Pineapple and floral

  I’ve just returned to London after spending almost a month in Hong Kong, catching up with friends, meeting PRs, riding my bike in my home town in Tai Po, shooting with clients, and busy complaining about how hot and humid in Hong Kong really is!  Afterall, I’m really impressed how tanned I really am, tanned with a golden glow of latte. To celebrate the arrival of spring in London (still freezing as it has always been since I left London in mid-April), I’m wearing a floral print tunic top, paired with ripped, boyfriend jeans both from ASOS, pastel pink court shoes from LK Bennett, sunglasses from Topshop, cap from Urban Out...

Lulu Guinness for National Aids Trust

Last year I had the privileged to photograph the darling of all hearts, the luxury handbag designer Lulu Guinness for her partnership with National Aids Trust 2014.  Lulu designed a limited edition NAT red ribbon brooch to help raise awareness about the real facts of Aids and HIV. It was a very quick portrait shoot like all designers and creative professionals, Lulu was a very busy person so we had 5 minutes to spare to get the shots right for the official portrait for NAT’s press release.  In the end we got what we wanted and I pleased to share the photo with you.
