Photographing London

Living in London makes sense that it will be the most photographed city in all of the images that I’ve created. Although I am quite bias, it is a very beautiful city.

One thing that is clear about London is the diversity of culture as well as the diversity in its architecture. This city’s architectural heritage is very eclectic.its architecture ranges from Roman archeological remains to its mixture of modern architecture.

It’s most most iconic architecture includes Medieval Fortress thr Tower of London, 13th Century gothic of Westminster Abbey, the opulent baroque of St Paul’s Cathedral, neoclassist building of Somerset House, the Urban pet piece of Regent Street, the Victorian High Gothic of St Pancras railway station, the Art Deco Hoover Building, the austere brutalism of the Barbican Estate and the high tech skyscraper of 30st Mary Axe just to name a few.

London also contains many of the most important buildings of the British State, the monarchy and the Church of England. These include the Palace of Westminster; Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey. It also contains numerous monuments such as the London Stone, the 17th Century Monument, Marble Arch, Wellington Arch, the Albert Memorial and Royal Albert Gall in Kensington and Trafalgar Square.

From this long list of architecture in this city, it makes creating easier. It almost explains why the city is also full of photographers. One thing that sets us apart is how we express ourselves through the images that we create.

Whether you capture these images for a personal project or as professionals, the result will differ from photographer to photographer.

The most important thing that I’ve learned is to keep an open mind and be patient. Patient with myself and with what I am learning. Trust the process and most importantly enjoy the journey. Patience is important in achieving your vision. It takes time to achieve the images that we come across.

The beauty about the wonders available in London is that there is plenty of diversity that will allow you to practice. As they say practice makes perfect.
