  • Marrakech, Morocco, June 2014

    A prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) or “cactus apple” vendor in the Old Medina. These cactus fruits are sold on little wooden carts on many streets through the souks of Marrakech and all through Morocco for only a couple of dirhams. The vendor will peel away the skin for you to eat there and then if you would like. It is heavily seeded and could be eaten raw, boiled, grilled or made into a juice.

  • Marrakech, Morocco, June 2014

    The streets of Marrakech are full of cars, taxis, motorbikes, bicycles, horse carts and donkey carts making it very hectic and absolute chaos. Many people have an understanding of the traffic and get by but accidents are definitely on the rise due to many factors. Here is an interesting article I came across that discusses the increase of accidents in Morocco: http://riadzany.blogspot.co.uk/2009/05/traffic-accidents-in-morocco-on-rise.html

  • Children of Marrakech, Morocco, June 2014

    The children of Morocco are required to be in school from ages 7 to 15, but many children are not able to attend school as many of them have to work with their parents. Many girls don’t ever receive an education. Although many of these children are in very difficult positions they always seemed to have big smiles on their faces.

  • Street Cats of Marrakech, Morocco, June 2014

    Cats are absolutely everywhere - on every street and every corner there will be a cat looking for some food or lounging in the shade. They are very integrated with daily life, yet, at the same time somehow avoid the busy and chaotic happenings around them.

  • Para Mi 

    This is my first ever product shoot which is of ‘Para Mi’, a natural shaving oil. Before shooting this, I looked into photographing reflective surfaces. I found that a lot of the time a reflective surfaced bottle would be photographed so that there would be one line of soft light shaping the bottle or two lines of more hard light parallel to one another also shaping the bottle. I found these websites very useful: http://www.modahaus.com/wine-bottle-photography-with-1-light/ and http://learnmyshot.com/how-to-photograph-shiny-reflective-objects-silver-chrome-metal/ 

    I set up the lighting so there were lights coming from beneath, above and either side due to the reflective surface. I enjoyed learning about the lighting and the process of getting the shot for this product. I am pleased with the outcome.
