Behind The Scenes: 5,000 Followers Photograph

We are over the moon that we have reached 5,000 followers on Instagram! We would like to say a hugeeee thank you to all of our wonderful popcorn fans from far and wide and high and low! Of course we wanted to mark the occasion on our Instagram page and so we decided that a group photo with our trusty mascot, Bob, (on our logo) was in order!

As with anything, when the Portlebay Team gets together it is always a raucous affair, with a great amount of laughter and hilarity, and this photo-taking occasion was no exception. For those of you that have ever tried to organise a group photo, we are sure you can understand the difficulty of trying to get everyone positioned, looking and smiling in the right direction, along with the ever unpredictable weather conditions that add a whole new level of challenging to the situation (for us it was a rather blustery day)! With everyone happy to pause their popcorn-related tasks for a short period and jump outside into the sunshine, there was extra excitement and so this simple task became, well…. tricky (but of course it was still wonderfully entertaining for all!)

With this entertaining afternoon turning into a hopeless photoshoot, we managed to capture a range of unsuccessful but amusing snaps, that we thought we would share with you! Have a peak below at a small selection of our not so triumphant snaps…

 

You may have guessed that we attempted the classic jumping team snap, however after a long while of trying, we gave up and settled for smiles and happy arms! It was for the best.
