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…

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!!).
