Stonewall FC has evolved from a few friends meeting for a training session in Hyde Park, to the most successful gay football team in the world. Stonewall FC manager Eric Najib shares the club’s decorated history and the challenges faced by the team. The amateur gay football team has won nine out of the last 10 International Gay and Lesbian Football Association Championships – making them the most successful gay football team in the world. The club also competes in the Middlesex County League Premier Division, one of the highest levels of amateur football.
Photography Talk-Shooting An International Campaign
I’m delighted to have presented this talk at the Photography Show, in it's virtual COVID 19 friendly format in September 2020. My presentation was on one of the Main Stages.
My presentation is on “Shooting an international campaign“. I was thrilled to have been commissioned by Panasonic Lumix Japan to shoot the international launch campaign for the yet unannounced Lumix S Pro 24-70mm f2.8 lens. During my talk I’ll be sharing various aspects of how I prepared for and worked on the campaign, sharing my images as well as a behind the scenes video of me shooting one aspect of the project. I’m most thankful that Lumix UK have supported this presentation.
Naturally the live Q&A I refer to in this video already happened, but feel free to post any questions you may have in the comments.
