There are less than four weeks to go until the identity of this year’s Hot 100 is officially unveiled – and following a month of glorious weather the photography team has been spending plenty of time outdoors capturing the stars of this year’s edition in all manner of exciting locations.
The British sunshine has inspired many of Professional Jeweller Hot 100 movers and shakers to get creative and pose for their perfect portraits against an array of wonderful – and unusual! – backdrops.
With under a month to go until the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 event, the team at Kalory, which travels the length and breadth of the country to take the exclusive pictures, will be racing against the clock this week to snap the final portraits before the Hot 100 book hits the press.
Over the years, the special photos taken for the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 souvenir book have become legendary.
Taken by the team at Kalory, the industry professionals recognised in the annual Hot 100 book have the opportunity to truly reflect their personality in an exclusive photo shoot at a location of their choice. For some this has shown their funny side, like the picture of Swag directors Tom and Edward Ferris dressed like a circus act in last year’s book. For others it has revealed their true passions in life, from gardening to painting, to escaping work in a serene location to spending every spare moment with beloved pets.
Editor Stacey Hailes comments: “I’ve already seen a few of the photos and they are amazing. I can’t wait for them to be revealed on the night. It is always interesting to see a different side to people’s personalities, and as always the team at Kalory have done an incredible job capturing them.”
Hosted with the continued support of Technology Partner Bransom Retail Systems, the Hot 100 2016 event will be taking on Sept 5 at the exclusive Kensington Roof Gardens.
The theme of the event will be a ‘Glamorous Garden Party’, with guests invited to relax in several themed gardens and enjoy a three-course barbeque.
Despite adding a meal, ticket prices are exactly the same as last year, at just £165+VAT. For this price, guests will be treated to the best networking party of the year under the starry skies of London, free drink all night, a sensational meal, and the excitement of the 2016 Professional Jeweller Hot 100 revealed live.
