The PVC gallery, pop up shop.
So as part of my arts award I have to organise an event. So I decided to plan and run a pop up shop in Brighton for the weekend. The process of hiring the space was quite stressful and the cost wasn’t friendly! As a result I asked a few arty friends of mine if they were interested in coming in on the idea with me!
Overall it wasn’t very profitable and I don’t think it was the best way for me to showcase my work. Personally I feel that the location of the shop wasn’t the best and we didn’t really have many people coming in all together.
However I really enjoyed the process of setting it all up and creating the products for the shop. Things I sold were:
My advice to anyone thinking of selling crafts is to promote it LOADS.This is something I wish I had done more off but time was short. Online, leaflets, posters anything you can!
First ever bubba shoot!
I stupidly went to this shoot thinking it would be fairly easy, little did I know that this baby was not in the mood to be model!
My other problem along with the crying is positioning the baby so that it looks natural and he doesn’t fall off whatever we’ve placed him on! I also found it difficult to use props as it was a little baby boy, rather than a female in which things like flowers could have been used.
Having said this, it was super cute and I would love to do more children’s shoots, maybe try something different or surreal…
Busy making cards for next months pop up shop! I’ve hired 23 Brighton square for the weekend of the 6th in September to sell my work with some other great artists.
Excited by nervous 😬
Deborah and Avnish’s Indian ceremony.
Sorry I haven’t been able to blog in a while, things have been crazy. I’m excited to be able to show these photos from the Indian wedding I did back in May in Nottingham.
The couple had two weddings, one Indian and one English, which was where they officially married. It was a completely new experience for me to photograph an Indian wedding and I cant lie, it was pretty amazing. The clothes, colours and the sense of family was everywhere!
Hopefully will be uploading the English wedding photos soon!
Avnish and Deborah
I love doing shoot like these, I get to play with kids toys!
