Here’s a selection of my favourite portraits taken throughout London.
Stumbling across cars whilst out exploring is always a great bonus. I can’t resist a photoshoot with a fancy car when I see one. I have always had an interest in cars and their design. Sleek lines, sharp angles, superior quality - what else could I ask for?
Why have boots on the ground all the time when technology lets you take from the skies? Being an experienced drone flyer allows me to capture things from a whole new perspective.
I love animals, and capturing them through photos at their cutest moments is the most heartwarming thing. Whether photographing dogs, cats, rabbits, snakes and anything else you could think of, I’d be there in the moment!
Lights, bokeh, action.
The city at night is incredible. It adds a whole new world to shoot in, and of course I have to make the most of it. Taking advantage of the lights completely changes the way you have to shoot, and it’s a challenge I love.
Helsinki Fashion Week
I got the opportunity to shoot with the Helsinki Fashion team as part of London Fashion Week 2019, collaborating with them to capture moments from their discussion about sustainability and fashion.
Soaking up the views of the city skyline. I don’t think any other place in London could beat it.. well, maybe the Shard, but this is free. Nothing beats free, right?
Seeing such a tranquil place in the middle of the UK’s largest and busiest city was completely surreal. You could look down at street level and see people hurrying around like ants, whilst you are up in the skies taking it all in.
Word of warning however, this place is like a greenhouse during the summer.
The Milky Way
Now, I’ve always seen photos of the Milky Way and wondered ‘hey, why have I never seen that?’. I went out one night after hours and hours of research, and finally managed to get the shots myself.
Persistence, patience, and research. The 3 key factors going into this project, and the outcome was outstanding.
We Are Small
We are small. Really small. We are insignificant in comparison to the scale of the world we live in.
I love capturing this scale in a way that hasn’t been done before. Comparing the size of people to our architectural wonders hits the nail on the head for me. I find it satisfying, setting up the composition of the shot and waiting for the perfect moment. Jheeze, I sound like a wildlife photographer aye?
Playing around with perspective in my photography really helps me to become more experimental and opens up a lot more opportunity for me. I love being able to apply my own style to a photo that could otherwise be captured by anyone else.
Urban environments make this style of photo really exciting to work with, as there is a lot of depth and density within the city.
Nothing is more pleasing than symmetry, right?
It’s places like this that I live for. Architecturally built for photographers, finding these hidden gems and capturing them is a dream come true. They can be anywhere and everywhere, but without a keen eye, can be easily missed.
