A Street Shoot with – Talented Photographer @_Alreadythere

It’s probably normal practice for most people, but I still find it weird reaching out to people via social media to make friends over shared interests or collaborate together…

What can I say, I’m a bit old school sometimes!

However, luckily for me, I met this Instagrammer at a friends BBQ and, to keep it short we didn’t waste too much time locking our first photography Meet-up in London for some street shooting.

Great guy and very talented.  He wouldn’t mind me saying “A King of the MoodyGrams” 🙂

Find him here: @_alreadythere

I’d like to add that usually I did this by myself or with people I’ve known, so this (you could say) was like my first Insta-Meet-up (I know that BBQ happened but the work was on Insta so gimme a break!).

Here’s a few of my favs:

Food Photography

This was a project for one of my food clients for their Ethnic Cook at home ‘Meals-In-A-Box which makes cooking these meals not only easy but also a learning experience – everything is from scratch and takes no longer than any other meal to prepare.

  • Food Prepare by published Chef, Nitisha Patel (insta: @chef_nitisha).
  • Food styling: was a joint effort by the both of us.
  • Requested editing style: The client requested images a dark moody feel.

Shoot with – Caleb & Miguel (or should it be Miguel & Caleb?!! )

I had the pleasure of meeting up with, and working with these two chaps to create some social media content for Caleb’s channels and to casually promote his company, BOLD.

Find out more about what this entrepreneur is all about and the waves he’s making in providing flexible spaces for people to meet, share and create – follow him on Instagram: @caleb_parker and @work.bold…

Happy 2nd anniversary, Fab UK Magazine

What a party this was! My first time in a room full of fashion enthusiasts and photographers and the Zoo was packed.

Back in June, this celebration started as I guess most would, with the Step and Repeat Wall photos that lead into the main area for drinks and a bit of networking and being papped.  Then our hostess, Sheena, welcomed everyone and went straight into the Miss Fab UK 2018 fashion show featuring clothing from Designer Venera Tabakin.

I just wanted to say massive thanks to Founder and Director of Fab UK Magazine, Cem and Starbelle Founder and Director, Isabelle for inviting me and my camera along – I got some great images that will be featured on the next issue!!! whoop whoop

Edinburgh welcomes dbp… 🙌🏽🙌🏽

Last week was definitely a busy one which led me to a place I’ve wanted to go to but not yet had the chance… Edinburgh.

And this is one of the reasons I love my job – wonderful people, spectacular events, delicious food, amazing venues and stunning places and Edinburgh delivered on all fronts.

The event was an all-day conference for a confidential financial so, I can’t show you any images of the event but I can show you these pictures of the venue, The Balmoral Hotel (and my Duty-Free – when in Scotland and all that!!).
