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

Introducing: ScrummyTV

One of my favourite things to photograph is food and recently created a handful of ‘Tasty’ type cooking recipe videos for my wellness blog DRGNFLY360’s ‘ScrummyTV‘ which will focus on curating recipes from reputable wellness professionals and enthusiasts and converting them into short and easy to follow videos.  These first 2 are just a test.

Here’s a sneak peek:

dbp: Standing Shroom 

I absolutely love how creative people can be and how their individual characters find away of showing themselves.  This canapé designed by the team at Boulevard Events was put together on the site of a recent event.

The chef who put this cup together I can only assume to be a little cheeky, quirky, humorous and loving what they’re doing and decided to stand the mushroom up making this one of my favourite shots of the day…

Recent Shoot

This image is just one from a collection I shot recently with Dj, Miss Velocity and make-up, Rosemary. 

Together we produced several Lookbooks as well as stand alones – If all shoots go as well and are as enjoyable as this one I’ll be counting my lucky photography stars!!
