Okay, I know this is a little late but here we are! We have arrived in 2018!!
2017 was a wonderful year for me, I met many new faces and traveled to far away lands (I’m still working on my Jamaica blog post). I learned a great deal about myself and what I am seeking for my future.
I can’t believe we are already a week in to the new year, where has the time gone?
Is it too early to ask you how your new year’s resolutions are going? Have you accomplished any?
I hope for this new year to be a spring board, pushing us all into the good things that are to come. I hope this year brings more chances to venture to new places and meet more new faces.
However you celebrated, I hope this year will bring you hope, good health and happiness!
During my second year of university at De Montfort University, I was working on a project where I was taking long exposure pictures outside at night when I bumped into Emjay, we started talking and she asked me to take a picture of her, so I snapped a couple and sent them to her.
She loved them and asked me if I wanted to photograph the Pharmacy Ball for the students; I was interested in doing more work with the organisations at the university, I jumped at the opportunity!
The event event was held in the beautiful Mercure Hotel in Leicester; looking at the building from the outside does not do it justice. As I entered through the main doors I was amazed at the beauty of it, it’s like you’ve traveled back in time to the 19th century. The interior is just something else!
As I made my way through the hotel, I climbed the staircase that led to the ballroom and as I entered the ballroom I was left breathless. It was
8 Years ago when I was still in the early steps of my journey to being a photographer; I received a call from my friend Tom explaining that he was turning 18 in a few weeks and he wanted to mark the occasion with a party and wanted to book for me for the party.
It was a beautiful party, with all of Tom’s friends and family coming together to celebrate his special day. Tom’s parents had created an inviting atmosphere, there was music playing, the drink was flowing and people were laughing and telling stories of Tom. It was a wonderful evening.
I am really happy with how the pictures turned out. You can see more pictures from the party here.
A few years ago, I joined a team of creatives who were inspired by the world cup that was held in Brazil. The beautiful earthy colours, the greens, yellows and blues spoke to them. We wanted to create a series of pictures depicting this beauty. We found some beautiful models, and some designer clothes kindly gifted to them, they even found a funky little Brazilian restaurant to hold the photoshoot in.
Here are some of my favourite pictures from the shoot.
In the Winter of 2014 my good friend Boris graduated from De Montfort University. His family and friends were coming up to celebrate and wanted to have some pictures taken before the ceremony.
We started taking pictures early in the morning, the light was
beautiful that day and I decided to utilize the natural light in my
After capturing this portrait I guided the family round
to one of my favourite spots at the university and this is where we
captured the rest of the images.
The pictures came out really
well, everyone looked great and Boris walked away with his certificate
and a series of beautiful images that are now hanging on the wall in his
parents’ living room.
