Somerset House Fashion Shoot | London Instagrammers Meetup



A few  weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining a London meetup with some of the best Instagrammers from London and around the world. Although there were a few of these meetups happening in other cities being in London I couldn't miss this opportunity. With a few workshops to choose from I opted to do the LightRoom editing and Fashion shoot although there were others involving shots in London's  coolest underground stations, a tour of East London and plus a few more that have escaped my mind. This was all organised by London together with other profesional photographers who were on hand to give tips on taking the best photographs. We also had models on hand styled by Slow Made  with London's fashion designers the likes of Haizhen Wang, Moxham, Georgia Hardinge. You can check out more  of the pictures from the weekend on Instagram via the hashtag #wwim11_london

I will be doing some free shots with fashion and lifestyle bloggers during the weekends in May and June. If you fashion and lifestyle blogger or if you are a stylist wanting to build your portfolio then email me with a link to your blog if you would like to join these sessions. These will all be held in and around London.

Below are some of my shots from the Fashion shoot at Somerset House.

Going Beyond Victoria Falls | 14 Lesser Known Zambia Waterfalls

Image Credit

I will break up my current series of posts on Namibia with a little trip back to Zambia. One of the 7 wonders of the world and the largest falling sheet of water is of course in my home country;  Zambia. Victoria Falls is one of the most beautiful sites you will ever lay your eyes one. The whole world knows it by the name of Victoria Falls, but that's not its original name. One that locals from either side of the falls use, whether you are visiting from the Zambian or Zimbabwean side. This beautiful natural wonder is referred to by its original name of Mosi-ya-Tunya. This translates to "Smoke that Thunders". If you visit while it's in full force from the rain season you will understand where that name might have come from, as the smoke(mist) created from the sheer force of flow can be seen sometimes 30 miles away. With this mist, sometimes I would recommend seeing Victoria falls mid season or towards the rain season. This is because the visibility is poor with all the mist in the air. Not to mention  you will get drenched!

10 Things To Do In London For The Long Easter Bank Holiday

Almost every shop that you go to whether you are in for your double A batteries you will most likely have noticed that they will have piled high Easter eggs at the till in a bid to put you into some sort of Chocolate coma. Well there is more to the long Easter Bank Holiday than scoffing down chocolate. That of the loooong and welcomed few days from work!  Some with that much time on your hands what do you do? Whether its just you, your friends or if you have mini-mes at home then I have some idea that will cover you from all angles. Below is my top 10 list of things to do in London during the long weekend holidays.  For those hoping to get out of London, not to worry I have some inspiration for you too below. If you are not in London then I am pretty sure these will still help in searching out similar events in your cities.

1. Something For the Kids(and the young at heart)

London usually puts on a show during the Bank Holidays, most of which are FREE! From live music shows on the Southbank and National Gallery on the Embankment to places like Spanish Garden at the Roof Gardens in Kensington. If that's out of reach then, if you are a lover of all things covered in chocolate goodness then you and the kiddies are in for a treat, as there are various venues hosting Easter Egg hunt. From Clapham Common, Bank of England Musuem to Butlers Wharf on the Thames. Check out Timeout's list for more Easter egg hunting traditions around London. See,  its not just for the kids. There is fun to be had for chocolate loving adults too.

Namibia : Dolphin Spotting on the Shores of Walvis Bay


The morning of our last day in Swakop, Nambia I wanted to explore a bit of Walvis Bay in the last hours we had before embarking on the 5 hours towards Windheok. We wanted to be closer to the airport for the early flight to Zambia. In my previous post I mentioned that we had rented a car from Botswana. Thankfully we got my brother to drop us off at the airport in the morning before he set off on the 10 hour drive back to Maun in Botswana. I will be posting more from Botswana soon.

Namibia | The Blue Hues of Swakopmund Beach



Swakopmund is one of Namibia's largest coastal towns which draws in travellers from all over the world but a shame that not enough people know about this beautiful spot. In my previous post I showed you some of its European-style colonial architecture which takes a lot of influence its German colonisation. In my next post I will be showing you our next stop in the next town of Walvis Bay where we spotted dolpins and flamingos but not before taking to the nearby dunes. The cute town of Swakopmund is sandwiched between the dunes and the beach. So you can go from sand boarding to beach surfing within minutes. The choice of activities for such a small town is unbelievable. I may have to come back from surfing lessons but I while I was there I managed sand boarding which I have been dying to do for too long. Pictures in posts to come.
