Street photography in London and meeting up with other street photographers for a walk around the South Bank, St Paul's and Covent Garden.  Re-tuning my eye after such a long time away due to the pandemic.

Look within - shooting in the rain and refining my style of nocturnal street photography in Cambridge. Looking for ambient lights and interesting characters, I am drawn to vibrant colours at this time of year and like to capture glimpses of life in an artistic way.

Venturing out into London's Soho and Chinatown for the first time since COVID and feeling a little rusty in my photography.  Photography is a creative art, however, it is also a skill and requires practise and refinement.

February / March 2020

Earlier in the year (pre-covid in Europe), I travelled to SE Asia, unfortunately, the spread of Corona-virus meant that I had to cancel my plans to travel to Japan.  However, I did manage to spend some time travelling in northern and central Vietnam as well as some well earned beach time on Koh PhaNgan in southern Thailand.  

This was my first trip to Vietnam and it did not disappoint - a beautiful country to explore and photograph, full of interesting characters and warm people.

As much as I love photographing London, there is nothing like travel and new experiences to get your photography and creativity fired up.  So, an epic four days in Paris were perfect to explore new locations, fine tune my street photography and play with a more classical style.  Even in the middle of a general strike (no Paris metro!!) and pouring rain, Paris was beautiful and endlessly charismatic.  

This was also an opportunity to work with the very talented Paul Sanders and to discuss a "conscious photography" approach and photography as a meditation or therapy.  This is something I have been working on and exploring for a number of years, so it was great to meet someone with a similar approach and understanding - very inspirational.

I have found photography complimentary to meditation and conscious living - it is a means to focus attention and stay present.  It also has a flow to it and once in the flow, it allows the photographer to open up and "receive" the creativity to create images.

Shooting in London for the day with street photographer Mark Fearnley; this was a day of high contrast light and silhouettes.  Not normally my preferred style but very interesting to learn from such an accomplished photographer.

Street photography explorations around Soho in the rain - street photography with dark evenings and ambient lights.

Looking for reflections and working abstracts using the ambient lights around Soho and Chinatown - I am drawn to these strong colours to create abstracts that require a "little further investigation" to understand what is happening in the image.

Street photography explorations around Shoreditch and on London's South Bank - the transformation of London at night is stunning and offers completely new opportunities to shoot.
