Amazing talents emerging at Pride in London this year

There are some amazing new talents that are emerging through the likes of Pride in London. These guys and gals have developed acts that are very entertaining and some of them will definitely be ‘on the scene’ within the next year or two. I photographed these folk performing this week in the pubs like The Two Brewers (Clapham), the Bloc Bar (Camden) and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Look out for them both in the final and also at Pride itself.

Behind the Scenes for Homeless Ashes -the trailer

One wet cold day a small team of people were seen marching round South London, cameras in hand to make a trailer for what will be an amazing film. Marc Zammit and the team had raised the funds for this trailer and I was there to capture some of the moments. Here are some photos behind the scenes taken for the making of the trailer ‘Homeless Ashes’.

Winter colour at Ness

Colour is less obvious at this time of year – yet in the amazing winter light it has a vibrance all of its own – like with this amazing red winter kale seen at Ness Gardens.

Amazing fireworks displays at Eastnor Castle

I have always loved fireworks, and I saw an amazing display at Eastnor Castle, in Herefordshire last weekend where three firework display specialists competed. All three displays were astonishing, as was the display put on by the organisers MLE as the finale. Here are some photos from a very memorable evening.
