A Stoke Newington professional photographer is holding a charity photo shoot today (Saturday) to raise money before he runs the London Marathon next year.
Rob Baker Ashton has pledged to raise �1500 for charity United Response, which helps people with mental and physical disabilities.
Rob said: “The reason I really liked them and wanted to run the London Marathon for them is that they incorporate creative arts to help these people communicate their feelings.
“I read an article about them giving cameras to people suffering with depression to express themselves with, I thought it was fantastic as I fully believe in art therapy and would love to get involved with them in the future.
