I really enjoyed doing this wedding. Firstly Susie and Adam are a lovely couple, it was close to my house and it was in Chigwell. I’ve always loved driving around Chigwell. Its a beautiful area with some good restaurants and pubs and good houses. I would love to live in that area. Only waiting for this Friday, once I hit a jackpot on Euromillion, I’m off to Chigwell on Saturday. It was a great day and as usual the best part of the wedding, I got to meet some real good people and got to taste some amazing food. Here are some of the pictures from the day.
Faye and Trevor need no introduction. They are one of the best photographers around in UK. I’m so blessed to have done two workshops with them. They both have a great knowledge and they both love to pass that on to the other people. This was my second workshop with them. Almost three and a half hours drive from London to Somerset, early in the morning. When I arrived at Maunsel House, I just loved the very site of it. I arrived at 0730 am since I left London at 04:30 am, to avoid the rush hour traffic and I didn’t want to get stuck on the motorway. I thought if I reach there early, I would sleep in the car. But the moment I reached Maunsel House, I couldn’t sleep. It is a gorgeous place to get married. Beautiful rooms. This house is centuries old and has been beautifully maintained. I just loved the bar in the house. The walls and the ceilings are covered with weapons from all ages. From rifles to machine guns to swords to daggers. The bar was just full of them.
Started the workshop at 09:30. There were 6 delegates who were supposed to do the workshop, but only three of us turned up. Three dropped out. Lucky for us. Now 3 of us had the undivided attention of the Yerburys. Just by sitting next to them and talking to them, you can gain a great amount of knowledge. Imagine I did a workshop with them. That day I learnt that you don’t need the most expensive camera in the world neither do you need ten thousand lenses to produce a good image. Trevor and Faye both use one camera each and produce the most amazing pictures. If you are reading this, I love you both, Faye and Trevor. Thanks so much for inspiring me and spending time with me. I loved working with both of you on the workshop.

It was a bright and sunny day and once again I took a wrong turn and had a good time circling around Islington. Lesson learnt, don’t always take a turn when tom tom tells you to. Even Tom tom is wrong sometimes. This was the first christening I’ve ever done and loved photographing gorgeous kids of my colleague and a good friend Karl and his partner Orla. The church was lovely and the lighting inside the church was absolutely stunning. Here are some of the pictures from the day.
What can I say about Chef Cyrus, he is one of the most amazing chef in UK. When I say most amazing, I mean one of the most passionate chefs I’ve come across. Chef Cyrus has been a great mentor to me. He has guided me, helped me whenever I needed him, I can’t really thank him enough. Few weeks back Chef asked me to take pictures of some of his dishes. I was really very nervous on that day. I was doing a food shoot after a long long time. But once I was ready, the food started coming in from the kitchen, Chicken tikka, seekh kabab rolls, samosas, you name it. There were so many different aromas around the set. I wanted to have butter chicken with chilli naan for my breakfast that day. But it had to wait till the lunch, till the time I finished the shoot. Once the shoot was finished, I gave a pat on my back, myself. I was so happy, it had gone so well. Here are some of the pictures from the day.
Brooke Shaden is one of the photographers whose work I really admire. She is based in America and came down to England to do few workshops. She organized the workshop in Eastbourne’s Hippodrome theatre. which I believe is now closed. We got to photograph in few of the abandoned rooms, something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always wanted to photograph abandoned places and people in abandoned places. It was a great experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Met some really good people as well. Here are some of the pictures from the day.
