Start snapping! There’s nothing more valuable to learning from mistakes and critiquing your own work. This has helped immensely at not only building my visual style. Assist - I have assisted some brilliant photographers over the years such as Jake Curtis, who shoots for Cereal and Elle Decoration. The knowledge I’ve gained from him has been invaluable! I would especially recommend this for someone who is looking to enhance their technical abilities - be curious and ask lots of questions whilst on set! Equipment - whilst you don’t need to have expensive equipment to be a good photographer, I think investing in good lenses is key. They provide you with so much creative freedom - both in camera and in post.
Adam McVoy of Holy Water tells us his tipple tips for getting your party started ….
1.) What was your inspiration to start the wonderful Holy Water?
Seeing Caterer’s seriously f**k up the drinks while still producing pieces of art for the food and wondering why they were doing the drinks in the 1st place so I took it upon myself to change the rules and 10 years later I’m proud to have done and still doing it.
2.) What is your top tipple for getting the party started?
Everybody is different, thank goodness. I personally love a NAPA Chardonnay. As a start to an event something long and not too punchy. See below recipe which also works with vodka.
3.) Do you have a fail safe recipe for a cocktail which is easy to batch up for someone hosting a cocktail party?
