Mammarazzi! Female Employee Photographing Your Kids

Matt Hush and the photographers at Hush Studios are noted for their natural, relaxed and fun approach to photography and we picked their brains for some hints and tips on how to capture the perfect picture of your children whether you’re photographing them yourself or engaging the services of a professional.

as much as you may feel the urge to shoot, shoot, shoot – take a deep breath and wait for your moment, afterall, a single image speaks a thousand words, but forget about capturing that single image if your child has become bored, fed up and frustrated. Ultimately, plan your photoshoots as an experience – your kid’s participation should be as fun and rewarding as the final result.”

42

Matt tells us, “As parents, you have a unique relationship with your children and are best placed to capture some stunning images using any one of the numerous choices of affordable, high quality point and shoot cameras and phone cameras available on the market. Having said this, the closeness in your relationship may also be a recipe for tears, tantrums and complete meltdowns! The key is to keep everything relaxed, light hearted and high spirited – it is important that your child or children do not see the process of “posing” for the camera a chore or an intrusion to their day and getting the balance right as a photographing parent is essential, especially when you may have to be managing the needs and demands of multiple children, partners and other family members.

Mammarazzi: Photographing your Kids When it comes to those important life events, such as the announcement of a new child, baptisms, confirmations, birthday parties or celebrating successes, it is wonderful to capture the memories with photographs. Having images that stand the test of time and that will be cherished in years to come and by future generations of your family are absolutely priceless and are fleeting moments in life where the investment in a skilled and experienced photographer will really pay off now and in the future. We view photography of people, our specialism, in a way that places the person at the centre of the creative decisions we make to capture the best images. In doing this and working in a stress free and relaxed manner, we find that we get the best from our subjects in the most natural way and that our photography capture the true emotion of the event. We try to blend in to the scene and observe the “action” as it unfolds, rather than trying to create a false or posed scenario and the result is high quality, unique images that tell a narrative of an important moment. Of course you will always, find a willing uncle or neighbor with an expensive or impressive looking camera to take on this important position and responsibility, but for my own family, I would let the people that love and do this work professionally day in, day out throughout the year immortalize you and the people you care for and love the most.

68 Calendar of Events

keep everything

relaxed

The camera, for many people, can evoke a mix of emotions, ranging from joy to anxiety and photographs at their best, at least for me, are when the image reveals the character of the individual and photographing children means walking a line of caution and confidence. The moment we introduce an external force into a natural environment, such as a camera, the scenario is no longer natural and so taking time to create the perfect setting, winning trust and establishing the mood, alongside a pinch of patience are the all important ingredients to capturing your special image.

Greens Supermarket House of Beauty Glamorous The Model Shop TKS – The Kitchen Store

LEVEL

A success story For many Maltese families, Greens Supermarket is the supermarket they call home. With a reliable reputation built over decades, an incredible choice of fresh food items, and a friendly and helpful staff, Greens Supermarket has set the standard for quality in supermarkets. On November 1st 2016, Greens opened up their new hypermarket, located just one street away from their well-known location in Swieqi. This impressive new hypermarket features everything a modern family needs and more. But the story of how Greens developed over the years into the well-priced and well-stocked hypermarket shouldn’t be overlooked, as Joseph Sammut explains. “My father had a van that he used to sell fruit and vegetables in St. Julians and around that area,” explains Joseph. Joseph is one of three brothers who runs Greens supermarket after their father set it up. “At some point he decided to open up a small grocer, near Jessie’s Bar, a small mini-market at street level around 1985, and it was successful.” This small grocer’s success in the area meant that a lot of competition soon opened up, which led to Joseph’s father opening up the old Greens supermarket, expanding it to another floor and another three levels in the back by the 1990s. By then, the three brothers had become involved, with Joseph laughing that he has been working with his father at Greens since he was a child. “It’s a family business, the three brothers are all involved, and my father is still involved as well,” he says, pointing to his father sitting near the entrance, enjoying a coffee 46

in the newly opened café’/ bistro which its kitchen opens till 10pm. Having originally been selling fruit and veggies from the back of his van, sitting in the brand-new hypermarket is testament to the family’s dedication to quality and growth. The recently opened hypermarket has already left its mark on customers, with positive feedback from many people saying how comfortable they feel at Greens. One way this can be done is through the choice of imported products. “We mainly import direct from the UK, Italy, and Holland, and a few other countries. Maltese people like these three countries the most as they’ve had a big influence on Malta, and they prefer products from these countries more than anywhere else,” explains Joseph. “Furthermore,” continues Joseph,” now that we can buy more in bulk with the hypermarket we are giving even better prices and discounts than before.” Combined with a very attractive loyalty scheme, this means some of the lowest prices on the island. But Greens’ cost-effectiveness isn’t the only attraction, the variety of products and different sections are a great reason to visit Greens. As soon as you walk in there is a very welcoming and colourful display – the bakery where they bake their own bread and sweets, the fruit and vegetable section which they are known for, with exotic and strange fruit that you do not find anywhere else on the island. Nearby is the newly-opened cafe’/bistro/pizzeria, with a large selection of tasty food and drinks; it is also a restaurant.


“GRAND OPENING” After less than 2 years since opening their hypermarket in Swieqi-Malta they were ready for a new challenge. Last August, Greens Supermarket opened up their 2nd outlet at the heart of the beautiful island of Gozo, located at one of the main shopping malls“The Duke”. After many months of hard work, the patriarch Charles Sammut, family and lovely staff were ready for the Grand opening. A modest ceremony was held for the traditional blessing and like this a new story of success and prosperity started. Everyone was excited for the wide variety in the supermarket as they are well known to offer a large selection of freshly prepared food, organic products and popular store brands, and their new concept #BYOC Bring Your Own Container campaign at the counters to avoid the plastic usage, as well a snack bar at the entrance of the outlet is the beginning of your journey. Like this Greens supermarket started a new adventure with a fresh step, we all wish them the best and waiting for their next opening.

QA &

Model Interview with Katrina Pavia

Q. What drove you to become a model? A. As a youngster I used to hide behind my mum whenever we met other people. I started modelling and drama lessons at the age of 13 in Gozo against my will. My parents enrolled me to improve my socialization skills as I was very shy and lacked self confidence. Then my modelling mentor suggested I participate in a local beauty competition in Xewkija and I won! Eventually, I enrolled in another competition held in Malta this time – ‘Miss Maltese Beauty’ and I won yet again. By then I was really and truly hooked and simply could not stop! At 15 I went to China to take part in ‘Miss Bikini of the Universe’ where I placed 11th out of 65 international beauties. That same year, in China again, I participated in ‘Miss Model of the World’ where I won the title Miss Best Model in Evening Gown out of 85 international contestants. I also took part in ‘Passion for Fashion’ in Jo Squillo’s TV Moda which was held in Gozo. In 2007 I was the first runner up of ‘Miss Bikini of the World’ held in Turkey. I placed 2nd runner up in ‘Miss Princess of the World in Czech Republic’. In 2008, I was given the honourable Gozo Cultural Award at ‘Jum il-Għarb’. The best feather in my cap so far was in 2010 where I won the title of ‘Miss European’ in a competition held in Belgium. It was a fantastic experience and the wonder of it: the results were announced on 10.10.10 and I was the bearer of no 10! Besides being nominated for 7 years in the ‘Malta Fashion Awards’ for Best Photo Model and/or Best Female Model, I won the 2009 edition for Best Photo Model and that of 2011 for Best Female Model. Besides all of that, I was the main character in the short film “Katrina” which won 4 awards. I have compered several prestigious concerts and presentations and have taken part in numerous fashion shows modelling clothes, shoes and jewels for various fashion houses and featured on the front cover of several periodicals and in adverts both in magazines and on tv.

Q. What is your view with regards to fashion in Gozo? A. The standard of fashion in Gozo is quite high, as through media, the people are very conscious of what is going on in the world around them and they try to emulate. Q. What do you think about our seasonal magazine? A. It is an excellent showcase for the various products one can buy from all the commercial outlets to be found at the Duke. Q. The Duke will turn 10 in November – what is your opinion on its impact on Gozo? A. The Duke has become a hub of socializing and a hub of commerce. Various commercial outlets cover your every need, crowning it all with the latest addition – The Greens. It provides a living for many Gozitans and foreigners alike and has given the people in Gozo a wider choice of reasonably priced products. The Duke is the Mecca for week-end tourists, especially for the Maltese!

I just came from a competition organised by Showstars Models which was held in Marbella, Spain and I was chosen to be part of Marbella Fashion Week this October. All this thanks to Director Lorraine Sultana of Vogue Model Management. Q. How has your modelling career affected your life? A. Modelling became and still is my passion - one of the main reason for living! Every personal decision I make is based on whether it’s going to affect my modelling ‘life’ .....I only work as a part-timer in order to be available when I am needed for shoots, etc. I do my utmost to lead a healthy life, exercising routinely and eating wholesome food. I try to plan my holidays around my modelling commitments. Modelling is my main priority! 69
