Holi One Festival

Some of my favourite pics are images from the Hindu Holi Festival. One day I would love to experience it in one it’s traditional setting, India. Over recent years it’s been promoted across different cities across the globe, so when I heard it was coming to London I had to be part of it.

Afro Hair & Beauty 2014

So I haven’t really found fashion / modelling photography very interesting, a lot of it being make-up and various manipulation to portray an image that is often pretty far from the truth. I do however like portrait photography and I suppose somewhere along the line the two do crossover.

To get some practice in I went to the Afro Hair & Beauty Event held at the Design Centre in Islington. Met some nice people and got some photos to work with. These are a quick few with no editing apart from spot removal …

Mall Takeover

Scenes like this are one of the things I love about East London. At night Skaters and Breakdancers use the Stratford mall space to practise their craft. They’ve been here for the past few months and so far there seems to be no complaints or issues about them using the space. I think I will be back here to have a chat with these guys and take some more close up photos.

Father and Son

I spent most of Saturday out shooting street photography looking for dark and broody shots, playing around with underexposure. I didn’t think this shot deserved that treatment and tried to go for a misty, nostalgia feel. It reminded me that there are many different ways to portray a moment in life through photography.

London Pillow Fight

A slightly crazy way to spend an afternoon you might say but what the hell. I think a lot of Londoners needed an
excuse to tap into their inner child and let loose, forgetting about the economy, the weather and crappy stuff in
general.
