Essex high school prom

When I was a child the closest I got to a school prom was watching Michael J Fox in 'Back to the future'. The school prom phenomenon has reached the shores of the UK and has become understandably popular. I was really pleased when asked to photograph one as I knew I would get to photograph the joy and excitement of teenagers coming of age. It was sort of like school played out on the dance floor with everyone really having a ball.
