The Point Café Spring Menu

 

This year, Marketing Manager Marelize and I sat down to discuss creating some new images to mark the launch of The Point, Eastleigh’s new spring menu 2018.

Above all else, we wanted to showcase the venue’s family friendly atmosphere, so my vision was to create some environmental portraits which captured both the menu and the people enjoying it.

The Hotel Experience- Lila Dance

I’ve been working with Lila Dance again over the last few months on a new immersive dance performance called The Hotel Experience. Here are some shots from my photoshoot with them in the Creation Space at The Point. I love dance photography and when it is always interesting to try to capture the themes of the show in photoshoot. One of my key aims was to use flash photography to freeze moments in time or motion,  illustrating how the hotel is a place of transition. The show has a magical element to it, that the hotel itself feels somehow alive, and i’ve tried to show this through the surreal look of bodies floating above the bed. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Dancer Amy Morvell and I had a great time shooting some dance photography in Chichester last week. We started in the picturesque Priory Park, and then headed over to the University of Chichester for some studio shots.

Reaching 1000 followers on Instagram 

(updated from 500 followers a month later)
Anyone who’s launched a profile on Instagram will know how demoralising it is when you make a huge effort to gain less followers than most teenagers have without trying. So with the hope that I can save others time and research, here’s what I’ve found successful in my journey to 1000 followers.

Around The House

Dubai Street Photography

Dubai is incredibly photogenic and street photography there has a truly unique mix of city architecture and beach landscapes. The hot sun gives some really vivid colours, and high contrast images, which I think the Olympus Em5 Mark ii has done a great job of capturing.
