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…

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

EventHuddle: New Gallery Page / Next Event

This is very cool.  I’ve been working with EventHuddle as their photographer for quite some time now and I’m so pleased that they have recently added a Gallery to their website which features the images I captured of past events as well as a little bio of yours truly…  Awesome!!!

Event Huddle Apr 2018-57

Looking forward to the EPAs…

Today is the day where the winners of the Event Photography Awards will be revealed…

I’ve been shortlisted for two of my photos from last from last year (see Whoop, whoop – Shortlisted for Event Photography Awards 2018 post) and after a quick job this afternoon, I’ll be scrubbing up and heading to the British Museum for the ceremony.

There’s thick competition which is great and I’d like to take this moment to wish everyone the best (and of course, a little bit more for me! te he he!!)

Standby for a follow-up post to let you know how I did (obvs) and also share some of my favourite fellow-shortlisted images for the event…

 

See you on the other side.

 

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

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:

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…

Featured image by @hiroarts – it looks a bit smug but we were having such a great time in this interview and, for those that know me unto well, I like to have a laugh and this was one of those moments…

Well done to the FF15 Mentees

Happy International Women’s Day!!

It is a stroke of serendipity that I’m writing these congrats to the mentors and mentees of Fast Forward 15, a program to help passionate female events professionals excel in what has predominantly been a male lead industry.

Back in the game was packed with retro gaming fun, auctions and amazing prizes and they were able to raise over £1,000.00 for charity.  What a successful night and what a way to mark a solid milestone for this team of mentees.

Well done ladies and thank you for inviting me to support the cause once again with my photography sponsorship…

Should you need photography, remember me during your career… 🙂
