnham, Councillor Patrick Blagden will be setting an example when he steps up to the mark to check his eyes are safe at 11am on Tuesday.

The initiative coincides with Road Safety Week (18-24 November) and forms part of the Think About Your Eyes campaign which aims to identify poor eyesight on the road and urge drivers to take extra care as the nights draw in and visibility worsens.

Dhruve Patel, optician from The Optical Studio said: “A recent study revealed one in six drivers in the South East struggled to read the number plate of the car in front and one in four worried as a passenger about their drivers vision.

“This is a great opportunity for people to become more responsible drivers and I would encourage anyone in the area to pop in and take advantage of the 30-second check. It may just save lives.”
