Guest Blog Post by Marion Wotton Photography; My First Crafty Fox Market

This week we asked the talented freelance photographer, Marion Wotton, to blog about her first experience at the Crafty Fox Market in Brixton. 



Before Brixton, I was a Crafty Fox virgin.

I was intrigued when Raquel mentioned that The Lost Lanes was going to be curating the Autumn Crafty Fox Markets this year in Brixton. The idea of a ‘The Lost Lanes - live’ sort of market experience really appealed to me - I imagined a venue oozing with character, full of independent creators displaying their vibrant, handcrafted and intriguing wears. What’s not to love about that?!

So I was thrilled when Raquel asked me to capture some of the action of the Crafty Fox Autumn Markets for The Lost Lanes. As a product photographer, this sort of event is my idea of street photography (some of you who were at The Dogstar in Brixton on Sunday may have noticed me hiding behind my camera in various spots around the market trying to be as inconspicuous as possible while capturing the scene).


I was anything but disappointed. Passionate designers, gorgeous colours and innovative creations - amazing masks, accessories, artworks, jewellery, textiles, stationary, succulents, screen-printing, necklace making workshops and lots of happy browsers and customers … I had a brilliant time capturing it all.


The third of the Crafty Fox Autumn Markets is this weekend in Peckham (Oct 10 - 11) and I’m looking forward to shooting some more of the action there. And perhaps emerging from behind my camera to make an ethical poodle tote at the Poodle Parlour Workshop.
