What was the shoot?
The Community-led Housing Conference 2017, Congress Centre- London.
Shooting in a room packed full of like-minded and passionate people. The atmosphere within the room was really positive- especially after Alok Sharma's announcement of increased funding for community led housing. Picking up from the attendees of the conference, it seems this could really be the start of something that takes community led housing into the mainstream.

This photo doesn't win a truck load of points for originality but there is always time in a shoot to shake it up a bit. For me however, event photography is all about documenting what's in front of you in the most effective way. Going wide with the composition, I was able to get across the scale of the event including Alok Sharma (@aloksharma-rdg) speaking with the crowd watching on. Just call me the Ringo Starr of the event photography :) :) :)
Massive congratulations to The National CLT Network for organising such a successful and uplifting event. To follow their quest for a more community led approach to housing, you can follow them on twitter @community_land.
