Street Photography Night Tours in London
18th April 2018

I hosted a London street photography night tour on the weekend. My traveller guest requested a private photo tour, covering all my favourite central London areas and hidden back streets to shoot after dark. The evening walk did not disappoint. Being a balmy Saturday evening, London's revellers were out on mass and there was a happy vibe in the air. It felt like a celebration that the cold, winter months were finally over and that this much needed warm, dry night in the West End was the start of Summer.

Central London, in general, is a great location for street photography day or night, but I think my favourite place to photograph at night is around the Soho area. It is a combination of many things, including the neon signs that light up the surroundings, the nightlife vibe, and interesting characters, as well as the hidden atmospheric side streets and paths. There is always something to photograph in Soho. It is also a great opportunity to experiment with your camera, try and be creative with things like light play, colourful abstracts as well as find candid interactions and street photography moments in general.

This particular photo tour started at 8 pm and was 3 hours long in total, which was just about enough time to walk the set route. We covered the areas of; Mayfair, Piccadilly, Soho, Chinatown, Leicester Square and Covent Garden.

If you love street photography, plan to visit London and need a photo tour host, I would be happy to show you around town and help you take some creative photos. Schedule to availability, I can accommodate both weekdays and weekends, day or evenings.

Seen in.... Westbourne Green, London - Double Bass Man
05th April 2018

If you are a local around the Paddington/Notting Hill area you may have seen this charismatic musician playing his double-bass on the streets. I'm not really one for taking photos of 'street performers' and musicians playing as such. I much prefer candid shots of interesting people like that when they are 'off-duty' as it were.

I have seen him walking around the neighbourhood with his double-bass only a handful times over the years, but have only ever caught a photo that I liked once before in the Portobello Road area and that was in 2011! Today was a lovely warm, sunny day in London - is Spring really finally here? On my stroll across to Notting Hill Gate, I decided to change my usual walking route to follow a sunnier path. As I turned a corner, who do I see walking up the road towards me?! Armed with just my iPhone I took the opportunity to grab another shot. I love when those moments of fate happen.
