Runners Up at the Abbey Road Studios Music Photography Awards 2022

Blog by Jada Parrish | Press | 05/17/22


We just got back from a whirlwind 72 hours in London where we attended the Abbey Road Studios Music Photography Awards. A photo we took of Isabella VanKesteren for our 100 Set Project was nominated for the Undiscovered Photographer Award, so we were invited to attend the awards ceremony at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.

The dress code on the invitation said "Flash", which is a British term, so we weren't totally sure what that meant, but we took it to mean stylish. We adventured to thrift shops and put together looks for ourselves.

When our uber dropped us off at the studios, the first thing we saw was our photo plastered across the front wall of Abbey Road Studios. Seriously, how cool is that?!

And there was a red carpet! So yes, of course we walked the red carpet.

The awards ceremony took place in studio 1 (they recorded the film score for all of the Harry Potter movies in this room. NBD). All of the nominated photographs were printed and displayed throughout the room. The room was lit and there was a giant bar in the middle of the room serving Hennessy cocktails. We grabbed some cocktails, viewed all of the photographs, and mingled with other guests from all over the world.

One of the photographers who has inspired us the most is Rankin. He took to the stage to kick off the awards. Afterwards we got to chat with him for a bit too! Although we didn't win the award, being in such an iconic space surrounded by so many talented creatives felt like an award of its own.

After the awards ended, studio 2 opened up (this is where the Beatles recorded!). Five musical acts took the stage and put on a private concert. David and I had the best time enjoying the live music and meeting new people. We are so full from this experience and amazed that our photos are providing us opportunities to travel the world.

 

Cheers to a wonderful 72 hours in London!
