#14 Updates

Last weekend myself and a bunch of Photographers (Jide Alakija, Trey Atarhe Mujakporue and Ade Adetayo) came together to raise some money and awareness for the children of Haiti. The event was put together by a talented make up artist Bolanle Okusanya Feyita. This was an entirely charitable event, with every artist volunteering their expertise to work together in creating beautiful images in order to raise funds for Haiti. 
It was a hell of a day of shooting, playing and hanging out. We managed to raise over £1000 (not sure about the exact amount) which was donated to the Compassion charity Compassionuk (charity registration no 1077216).
Hopefully some portraits will be allowed to go up.

Heres something different from portraits ............... FASHION .............well not completely different. I got to photograph clothes for a talented clothes designer Zsofia Weber. I worked with Phoenix Martins (Model), Anne Duncan (Make-up artist) and Segun Okelarin (stylist).

Onto something else, if you are a big avatar fan like me (no not the James Cameron one, which was awesome by the way) you will love this. I loved the cartoon series when it aired a few years back, great story and characters. The Last Airbender comes out this summer.

#13: Pose for Purpose

Hey everyone,

If you combine Contemporary Photography + Superb Makeup Artistry = Amazing Images of you whilst supporting HAITI

Just wanted to let you know about a fantastic event that is taking place on February 6th 2010 from 9am-5pm in North West London called Pose for Purpose: Haiti. A group of creatives including makeup artists, photographers and hairstylists have all gotten together to offer their services for free allowing you to have a professional photo shoot with all donations going to support the children in Haiti.

I will be helping out on the day and it would be great if any of you could make it. Here are the details below as well as links to the websites of some of the creatives involved. If you have wanted to get any pictures taken of you now is the perfect time to do it, and the best bit is that what you donate will be going forward to save and help a child. Hope to see you there.

The Event: A pre-booked professional photo shoot with fabulous makeup and superb photography for individuals and families. Each session will last a maximum of 1 hour. This is an entirely charitable event, with every artist volunteering their expertise to work together in creating beautiful images in order to raise funds for Haiti.

ALL donations received will go directly to support the children in Haiti via Compassion - http://www.compassionuk.org/, (charity registration no 1077216).

Exceptional Photographers include Ade Okelarin (http://www.asiko.net/), Trey Mujakporue (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pr0file/) and Jide Alakija (http://www.jidealakija.com/).

Your Donation: It's not about the money but about raising the awareness of the need to aid those in Haiti. Many of us can give a lot more than just money. We appreciate anything that you can give to show your support for this cause.

Your Images: A selection of your best images captured will be sent to you as electronic high resolution images that you can print and enlarge as you desire.

So whether you are updating your family records, putting together a special valentine’s day present or organising pre-wedding or post-baby albums, let us help you create gorgeous enduring memories whilst you help the children devastated by the tragedy resulting from the earthquake in Haiti.
