Blesma members from all over the country have enjoyed an opportunity to practice their photography skills in a professional setting, with qualified photographers to guide them.

Verdi Studios on the High Road in Chadwell Heath opened its doors to the charity for a two day-long workshops in their fully equipped and accessible studios for free. Members were treated to expert advice and tuition from studio manager Kirsty Verdi, the third generation of the family to run the business.

Kirsty Verdi explains it was a real honour and privilege to host the two groups of Blesma Members in the studio. She says: ‘To see how they adapted to get in the right position to take the shots was inspirational. We are delighted that everyone got something out of the workshops and we look forward to working with Blesma in the future.’
