Over two separate days, the team at Verdi Studios donated their time and studio to Blesma, The Limbless Veterans charity, who also have their office in Chadwell Heath. Photography is a popular hobby for a number of amputee and spinal cord injured military veterans and on learning this Parm & Kirsty were quick to offer the studio days free of charge to the charity. Verdi Studios donated more than just the fully equipped and accessible studio, which they closed to the public over the two days.
They donated their time, expertise and arranged lunch and models – all at no cost to the charity.Those of us that attended were privileged to have such an opportunity to experience this level of photography and to have such expert tuition was brilliant; the results were amazing. Verdi studios and all those that gave their time have made a huge impact on the limbless veterans that travelled from as far away as Somerset and Yorkshire.
The following images are just a few examples of the great work achieved by Blesma Members with Verdi Studios expert guidance using different lighting techniques.
Blesma Member Mick Willams said, “the help and encouragement that Parm and Kirsty at Verdi Studios gave over both my visits to their studios have allowed me to move forward with my photography. The use of superb equipment and expert advise was out of this world, I came away on both days feeling I had gained in many ways.”
Thanks to Brian and the Verdi family for arranging this fantastic activity.
