Debbi Clark has had work featured in Vogue, Homme, and Tatler, photographed the likes of Kate Moss and Damian Lewis and set up her own charity. We speak to the woman who’s capable of it all…

When did you become interested in photography?
It was when I was studying fashion and design at St. Martin’s College when I fell in love with photography. I used to photograph landscapes, capturing patterns in trees, flowers, grass picturing shapes, shadows and formations in clouds. I became so obsessed with how fascinating it was playing with light that I wanted to learn the technical side to really bring my images to life. I then went on to LCP and studied photography and printing. My first camera was the Olympus PEN-F 35mm film camera, which I still love and use.

Helen McCrory and Damian Lewis Attend GFI/BGC Charity Day 2018

On the Trading Floor for CureEB and Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation

by Gingersnap 4Helen| helen-mccrory.com | September 11, 2018

Damian makes trading look easy as he participates in the 14th annual GFI/BGC Charity Day 2018 on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 in London for CureEB and the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation. He stated,

“Axe is gonna bring some insider info to the floor to really crank those trades.”

First up was GFI Charity Day where Damian hit the trading floor for CureEB. CureEB is passionate about medical research and clinical trials that will help lead to treatments and a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa, a severe genetic skin condition that leads to blistering and skin loss at the slightest friction. Children with the condition are often referred to as ‘Butterfly Children’ as their skin is said to be as fragile as a butterfly’s wings.

Next up was BGC Charity Day where both Damian and Helen wowed the brokers for Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation, a foundation dedicated to ensuring that every child is given a chance to connect with and express their inner artist in a time when funding for the arts are squeezed out of the mainstream curriculum.

Here are a couple of videos of today’s event:
