Photography: Some of my first portraits, and all in the name of charity!

Asha_Charity_Shoot_RA-4I think I finally have enough confidence to start sharing a bit more of my non-live music photography.

Way way way back in early spring I had the blessing of being asked to shoot for a local charity shop called Asha.  It specialises in selling South Asian clothing and then donates the proceeds to a number of charities helping to fight poverty in the region.  Little did they know I had only shot about two portraits beforehand so didn’t really have a clue what I was doing!  A friend of mine who I showed my first ever pics to put me in touch and heady optimism encouraged me to give it  go.

I set-up my make-shift studio in my mate’s living  and went on to create a few hours of semi-organised chaos!  I had tons of fun though and learned more than I could have imagined.  Really, really grateful for Asha for giving me the chance to practice with them.  Thought I would share some of my favourites here.

You can support Asha (and see a few more shots) over on their website, please do because its a great little charity run by absolutely lovely people – http://www.ashacharityshop.com/index.html
