The Beautiful colours of Fashion
Absolutely adored this group of our youth today, they were so colourful and not shy at all, as i approached them for some ideas i had for black history month they were all smiles - took direction very well and we had a lot of fun, can’t wait for me to send their pictures to them. I think you will agree a little polite conversation goes an awful long way rather than being a discrete photographer - get to know who your photographing. so much fun #LFW #LFW2018 #positivefashion
All Smiles for Miss Shy

Anila is always after a challenge and this time she was presented with an opportunity to photograph something she never thought of. Food and cocktails.
Having recently won a place at an Olympus cocktail photoshoot with Marcus - their ambassador there were lots of tips and tricks to encourage a good photograph. Light played a part and there was also a lot of laughter.
If you have a new menu you would like picture of please get in touch and let Anila take those photographs for your bespoke or online menu, or a printable version, you will see the images here are all Anila’s work staging lighting all included in her creativity. She tells me she now looks at food in a new light. This is something she would like to pursue.
Rhubarb without the custard
Well ive never enjoyed photographing Rhubarb before, nature in its finest, the leaves the red blood veins and the details, absolutely fun to shoot
As this was an Olympus photoshoot it was only fair to combine the cocktails made with the lenses provided. I hope you agree this ariel shot of the lenses and drinks works a treat and gives a new dimension.
When lighting is poor get creative
when you want to eat what you shoot you know it will be a great photo - take photos which make the food good enough to eat
change your view point not your subject and dim the lights
When food is colourful it can make it so much more interesting
cheese boards crackers vegetables and or fruit what ever you photograph add angles and colour
Recently I received some enquiries for some pet photography. Hadn’t even thought about why anyone would want photos of their pets, then I realised they are family too. It was great fun and the cats are very photogenic.
Ive added some other species - some owls and eagles whom had the pleasure to photograph at the weekend too. Was absolutely amazing.
Have some pets? want some photographs, enquire within nothing is impossible and im sure we can all have some fun with them too, as much as they are part of your life, they are still memories to be captured.
what a stunning sat very friendly and very hyperactive
Ryan contacted me for a James Dean type photoshoot so this is what we tried this morning. He’s very happy with the images as am I.
Male models are few and far between so was great to collaborate with him to achieve these images.
Portraits or just headshot, whatever your need it can be accommodated.

Portfolio updates and images for websites are often required. Anila can assist with your photography needs.
Browse through the gallery you will see something photographically achievable and what is hidden can be accommodated to your needs.
Most people are not happy in front of the camera - Anila can put you at ease making it a truly fun session.
Anila has a laid back approach and is not pretentious, She adores showing clients images during a shoot just to give the client more confidence and put their minds at ease that the images are what they are after and they are happy with the content. This will reflect in the rest of the session and the fun can continue..
Anything you are not sure of ask.
The images win this gallery were a bespoke package for my returning client, she had an idea what type of images she wanted and whether headshots or full length, i picked a decent venue/area, client had an idea of outfits and hey presto. I tried to make it a fun shoot and showed my client images along the way to ensure they were happy. Fortunately for me Jess was very happy and the images are on her website/instagram.

Elle is a vintage model as you can see, these are from a recent event with Olympus UK - blog will be updated shortly. Just some snapshots of her shoot , think she pulled if off superbly and ended up having lots of fabulous images for her portfolio
Always a pleasure to see people again. this was Jessicas 2nd shoot with me.
She was very specific about her request and what she wanted out of the shoot, the outfits and the locations were all discussed prior to the shoot.
I picked the best venue i could think of, the part of London which is so versatile and simply stunning with its architecture and area in general. The shoot was March 2018
Im pleased to say these images were for her new website which is now up and running. Go give her a follow let us know what you think.
I wish her every success and look forward to what the future hold
Are you an dancer or ballet artist who would like their portfolio updated. Would you like Anila to capture your movement in its unique and exquisite form? She would love to work with you.

Body Scapes/Low Light
Challenges are few and far between but something Anila always attempts - heres some low light photography and some silhouettes shot this past weekend
Super excited to announce this image received august competitions Highly Commended Avant Garde Image 2018, with the Society of Photographers. Not gold or silver award yet but im certainly working at it. Its been a challenging month of competitions and im very happy where i am.
Melissa 2nd Place
I always strive to do what i can, and lucky for me this image came 2nd place in a recent Photography competition with Woodford and Wanstead Photographic Society.
So proud as im always undecided what to submit and thought the judges may be critical of this image.
Super happy it will be along side other images on display at the stations, during our summer fete and various other locations exhibited.
Happy our model Melissa also excited it came 2nd place. Love sharing my work with my models i work with.
A little creative editing with colour can change a whole image.
Anila's photography started with structures and her admiration for architecture, light, shadows, and angles. She adores buildings, the manner i, which it catches the light and so forth.
This gallery is an ongoing work in progress and more images will be added to give you an idea of her very keen eye and her obsession with structure and perception. She never looks at anything head on, there is an angle in everything.
Have something you wish to commission her on, enquire within,
Anila hadn't been to this museum in years. In fact her last visit was when she was at school some 20 years ago.
To her admiration she states this is one of the many free and absolutely architecturally stunning masterpieces she has been in.
There are so many angles from which to get the best photo.
The only problem with instagram is the imitation rate is vast.
Yet each time she visits she finds a new angle. One she adores and always challenges herself to find that batter vantage point not see in a while.
This is one of many.
The Reichstag Berlin
such an amazing structure no words needed
Anila has just got back from Copenhagen, where she was on the hunt for some amazing architecture.
Her last trip was some 6 years ago and she states she was impressed with what new structures she found in Copehagen.
As a fan of architecture, she states the innovative designs, qwerty builds, materials used and contrasts impressed her greatly.
There are more images on her instagram on both @sparkle71h and @akhussainphotography. Have a look what she found
One New Change
fabulous glass and steel in perfect harmony at one new change. One of my most architecturally friendly places in London. Whichever angle you look it looks so different
When you visit a city Anila often says why does no body look up?
The most stunning details and views are see if people actually look up.
Needless to say she does it all the time and gets the best images, especially the ones she adores.
She now has a permanent neck ache, but says "for the view its all worth it"
So many opportunities have arisen to photograph events be it as part of @igerslondon team who always send the best invitations. Luckily opportunities are never short.
These new images are from a gig at Cargo in Shoreditch, where we were meant to photograph an event. It didn't go to plan due to a delays things going wrong on the day however the team and our enthusiasm made it a fun event nonwtheless.
Have an event coming up? Do you need a photographer to capture it? Get in touch rates are very reasonable.
Always fun to listen to great music and capture the event the atmosphere and the crowd.
Whilst at an event and snapping the hen Party all in aid of capturing those priceless moments and memories forever.
When your engagement pictures centre stage and displayed for the big day… the wedding
capturing those special moments between the brother and a sister on the engagement day is what I adore about photography
how delicate is this cake loved all the details
Good to capture candid photos at an event and the bride Aqsa couldn’t have looked more pretty
capture the details to remember the day
Getting group shots can be mundane and boring so go with the flow and create some energy and make them jump
The fine line
sometimes its nice to capture partial shots, there plenty of full shots but to to give you a tases heres a few
