Great venue to work with
This was my first time working at Grub as a photographer, hopefully it won't be my last, what a great venue! The staff were so helpful and really looked after me. Great communication and a lot of fun to work at. Plus it's a REALLY cool spot for photography, even on a really rainy day (the rain didn't stop that day!).
