London Design Week at Chelsea Harbour 2019

The entrance to Design Week at Chelsea Harbour.

The entrance to Design Week at Chelsea Harbour.

For six days this week London Design Week champions the brightest and best of world-class talent from 10-15 March.

With 120 exhibitors and over 600 international brands to explore, earlier this week I took myself off to the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, to see what was in store.

The photographs I took below were taken on the opening day, Sunday 10th, and again on Monday 11th when I went back to see Melissa Hemsley’s cookery demonstration at Expresso Design, featuring Bora cooking appliances, as some of you know I love food and this way I could soak up a few of my passions, photography, food and good design.

I have added some text to each photograph to keep you updated about some of the showrooms I visited, there were so many interesting ones to visit I only had time to see a handful. The abundance of design, vibrant colour, textures and expertise from the artisans and creatives was overwhelming!

I can see why this ultimate design collective is spread over a week, you need that amount of time if you want to get the best from your chosen ones, scroll down to see the ones I chose to enjoy!

You can also sign up to talks by legends from the world of photography, media and design with workshops to take part in, book signings and demonstrations to inspire, enrich and educate you.

If you have a project in mind for yourself, a friend or client it’s well worth a visit. There is also a comfortable shuttle mini-bus service to Sloane Square to take you to visit some of the design stores there including Osborn and Little.

To apply for your entry pass visit the London Design Centre website here its quick and easy!

Thanks for reading!

Photography Masterclasses with Stella Scordellis

Photography Masterclasses with Stella Scordellis

you know it makes sense…

Do you keep putting off when to find the time to learn how to use your camera or who to go to?

Now is your opportunity to enjoy a one to one or small group masterclass with me so I can share with you my expert knowledge and teach you how to use your camera so you don’t have to feel daunted by all the technical jargon and countless options on your camera.

My mantra is ‘keep it simple’ - so you can capture the moment and reflect on the images you have made.

So often nowadays the camera of choice is the camera we all have on our smart phones, it’s simple, point and shoot and you’re ready for a spot of post production at the touch of a few preset actions and you’re done! What could be easier, which is so true, but if you are looking for a few steps above this then I’m the man (or rather woman) for the job!

Whether it’s for you, a friend, a family member, a loved one, or a child over the age of 14 years I can make a difference.

I tailor each class to the specific needs of the individual - you could be a business owner who wants to be able to take great images for your social media or your products or have a holiday booked and want to learn how to get great holiday images - whoever you are and whatever you want to learn please do ask.

I have taught teenagers whose parents have felt they are under achieving at school and don’t get the praise or recognition they crave and have found through their love of photography they can excel at something, one or two of them have pursued a career in the craft and are doing very well, it’s very rewarding for me to see this happen.

Although my schedule is a busy one, I do enjoy passing on my knowledge and teaching others to enjoy something I can call my career and passion - so go on, you know it makes sense - to book a time and day call me at the studio on 01883 722282, by email as below or at the studio if you’re passing by.

Thanks

Stella

Oxted has a new business in town, we are delighted to welcome The Investment Boutique which proudly sits at number 114 Station Road East, less than a minute walk from the train station and directly opposite the Little Waitrose store and a short walk from SMS Creative Photography.

Richard Arris and Helena Bakunowicz

I have known both Richard Arris and Helena Bakunowicz for the past 8 years having photographed them professionally before.

Between them they have an abundance of expertise, specialising in a discretionary investment management service working with investible assets in excess of £1.5m, aiming to provide positive returns achieved by tailoring each portfolio to the needs of the client. The investment Boutique is a trading name of Raymond James.

The independent practice was set up in November 2017 by Helena with Richard joining her in February 2018. Their new offices were found in April this year, offering the perfect setting to conduct business, with a fast rail link to central London and 6 parking spaces on site making it convenient for all their clients to relax and arrive stress free without feeling hurried.

The duo offer a bespoke and personal service covering different parts of the market. Their clients value their diversity and rightly so, they are both very approachable and ambition individuals with plans to grow their business to incorporate a financial planner and more.

On Friday 28 September I had the pleasure of photographing their launch evening to celebrate their new venture and the extensive refurbishment of the premises previously known as The Therapy Rooms. The launch was attended by clients old and new, friends and family and Cynthia Poole; Director of Relationship Management and Business Support, from Raymond James.

Wishing Richard and Helena all the very best. The Investment Boutique business is a real asset to our town, if you would like to know more please get in touch with them on 01883 708340, to read about their investment philosophy click here.
