Fashion shoot for Anita Quansah - London

When I first saw Anita’s fashion jewellery I was amazed at how stunning and complex the pieces were.

Being very tribal I decided to go with a ‘street tribal’ graffiti backdrop for some of the pieces and then decamp […]

Corinthia Hotel, London

Wow….what a great opportunity to photograph the Royal Penthouse in London’s grandest hotels.
