It’s always lovely to be referred by past clients. I figure this means that they think we did an awesome job! That’s how I came to photograph Chris Chan. Chris tells me that he had really good feedback from colleague and friend Bernd Schiffer. He also thought that our style really made our clients look warm and friendly, which was the impression he wanted to project of himself.
Chris is an Enterprise Lean & Agile Coach, consultant and trainer who focuses on facilitating organisational change and the transformation to a more agile workplace.
Chris is very passionate about what he does. His naturally curious personality means he is constantly learning and striving to get better at things. He lives by the moto “you can never stop learning” and is spurred on by the excitement of learning something new no matter how small it may be. While striving to find better ways of doing things himself, he discovered an appetite for helping others get better at working. He loves mentoring and coaching people in agile ways of working, and gets a lot of satisfaction from seeing people succeed. He tells me that his fresh, outside perspective and pragmatic attitude are things clients really value.
It’s no secret that I am a massive fan of travel, so I was thrilled to recently work with Jill Blunsom of Gourmet South America and learn more about what she does. Jill creates personalised private travel arrangements to South America, organising everything from flights, hotels and touring, to winery stays and fine dining experiences to complement the journey. With a 12 year career in the South Amercian travel industry she really knows her stuff. She is passionate about all things South America and tells me that there are so many places that people don’t know about, so she’s made it her mission to design itineraries based on her own experience travelling in the region, which are tailored to each individual. Some of her travel highlights have taken her well away from the tourist crowds; to Estancias with its jaw dropping views, to world class wine lodges, jungle retreats, and fine dining experiences to rival the world’s best.
Jill was looking online for a professional photographer who could create a more relaxed professional profile and our folio appealed. Jill had some really lovely things to say about her experience working with us: “I found Lizzy very professional and able to create an environment in which I could relax, enjoy the shoot and even have a bit of a laugh. The end result was some great shots which I am now using on all of my professional pages, i have had many compliments on them. Thank you Lizzy!”
Aww, thanks Jill!

To begin with is a few photos taken around Cordoba, Spain. Cordoba is a fascinating medieval town with a strong Islamic influence.
As a lover of coffee I can’t think of anything more appealing then taking a moment to enjoy a brew!
The couple obviously enjoyed being surrounded by their diverse group of friends and family, reflecting their broad range of interests. Because of Mike’s Ukrainian background, both he and Steph have been studying Ukrainian, and Mike even tested out his new language skills during his speech. Later on, Mike and his groomsmen surprised the guests with a not-so-traditional (and quite entertaining) take on a Ukrainian dance.
“The whole day was absolutely perfect,” Steph said afterward. “It was incredible for each of us to marry our best friend in such a beautiful place, surrounded by all our amazing family and friends.”
Steph also sweetly mentioned, “It was so great having Lizzy as our photographer. We had lots of fun and laughs—she felt like a friend rather than our photographer. Lizzy was very discreet during the ceremony and reception, which allowed us to enjoy the moment with our friends and family.”
