Promotional photography that has been done for Festival of Cricket London 2017, sponsored by Sri-Lankan Airlines.  The photos have been used for the company's promotional campaigns online. 

The morning of the Cricket Festival London 2017 started with the tent setup and a knock out cricket competition between the participating school OBAs, culminating in a final match late afternoon. While the main stage was being setup, the Sri-Lankan Airlines stall was also ready to greet their customers. 

As a commercial festival photographer London, my task was to take the photographs of the event in the morning, afternoon and evening sessions. After each session it was essential to to place Sri-Lankan Airlines logo on the photos and post them on their social media with a brief description of the capture. 

Hainault Recreation Ground where the cricket festival took place was filled with various stalls and activities that included music, children's fun fare, a Sri Lankan Bazaar, international hot food stalls, beer tent and trade stalls. 

During the festival Sri Lankan ran a talent show which showcased fascinating work of Kandyan dancers. Later on, a number of artists performed on the stage, including Sri Lankan violin player Dinesh Subasinghe. The evening session began with the opening ceremony which was conducted by the high commissioner of Sri Lanka.
