Charity Event Photographer
As a Charity Event Photographer I’m asked to cover many events in and around London. Some have celebrities as patrons and guests. Others depend largely on the goodwill from ordinary members of the public. Earlier this week I worked as a Charity Event Photographer at the Horniman Museum & Gardens. The event was the opening of the Body Adorned Exhibition by Dame Vivienne Westwood. It was also a fund raising event for the Harris Girls Academy charity called HOPE. Hope stands for Help Others Promote Enterprise. The exhibition explores how body adornment has become an accepted part of London life. it’s an interesting exhibition and well worth a visit. Especially if you’re keen on tattoos and body piercing! The museum was built to house the collection of Frederick John Horniman. A Victorian tea trader and philanthropist who began collecting objects, specimens and artefacts from various peoples of the world.
Charity Event Photographer continued.
The day featured the creativity and enterprise of the HOPE Cupcake Team at the Harris Girls Academy, Peckham. The girls created beautiful cupcakes with help from Suzanne James. The prettily decorated cupcakes were to promote HOPE and raise funds. They also made a special boxed gift for Dame Vivienne Westwood to takeaway. The Harris Academy girls are mentored by Suzanne James who supplied canapés for over 350 guests to consume on the night. I was impressed to see Dame Vivienne Westwood arrive by bicycle. No mean feat cycling up Forest Hill Road! As a Charity Event Photographer I like to cycle to jobs as often as possible. So I strongly agree with Vivienne Westwood’s views on climate change. Hence the need for us all to take action now. Try leaving the car at home and cycling more often. Hence helping to save the planet you’ll also be healthier.
