Documentary event photography for Contact the Elderly

I was particularly delighted when Contact The Elderly asked me to provide some promotional event photography for the charity to use in their communications. I am also a volunteer driver for the charity, and have seen first hand what fantastic work they do in tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst elderly people in communities all across the UK. So it was a pleasure to combine my volunteer work with some event photography as well!

I sought to capture the sociable atmosphere and the friendships on Contact’s monthly outings, which give lonely elderly people who live alone the chance to enjoy tea and food together at different host’s houses once a month. Plus, during our subsequent outings, our guests have now enjoyed looking through their own photographs from previous events – I have been taking requests for prints!

I’m a documentary wedding photographer and event photographer covering Surrey, Sussex, London and the South East. I love to express the true atmosphere of your day in an unobtrusive manner, allowing you and your guests to be themselves and enjoy the day.
