Discovering LOTT

Last Saturday I almost accidentally found the LOTT Bazaar, ‘a community shop for talented crafters to rent a space to sell their handcrafted goods and paintings. ‘ It’s in Leamington Old Town, under the railway bridge, on 37 Clements Street.

Sympathetic Magic

Yesterday I went to see Neil Moore‘s exhibition ‘Sympathetic Magic’ at Slate Art Gallery in Leamington Spa. It’s on until 1st February 2018: not to be missed.

Summer in UK

The best thing about summer is there are so many events, opportunities for shoots, places to visit, people to see. During last week I managed to visit The Thirteen Graduate Fashion Show of Coventry University, make an improvised shoot with a friend of mine, learn that our SunKissed  shoot will be published in Australian Magazine, […]
