It’s all in the detail…

How does one capture the essence of a place?
Here is a second taster of my Insight City Guide to London… Borough market, Kew, Ham House, Hogarth house, Chelsea Physic Garden, Westminster Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, Hampton Court and Chiswick House. I just laugh at the three elderly ladies in Chelsea Physic Garden with the busk of a man’s head amongst the flowers. I often am trying to get low and shoot through layers to create atmosphere. Trying to remember to look for all the angles; the graphic shot from above, or the low down close up where you can almost smell those cakes! Feel free to write to me at the foot of any of my blogs.

Beyond my commissions I teach a few short courses at Morley College, London. Why not come along to one of my ‘Street Photography’ courses? Two Saturday workshop 21 & 28 Sept 2013, and better still a 6 week program, working to themes within Street photography,  3 hrs a week from 4 November 2013.

A world of interiors

As the Travel bug is still getting to me I reflect on aspect I have enjoyed doing past travel book commissions, especially Thames & Hudson Style City Europe book where I shot the Lisbon Chapter, and beautiful Paris for Rough Guides. With these two books I got to show how I enjoy to shoot interiors as much as capturing a sense of a location at street level too. Both books gave me the opportunities to shoot in top rated venues. Here below are some of my images from these publications.
