Monthly Roundup: October 2022

Happy Halloween, everyone!

This month flew so fast, and it’s been such a busy few weeks, but it has been an exciting few weeks publishing content on here, and I’ve got tons more photoshoots on the way which I’m so excited for all of you to see!

I was so excited to finally share with you the photoshoot I produced last Summer with Atlanta Raine, as I wanted to make sure to raise awareness for mental health with the photoshoot by amplifying the emotions that she and all of us feel and express.

The cyclone impacted Croydon and the rest of the South East of London on the 23rd of October, and so much happened within that time.

During the last two weeks of October, I headed back to the gym for the first time in three months, and I forgot to realise how much I missed working out until I hit the gym, and it felt good to challenge myself much more this time as opposed to my last visit to the gym a few months ago.

I also attended an event during the time I was off work that I produced photos for, and it was really nice to get out and about and enjoy the free time.

Without further ado, I shall quickly summarise the content published throughout October!

1.10.2022 – Autumn officially kicked off, and so did the Halloween season! As Halloween is always known as Spooky Season, it’s no surprise that a lot of the film channels and streaming services crank up the Halloween season a gear year after year; with trick-or-treaters going around knocking on everyone’s doors on Halloween Night, it makes you realise how fast the year has flown.

9.10.2022 – It’s been a long time since I visited Merton as I travel there with my family to Charlie’s Rockshop when the time is right; it was such a nice feeling to travel there after a few years away.

16.10.2022 – As nightfall began, multiple vehicles drove into the sunset, with the golden hour offering the best thing; light trails!

26.10.2022 – The next subject I photographed for this series was Atlanta Raine.

28.10.2022 – Sunday’s cyclone was unbelievable; you had to see it to believe it!

31.10.2022 – After the cyclone on the 23rd of October, I captured quite a few photos of the raindrops on the window, and I wanted the photo collection “Don’t Steal Nature’s Thunder!” to be completely unedited so that they would capture the true essence of nature’s anger.

What a busy month it has been!

It’s given me such a buzz being able to prepare content for the website over the last few weeks, but the time has flown remarkably faster than I thought, and it’ll be the end of the year before we know it!

Throughout November, I’ll be looking to publish more content as I prepare the next photoshoot for release, but will be on the go over the coming weeks producing some more content after returning to work.

How was October for you? I would love to hear from you, and if you missed anything I published throughout October, don’t worry, as all of the content I’ve published for this month can be found below.

I’ll see you all in November!
