What an epic Weekend…

As a freelance photographer, sometimes you look at your calendar and Have the occasional freak out when there are no bookings on the weekend.

Recently (weekend before last) that wasn’t the case. The weekend was empty but I was looking forward to the break as the week had been chocka!

But that changed quickly as I’m happy to help when last requests come my way, so What started as a free weekend quickly escalated with bookings – one for photography at Proud on the Embankment and the other a DJ set at Burlock on Duke St, London (guys souls pop down there!).

Anyway. Enough chat, here’s a sneak peek at the party photos…

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

Here are a few of my highlights:

Cabret at the Baglioni Hotel, London

Recently I had the pleasure of shooting for a really nice networking event hosted by The Convention Bureau Italy in the absolutely stunning Baglioni Hotel to introduce London Event Planners to a collection of venues throughout Italy.

The room had quite a buzz and once the networking was done, GS Live had something special in store for the guests whilst they enjoyed their delicious buffet-style Italian cuisine, a stellar Cabret group called Dolce Vita making their debut appearance.

Here are some highlights from the evening:

Read all about it: dbp images make it into a printed publication!!
