Photographing the Southbank with Energy

1

My lovely clients at  ‘energy design’ gave me a great job recently down along London’s Southbank. My shots were to be used in a local area guide, marketing the swanky new ‘Grange Garden’ housing development down near Bermondsey. These are the sort of jobs i just love!! Me, my camera, lots of walking and hunting out interesting places, features, and funky people.

The weather was glorious, so i jumped on my motorbike and headed down there early. My brief was to show the local area, its atmosphere, the characters, the bars and restaurants etc. If there is one aspect to documentary/reportage photography i love it is capturing the things that are there, happening under your nose… I love people watching and seeing people going about their busy lives.

Have to say the cover shot was my fave also, so glad it made it there!! 🙂

If you are down that way, why not pop into Grange Garden and see some of my images displayed in the reception area… here are a few shots from my iphone of me having a peek myself last week 🙂

Flower Power!


My new girl Lis, is somewhat of the ‘green fingered’ type, and whenever i popped round throughout the summer, was often pottering about in her garden planting , watering or shaping something … i grabbed ye old Nikon Macro 105mm f2.8VR and started snapping …and loved it! I’ve not really done much close up stuff, but i do enjoy the abstract shapes and textures plants and flowers give when seen under close quarters! I think you will agree, some of the colours are stunning! a lot of these images are from Capel Manor Gardens near me in Enfield…. Stunning!Lisi's back garden
