British Life Photography Awards 2017 - Exhibition & Book

I attended the British Life Photography Awards ceremony and awards event last night at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I got a preview of the exhibition which opens to the public for month then tours around the UK (see more details below).

My Ed's Diner image got commended in the Street Life category and was also selected as the cover image for the accompanying book which is available on the BLPA website. The book quality is exceptional and it features all the winners and commended photos.

4-day London Street Photo Tour completed
02nd January 2018

4 days x 4 hours = my London street photo tour completed for my visiting guest from Cairo, Egypt.

The up-side to starting a photo walk in London at around 8.00am, in the holiday season between Christmas and New Years, is that the usually super busy tourist locations were more or less deserted, apart from a handful of early risers and work commuters passing through. So it felt quite magical and peaceful at famous London locations like Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street and St. Pauls.



It was also a great opportunity to explore and research some new side streets and passages, as well as visit some old haunts I haven't been for ages. We met a lot of interesting and cool people along the way and creatively we found some great scenes to photograph. I will revisit some newly discovered cool locations and see if I can nail the ideal shot in the process.

I will review the photos I took over this four-day street photo tour and post any favourites I find on here soon. It was really great fun to do, but also challenging, seeing as I am not your typical early-riser, morning person who gets up at 6.00am! So now I must sleep, with this job done with hopefully no more super early starts for me, for a while at least!

Happy New Year!
31st December 2017


I'm hosting a guest visiting from Cairo, Egypt. A private 4-day street photography tour around London starting today. Day 1 completed!

This is probably my first ever NYE & New Years Day that I am/will be 'working'. I say working, but photography doesn't really feel like work when it's your passion. So not complaining! Let's see what 2018 brings.

Have a happy, healthy and creative New Year!
