If you ask me, London is the greatest city in the world. It has the lot. The streets are filled with a million fashions encased by every kind of architecture and there are places of interest to suit every taste and need.
Much of my time is now spent working in this city and my enthusiasm just grows and grows for our wonderful capital.
My personal relationship with the city began as a very small boy being shown around by my parents. Every weekend is was another sight or sound.
Then, many years later when I started my A levels, it was with tremendous pride that I hopped on to the train every day to attend college near Euston station.
My photographic relationship with the city started a few years later with some PR shoots via motorsport industry sponsors – an area in which I worked for over 15 years.
Leaving that world behind, it came as a big shock to have my very first London wedding commission at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, just off The Mall. Gulp. Nerves = huge motivation.
Since those initial inspiring days I have been so lucky to forge relationships with many truly amazing venues and shoot in some of town's greatest spaces, from the most famous hotels like Claridges, and The Savoy to vast churches such as Temple Church and cathedrals like Westminster Abbey.
I’ve also shot weddings in more than a few of the city’s quirky spots. Variation is key. I believe that being able to shoot well regardless of the location is something a client should demand of a good photographer.
I love the feeling, energy, excitement, drama and heritage of every nook and cranny of our sprawling gem of a city.
So here is a little pictorial celebration of some of my favourite places to shoot... I hope you enjoy them (click to enlarge)
