The Women In Me 2017 Event

It was a very nice experience to join Women in Me, the yearly event. This year was my second time join the event. I was a guest speaker, talked about women confidence and how to look better in photos. Thanks to the organisers that I had the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with other women. Every year is different, there were new stands and new faces. This year we’ve got many skin care brands to share with us their products and they are very generous giving out samples. I’ve also got the information about there is a mental health course organized by Richmond Foundation Malta. Here is the link if you’re interested. http://www.richmond.org.mt/mhfa/ So much great information all in one event! If you missed this year’s The Women in Me”, make sure to join us next year.

Raise your glass

Two things I would like to share with you all today, hope you have a glass of “something” at hand, we have things to celebrate. Recently 2 of my very good friends have made great achievements and make us proud. Josette Fenech, an abstract painter, who was invited to exhibit in London. Today (17th January 2017) is her solo exhibition opening in London. People love her work and it’s going to be an amazing exhibition. Darrin Zammit-Lupi, a Photojournalist, who was awarded Street Photographer of the year and also the Top Prize Overall Photographer of the Year from London The Societies of Photographers. From the awards, he also won a fancy camera and a trip to the convention in the US! I’m very proud of them to have such great achievements. These are the portraits I did for them a little while ago.  

Presentation at photography workshop in Ragusa Sicily.

Thanks so much for the Associazione fotografi Iblei for inviting me as a special guest photographer in the workshop in Ragusa. I was happy to have the opportunity to share my work with fellow photographers.   I talked about my fine art self-portrait project “Her” and receive many good responses. I talked about how I made the photographs and the stories behind them. They are very generous with applause, I was very encouraged and feeling grateful that people appreciate my work and the concept behind them. I’ve also shown some of my recent fine art works which I haven’t shown to public before. I had an interpreter Ric for the translation from English to Italian. He had done a great job. The workshop organizer Enzo.  I talked about my exhibition project last year Women in Malta, showing the behind the scene video. The photographers came from allover Italy.

Pre-wedding Photo Shoot

  Why have pre-wedding photo shoot? It an opportunity to get to know your photographer you booked before the wedding, also a good practice for posing and get used to the camera. It’s a good excuse to add some fun memory before get married, so why not? 🙂 I love the couple poses to look natural and look like they are not posing. The natural interaction of two people in love, just add the romantic feeling into the images. We had a pre-wedding shoot last week with Trudy and Dennis, our pre-wedding photo shoot winners in August. The photos from the shoot will be coming out soon. Because it went so well so we decide to have another pre-wedding photo shoot competition. Instead of using Facebook App, I spent some time on putting the competition on my website . It turned out it was quite complicated to set up and I had to try out different WordPress plugins to get it right. I try to make it simple so it will be very easy for people who want to join. Our contest ends at the end of October. If you are engaged to be married, come to join the contest, you […]

It was a fabulous event, all the girls dressed up in all kind of design of gorgeous evening gowns. It’s like going to a formal party, everyone looked so elegant. One of the interesting thing I saw in the back stage, there were sections of workshop going on, some for the hair styling, some for the makeup. The makeup section lead by the makeup artist Natasha Polidano was like a petrol station, anyone come to fill up their “power” by being applied the makeup touch up, to make them feel more confident go back to the crowd and the stage.
