Production Managing for Charity

There are those moments in your life when you have the pure pleasure of meeting amazing people who are doing some truly incredible things.  My most recent of these moments was meeting and assisting the non-profit team of A Leg To Stand On, an organisation dedicated to working with treatment providers in Asia, Africa and Latin America to provide free high-quality and continuous orthopaedic care to more than 18,000 children in need within their program.

It was magic to hear how much of a difference this program has made to so many and being a part of this fundraiser was an absolute honour.

Here’s a sneak-peek at the ‘Rocktober’ event complete with a silent auction and billed performances from garage bands from within the financial businesses that support the cause…

Food Photography

This was a project for one of my food clients for their Ethnic Cook at home ‘Meals-In-A-Box which makes cooking these meals not only easy but also a learning experience – everything is from scratch and takes no longer than any other meal to prepare.

  • Food Prepare by published Chef, Nitisha Patel (insta: @chef_nitisha).
  • Food styling: was a joint effort by the both of us.
  • Requested editing style: The client requested images a dark moody feel.

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.

Jessie Pavelka #PavelkaLive

What an amazing evening at the first of Jessie’s talks on leading healthy and active lifestyles.

I have been fortunate enough to have been the photographer at last night’s event and I have to say, with my personal performance enthusiast and coach hat on, this was an amazing, information and inspiring event and to see the positive impact one person can have on another’s life is truly wonderful…

From activity to eating, mindset to relationships he presented his Four Elements to lifestyle change.
