Street Photography: a day out in London

Street Photography in London

 

Nicknamed “The Big Smoke” because of historical air pollution which regularly gave rise to pea soup fogs, most notably the Great Smog of 1952, this particular London morning in March, was clear and sunny.

I regularly go to London to walk certain routes that I have scouted over the 18 years that the UK has been my home. Every time I train into Waterloo or Victoria stations, I’m filled with an expectant excitement for all the new things that I’m going to photograph. That unpredictability is one of the reasons for my love of Street and Urban Landscape photography. And along with my love of Street Art, it’s always easy to spend all day tripping the shutter release.

Feeding the creativity

I don’t shoot for any project, rather choosing to shoot what I see and like. I sort all my work into projects as I edit and process. I’ve always seen the editing of images as a creative extension of the act of taking a photo. This is because editing images sparks ideas and concepts which alter my vision next time I’m walking the streets. It’s a great creative circle

This particular route is my Waterloo Station to Liverpool Street station walk and measures about 7 miles according to Google Maps. I often veer off the route and return as my instinct demands, or, if I see something interesting happening down a side street. Getting lost is a great way to find new things to photograph.

 

Book me for a Street Photography Workshop

I have three established routes to guide photography enthusiasts who want to shoot street and urban photos but are a little nervous. They will be small 1 or 2 people guided sessions to capture London. Click here to see the routes plus types of images that you might see as we go.
