The Project Afro 2023 team celebrated with their first photoshoot which took place at SE1 Studios, London with award winning photographer Chris Bulezuik.

Chris is an award-winning Portrait, Hair & Beauty Photographer with a distinct style that portrays a sense of narrative, character and balance.

Together with Chris, Jacqui McIntosh the project leader and Pash Mitchell a member of the Avlon Art team, worked with the team to provide a photoshoot workshop ahead of the team’s photoshoot in August.

Chris Grimley comments:Really informative day spent with Chris Bulezuik and Jackie McIntosh with assistance from Pash Mitchell. Breaking down and explaining all the steps required in order to create a fabulous shoot for the very first ever Project Afro! We are all super inspired and brimming with ideas now and very much looking forward to see what we can create together!”

Scott Cooper comments: “Chris was excellent yesterday. From the moment we all met, his passion and enthusiasm were infectious. That said, he coached, guided and taught us in such an intuitive way he definitely not only brought out the best of us individually but brought us closer as a professional team. We all left excited about our project together.”

Jacqui McIntosh Project Leader and Creative Director for the photoshoot guided the team throughout the day, alongside fellow mentors, Pash Mitchell, Aycan Kemal & Anthony Grant.
