Fanny Shorter - bursary shoot

First week back behind the camera after an awesome festive holiday and it was straight to HOME at Earls Court to catch up with Katie from Confessions of a Design Geek and many others.

For the second year running I have supported the HOME/coadg bursary by offering the winner a free photoshoot. Last year it was Jessica Hogarth and I've since worked with her again on several occasions - going from strength to strength!

This year Fanny Shorter emerged the winner, beating off very strong competition from the other shortlisted designers Taz Pollard, Keith Varney, Nancy Straughan and Annabel Perrin.

Here's a sample of our shoot...

Big respect to the partners and mentors who made the bursary possible: Home London, the Southbank Centre Shop, wallunica, R&A Collaborations, Seen PR, Mini Moderns, HAM, Decorum, October Communications, The Design Trust, Press Loft and Jessica Hogarth. Read more features about the bursary at:
