Family session in Shepperton

These two lovely boys are Alex and Oliver. I had the pleasure of meeting them and their Mum on the only hot and rainless day that we’ve had this week.   We went to a very quiet park near their home in Shepperton for some outdoor fun.

The Windsor Triathlon 2011

Last weekend I went to work at another event of the 2011 British Triathlon Super Series. Got to lovely Windsor very early in the morning and after a few hours of sunshine the hard rain and cold wind got there to stay for the rest of the day.  This didn’t make things easy for competitors but it was still a great day out.

The Blenheim Triathlon 2011

This weekend was a very busy one as I was for two long days photographing the competitors at the Blenheim Triathlon.  It was very exciting to be part of the second biggest triathlon of the UK and I was also lucky to be able to see F1 Driver Jenson Button and Olympic Athlete Iwan Thomas after they crossed the finishing line. Here are some of my favourite shots of competitors and celebrities.


Race for life | Cancer Research

Working for a day for a local sport events photography company I went to photograph the ladies taking part in the Race for Life – Battersea Park 2011.  It was a great experience to see all the amazing volunteers and supporters of Cancer Research  – this event alone brought together around 4000 women!  So I truly believe in “Together we’ll beat Cancer”.  Here is a preview of some of my photos on the day. If you’d also like to take part and help cancer research please visit www.raceforlife.org


Surbiton girls

Last week I went to Surbiton to take some pics of these two gorgeous sisters. What a lovely sunny day we had. Here are my favourites photos of the day:

 

Afrocaribe

Afrocaribe is a dance group that has taken part in Colombia’s largest annual celebration – The Carnival of Barranquilla – since 1995 and has around 180 members. After months of preparation the musicians and dancers of Afrocaribe, some as young as 4 years old, come out to show their passion and talent throughout the 4 days of festivities.

 

I was lucky enough to get close to them during makeup and follow them on one of their parades. It was great to share in the excitement of getting ready and really have to admire them for keeping going in searing midday temperatures of 40ºC wearing costumes that can be very heavy.

 

So far they’ve won 12 prizes at the event that is second only to the Rio Carnival in terms of size and really stood out from the rest of the groups in my (totally unbiased) opinion! :)  Check out the full gallery here

 

 

Barranquilla’s Carnival

At the beginning of March this year I had the opportunity to go to Colombia and be part of the country’s biggest carnival held in Barranquilla city. The carnival lasts for four days and there are festivities all around town for all ages and  budgets.  I have chosen a few of my favorite pics taken during one of the parades where the children were the stars of the day.



Arhuaco Tribe

During my short stay in Colombia, I was lucky to meet a family of Arhuacos – a native American ethnic group from Sierra Nevada in Santa Marta. There are around 9000 of Arhuacos left and they all live in the upper valleys of the rivers in northern Colombia. When I saw them I knew I had to have a photo as not very often you get a chance to get this close to them in town. I love the little girl’s expression and she was nice enough to smile for me.


Nowruz 2011

I was asked again this year to photograph these two gorgeous siblings as part of their 2011 Iranian New Year celebrations. Both have amazing eyes and you can see what I mean here:
