Helping During Lockdown

The Latest

Just before lockdown I had an ‘a ha’ moment while enjoying the freedom and Manx sunshine on a daily walk.

I decided to reach out to some local businesses and arrange some personal branding photoshoots to help them for when they were allowed to open.  So in this blog I am going to introduce you to Lee Watson who co owns Extreme Art & Gadgets here in Douglas on the Isle of Man.

I worked with Lee many many years ago at the local newspapers selling advertising space in various publications.

So lets talk about the business. Extreme was established in 2004 selling signed  sports memorabilia.

Their core business and area of expertise is the Isle of Man TT Races, this is the most thrilling motorcycle race in the world, this brings tens of thousands of people to the Isle of Man in June (sadly this years event was cancelled due to Covid-19).

    Huge thank you Jason for your wonderful gesture towards our local small business in these unprecedented times.
    Life is not always about what we can get for ourselves, it’s also about what we can do for others and your thoughtfulness is a credit to your photography and the ethics behind the person you are.
    Your kindness will not be forgotten.
