The shining light of my friend and hero Helen McCrory will live on forever in the work we do. We will be strong and try with all our might to smile today, but we will smile as that is what Helen McCrory did, she smiled, she gave, she enjoyed life to the full.

Helen McCrory a force of nature, passionate, dedicated to the arts and culture.  Not only was she one of the world’s most brilliant actors, mesmerising on screen – off screen she was fearless, she was funny, she was selfless, she was a philanthropist and gave so much to so many.

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 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.

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:
