Openreach use 'stock photos' of someone up a pole, at a cab etc, etc, This was set up as previously the standard photo's used in FEN etc had to be paid for every time.
Word went out that we could volunteer if we wanted to, and never one to shirk a free sarnie and a day off the tools I put me name forward.....
There were maybe 8 or 10 engineers there and thousands of photo's taken, up poles (with the photographer in a hoist bucket), in a joint box, at a cab, faulting in a property (the local level 2's house) even doing E side jointing in the cable chamber below Maidenhead exchange. I was in possession of one of the original trial JDSU's and offered to get it in some pics, nope, Hawks and laptops was the order of the day. Shots of the guy at the top of the pole are still featured strongly in silhouette on company publications.
There were many photo's taken, and did they ever use any of this balding old coot ? Nope, not one, that's baldish that is.
