Portugal – Albuferia // Travel Video

Like everyone else, we needed a break from the busy work life. So we packed our bags and flew out to Portugal – Albufereia. Enjoyed a great week away with the sunshine around the clock. Everywhere we visited we found people to be very polite and helpful.

We took a boat ride for the day and had BBQ at the beach also we went around all the famous caves. We were told by the excursion establishment that there’s an 80% chance we could see some dolphins on the day but they couldn’t 100% guarantee us?! That moment when you look at each other and say… OKAY?!. So poor Samad (friend) didn’t see any dolphins on the day! 😦

I used my iPhone 7 Plus throughout the entire holiday and shot the whole trip at 60fps 1080p and then slowed it down in Premier Pro. Ohh almost forgot I use the GoPro hero for the water scenes anyway I hope you like the video 🙂 have a great day…

France – Dinard & Quiberon // Travel Video

Good morning,

I have put together a video from my trip to France, we manage to visit few different cities around Rennes. We visited Dinard, then Dinan on the same day also Quiberon later that week.

In modern history, Dinard was first settled by Saint-Malo’s shipping merchants who built some of the town’s magnificent houses, very few of which survive. In the late 19th century American and British aristocrats made Dinard popular as a fashionable summer resort, and they built stunning villas on the cliff tops and exclusive hotels by the sea front.

Dinan, on the other hand, was like a movie set from the Medieval era. The medieval town on the hilltop has many fine old buildings, some of which date from the 13th century. The town retains a large section of the city walls, part of which can be walked round. But unfortunately we arrived in the medieval town later during the evening and I wasn’t able to capture any footage on the iPhone 7+ as it got really dark – what a #LetDown but it’s still a great phone!

Quiberon is situated in the southern part of the Quiberon peninsula, the northern part being the commune of Saint-Pierre-Quiberon. It is primarily known as a seaside resort for French tourists during summer, and for its history of sardine production. But obviously, we didn’t go fishing.

Hope you all like the video and have a great day.

Greece – Crete // Travel Video

Hello people,

Manage to finally finish the Crete video from last year! Yes, I know were in 2017. But life gets so busy in London.

I and my friends visited Greece last October for my birthday. We spent a week there, the weather wasn’t too bad, well I mean it didn’t stop us from jumping into the swimming pool.

We hired some quad bikes for the duration of our stay so we had the flexibility of hopping on and going sightseeing and exploring the area. Must say the food was pretty decent but most of the restaurant was trying to replicate English dishes, which makes sense as Greece gets a lot of tourists every year but would have loved to see some traditional dishes.

Overall it was a brilliant stay, the people were friendly and helpful. Will definitely like to revisit one day but explore a different part of Greece.  Enjoy the video.

Life in London: Comic Con 2015 [One of Three]

Hey everyone, I finally went to a Comic Con event and you know what I loved every single moment… I have decided that I will be attending comic con every year now! IT FELT LIKE BEING AT HOME!!!

Thank you to my dear friend Noemi for the ticket, if Mel (Her partner) didn’t opt out I’d be sitting home in front of a screen editing so yes Mel thank you too.

The atmosphere was amazing and I must mention that the crowed were so friendly and polite. It was amazing to see how much effort people put into their costumes some even made their own from scratch.

I leave you with some photographs and more will be uploaded soon. 1 of 3.

A TRAVELLER’S LIFE: Ancient Egypt

Hello everyone!

Its been a long time since I’ve posted anything on here. I’m sure you can all understand that life in London usually keeps you on your toes, especially when one tries to juggle and maintain multiple jobs whilst trying to have some sort of a work life balance. But as my friend keeps reminding me, it is important to enjoy life whilst trying to make it to the top.

So I did just that. As well as the occasional weekend trips to a new destination in the UK, I recently visited Egypt. I didn’t hold back in taking plenty of photographs, which I would like to share now with you all.

This new adventure was to the world renowned Egyptian resort, Sharm El Sheikh. I went there for a week and managed to squeeze in a day trip to Cairo, which was inevitable. I have to say I really enjoyed my time out there capturing the culture, life and sceneries. Sharm is a beautiful tourist resort, which meant that I would have to get out of the resort to get true reflection of the Egyptian way of life. So the short visit to Cairo really made me feel humble as I engaged with the raw surroundings of the Capital.

I hope you all appreciate this great country through my eyes.

Please don’t forget to like, share and comment.

I wish you a great day and a great adventure of your own.

Life In London: The Year of The Goat

Hello and good morning all…

This was my first visit to an event such as the Chinese New Year celebrations, one of the largest events outside Asia. So every year, hundreds of thousands of people from many different backgrounds gather up in the West End to wish each other “Xin Nian Kuai Le” (Happy New Year in Mandarin) or “San Nin Faai Lok” (in Cantonese).

The Chinese New Year 2015 celebrations took place in central London, Trafalgar Square, Chinatown and Shaftesbury Avenue.  As I walked through the busy street of Chinatown I came across performances from local artists and there were traditional food and craft stalls in various locations. The atmosphere was incredible; it was colorful throughout the streets with all the smells of Chinese food surrounding me, which certainly made me want to eat as I’m a food junkie too…

So, what is Chinese New Year? It’s huge festival among Chinese communities in London and across the world. Based on the lunar and solar calendars, the actual date of Chinese New Year varies, but always falls between late January and mid-February. Each year in the Chinese calendar is represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. 2015 is the year of the Goat.

I used my Canon 5D mark iii with a 1.4, 50mm lens as I didn’t want to walk around with a larger lens and heavy gear making it harder to navigating though crowds. Recently my  old friend Samad from my home town moved to London, so I set him up with a 550D, standard kit lens.  He seemed to have fun clicking away and interacting with people during the event. I guess that’s the best thing about any photography; we get to meet a lot of interesting people with interesting stories.

I leave you with these photographs and hope that you enjoy what you see…

 

Brand new official ZAZA Photography website!

ZAZA Photography_-7
Hello good morning all, it’s been a while since I’ve posted any thing on here! The truth is I have simply been very busy but here is my brand new website! It’s the 3rd one in under 3 years… I guess I was not happy with the previous ones! So I decided to reboot the site with the help of my dear friend Helen Duong (she’s just awesome).

I wanted a fresh clean simple look for the site as I like simplicity but I’m surprised it took me 2 sites to get to this stage 😅. There’s no slide show on the front home page as I wanted clients to come on the site see all the work straight away also tried to make the navigation easier. I stuck to my original colour scheme as I love to keep things consistent.

So I hope if you view the site, you like what you see and as always thank you all for the support and love. Www.zazaphotography.com

Thank you all for the support! #ZAZAPHOTOGRAPHY #ABOUTLIAKOTH

So few weeks back I had the pleasure of capturing Sven and Nikki. The wedding pre-shoot took place around Tower Bridge and Riverside, the couple were absolutely amazing and natural with their poses and not to forget it was a fun shoot! I didn’t have to tell them to do anything such as posse like this or do that! They were doing their own posses, which made my job lot easier!

Here are some photographs and will be uploading the wedding shots very soon! Have a fantastic day all…🍀☺️

Life In London – Historical Building Puts On A Display Remembering World War One

Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history, the First World War and the fighting continuing until the 11th of November 1918, Armistice Day. The Royal British Legion was founded by veterans of the First World War who adopted the poppy as their symbol of Remembrance and hope.

Marking one hundred years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement in the First World War. Ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper have displayed this astonishing view in the heart of the city.

Life In London – Up At The Shard

Here are some photographs taken up at The Shard. The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe with 72 floors and an amazing view of the London. My favorite is the sunset as you can see the lovely rich oranges reflecting of all the buildings. Some interesting facts about The Shard:

• The Shard is 309.6 metres (1,016ft) high.

• It has 11,000 glass panels.

• The area of the glass façade is 56,000 sq metres (602,779 sq ft), which equals eight football pitches.

• There are 44 lifts, including double-decker lifts.

• There are 306 flights of stairs.

• The total floor space is 11 hectares (27 acres).

• 95% of the construction materials are recycled.

• 20% of the steelwork is from recycled sources.

• The design was influenced by the irregular nature of the site.

• Each facet forms a shard, a plane of glass gently inclined inwards, rising towards the top.

• The corners of the development are open and the shards do not touch, allowing the building to “breathe”.

• There are 72 habitable floors.

• A further 15 levels will make up the “spire”. Six have the potential to be used, while another nine are exposed to the elements.

• It is the 59th tallest building in the world.
