Kate at 50mm

I have the pleasure of assisting my local primary school out with their IT, and was lucky enough to be requested to take photos of their childrens' graduation event.

Most photos are for internal use and have been distributed in-house to the relevant heads of school, but I am happy to share this photo of one of the invited governors Kate - taken at 50mm on my Nikon prime lens. 

Let me know what you think of this shot. Others may pop up on both @r_ikoroha_photography and/or @iamroyikoroha (both Instagram handles)

Cheers for touching base!

London Fashion Week Festival 2018

For roughly the last five years, I have always had a strong desire to be at anything in relation to London Fashion Week (be it the five-day event or the weekend event). Typically, I have missed the events primarily due to not realising in time that they are happening. By the time I have realised, the event is either in process, or has fully passed.

This past Saturday (24.02.18); I attended London Fashion Week Festival 2018 alongside my mother who has always been one of my biggest and truest supporters when it comes to my own fashion brand – my ‘Labels Are Limitations’ brand – which I began in 2014 and prototyped two years prior to that! Furthermore, it has been a dream of hers to attend a fashion show as she never had prior to yesterday!

We had the pleasure of attending Fashion Designer Markus Lupfer's fifteen-minute talk, before heading straight to the front row of Nicola Formichetti’s Nicopanda fashion show where he showcased some of his latest designs. Please find below some of my favourite looks from his collection.

Post-runway show - I managed to check out several of the designers who had their clothing on show; with notable collections including Minki and Daniela Fargion. I bumped into Millie Mackintosh too (no selfie unfortunately). I took some photos of these favoured collections with my iPhone, so no doubt they may rock up on my Insta (@iamroyikoroha) at some point!

LFWF 2018 was an amazing event and I am delighted to AT LAST have attended after all these years. It was almost an entirely different world at this event, but one which I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing!

Thank you for reading! I am now going to fade out like this photo [below] and rest for the night zzz...

R.I.D Turns 4!

I was in the shower today and it suddenly caught be full in the face that Roy Ikoroha Design is 4 today! 4!!!!!!!

Where has the time gone guys?????!!!!!

It feels like yesterday I was deliberating over processing the registering of R.I.D and the direction I was going to take the business in! Fast-forward to today and I can happily say I have covered numerous graphical design and photographic projects - all challenging me in their own unique way.

Four years in the game - plus several years prior to this learning my craft - and I can confidently say I have learnt so much, whilst continuing to challenge myself as a creative on a daily basis! 

 Do we call this a self-portrait hmmm?? Myself shot at home, at 35mm, with a Nikon DSLR.  North London

Taken By Chelsea

For many years now I have wanted to get some shots of both Chelsea Bridge and Albert Bridge at night!

Chelsea Bridge, Chelsea, London

As you may or may not know, I have been a huge fan of scripted-reality tv series Made In Chelsea since its inception in 2011 and both the Chelsea and Albert Bridges feature heavily. As a photographer and fairly big Chelsea enthusiast; I visited here last in February 2014 for some Chelsea Embankment photography. You can see this by clicking here.

I was after a great night capture and I think I have several now as you can see below.
