Hard-earned/Well-deserved

Last week a dear friend of mine was awarded an OBE. It was hard-earned and well-deserved!

Surgeon Commander Anthony Lambert OBE has dedicated enormous amounts of his life to wounded servicemen (and NHS patients) – from the operating theatres out in Camp Bastion to the surfing shores of Cornwall. Known informally as ‘Doc’, his extraordinary efforts have undoubtedly made a remarkable difference to the lives of many broken lads and his determination to not just stand-by seems to increase exponentially, year on year.

The Medics Rugby Challenge is an annual event organised by Doc. Do take a look.

Welcome to his surprise party:

Well done Anthony! He’ll never wear the bloody thing.

Building a Team

Yesterday I shot some photos of an NGO team building exercise. They were on a scavenger hunt about east London.

Welcome to the brilliant people of youth engagement charity, Brightside.

The Family

Last month most of my family gathered for a cousin’s 21st birthday. It had been many years since we’d all been together and I awaited the evening with a nervous anticipation.

But what fun it all was!

Brilliant.

Making a Little Movie

A month or so ago I was asked to shoot photos and video for an 18th birthday party.

It was hugely exciting and the whole process involved, from shooting to editing, was brilliant fun. I am absolutely enthralled by the collating of footage and then piecing it together as you would a¬†jigsaw¬†puzzle. It’s great.
