I have a special offer this week

A street photo portfolio shoot – spend the day in using Brick Lane as a backdrop for portfolio photos or simply for the fun of it.

Spice up your portfolio, just for fun or simply because you want some pictures that look different from everyone else? You have a dramatic personality why not bring it out with a street shoot in London’s charismatic Brick Lane.

A special cost of £150 and you will receive 5 photos with the amazing backdrop of Brick Lane in the background.

Use your burlesque costume or even your best ‘Ascot’ clothes. Spend half a day with the Burly Photographer to take some awesome street photos which will spice up your portfolio.

Tricky Formal Points

The photoshoot will take around 3 hours

You will be responsible for your own clothes, make-up and hair

It will be a relaxed lifestyle and dramatic shoot, rather than a usual boring studio shoot. It will be relaxed and personal reflecting your amazing personality

Community Garden in the City

When I was a politician I was responsible for open spaces, allotments and community gardens in Reading where I live.

The gardens and allotments were always very serious things and redolent of hard work and graft. No fun at all seemed to be allowed. Contrast this with the  Nomadic Community Garden near Brick Lane. It is a wild place full of cucumbers and opera houses, the smell of spliffs glowing in the sunshine and mad artworks.

With its composting toilets it has some of the same smells as the Calais Jungle camp, which I shot last year, but none of the desperation.

So if you are in Brick Lane break out of its plastic pretend East End, ignore the siren calls of hipster Shoreditch and relax in the bliss that is the Nomadic Community Garden.

If you have got this far with the set. This last picture is my favourite, not because it is the best shot but the juxtapositioning of the sign and the railway infrastructure behind says something about the place.
