Shoot with – Unicorn Events

I had the pleasure recently of visiting actual Unicorns…!  Okay, before you think I’m crazy, obviously not the fantasy ones!  The Unicorn Events Unicorns and their new hires.

As you would’ve heard, Unicorn Events, Led by the original Unicorn Hannah Luffman, have been growing at an incredible rate and I was invited into where the magic happens (East Croydon) to do some headshots of the team for Unicorn Event’s new hire announcements…

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…
