Westminster boating base commands a stunning view across the river Thames looking towards Vauxhall. It was here on a late summers evening I photographed a really enjoyable twins 21st birthday. I love photographing parties, not just because I get to photograph amazing people having a brilliant time, but also because I get to share in the joy of the party. It's a win win situation for everyone involved. Parties are so many things to so many people but what they have unquestionably at their core is a celebration of life and of being alive. When I photograph a party it is this essence I capture in my photographs so that memory of feeling so alive is preserved for ever.
