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…

The Power of Event Design

It’s so great attending an event where you walk away feeling like you’ve learnt something, and I get to do that every time I’m shooting for Event Huddle.

The most recent topic was on The Power of Event Design discussed by Robert Dunsmore, Georgie Moran and Jordan Waid and chaired by the amazing and honourable Kevin Jackson.

I definitely recommend watching this (and other recorded) discussion here

Whoop, whoop – Shortlisted for Event Photography Awards 2018

I have just had some great news.  After 2 judging sessions, I’m so pleased to say that I have been once again shortlisted for the Event Photography Awards and this time for the Wedding and Corporate Events categories for images taken last year.

With so many more entries this year, I really am so excited to have gotten this far and you’ll see what I mean when you see all the amazing images shortlisted here

Special mention to Splento, OffToWork and absolutely everyone who entered.

Best wishes for the final judging…
