JHMT 1st Anniversary Dinner + Jukebox Launch
Posted: Tue, 14 Jul 2015
I'm an aspiring photographer who, with the help of the Inspire Awards, just bought my first camera! The day after it was delivered, on the 24th of June, the 2015 Inspire Awards Dinner was held; for which I was asked to be the photographer. I was treated to free food and drinks while there, which is always a bonus. I also got to take photos of Rugby legends Martin Johnson and Martin Corry as they gave Q&As, as well as other Inspire Award recipients who were there on the night.
Shortly after this first event, I received contact from someone who wanted photos of a new Leicester-based club called Jukebox. It was the club's launch night on the 4th of July and they had Bizzi Dixon (from TV series The Voice) doing a set for them. This was a great opportunity for me to try night life photography, which I had never done before, as well as being my first paid photo shoot. As an added bonus, Bizzi has now followed me on twitter and retweeted my photos of him!
