have been shooting my photography around the capital for around
5 years now. I have lived here all my life but it has only been
recently that I decided to get out there and shoot the streets
as I saw them. I began shooting images in the summer evenings
and built up a photo library of images from around the capital.
These include the obvious destinations such as Trafalgar Square,
Piccadilly Circus, Green Park, St. James's Park and Buckingham
Palace, but my favourite destination , and one that has seen remarkable
progress over recent years has been the Thames, especially from
the Southbank. The metropolis reveals its most beautiful form
at dawn and ends with spectacular sunsets and floodlit buildings
and bridges in the evening.
My stock library now contains hundreds of photos - along the Thames,
from Greenwich to Tower Bridge, London Bridge, the Millennium
Bridge, past the Eye and all the way down to Hampton Court in

For an unrivalled selection of hotels in London take a look at the London Nights website. With hotels set at locations throughout the capital, there's something to suit your every need.
you are deciding to have a holiday in London, I think it's quite
important to know where the best places are for taking photos.
Here is a short walk that you can do, starting at Vauxhall Bridge,
where there is both a tube and a train station:
walking along the Southbank - one
best places to view the most picturesque areas. The journey can
start at Vauxhall Bridge and continue to the London Eye, with
Westminster facing you from across
the river. You can continue along the path until you reach the
City, St. Paul's cathedral and Tower Bridge if you really have
the energy and also the time. Besides Vauxhall Bridge lies the
MI6 building which featured in recent the James Bond film.
This is superbly quiet area, far from the traffic of the West
End, from where you can admire Westminster
and life aboard the River Thames. Even the Londoners unwind by
the river !
