Photojournalism in London

As a photographer, being able to live and and work in London is a great privilege. The city is full of photographic opportunities, whether it’s formal events or everyday life. I love visiting and shooting new places and taking pictures of people I only just met. 

All the photos here were taken in London over the last decade. When I go out and shoot exteriors, I am inspired by the legendary photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the pioneers of street photography. Henri was born in 1908 and lived until the ripe old age of 95.  For Henri, waiting until you get the decisive moment was crucial. I always try to follow his example and wait until I feel that the very best moment has come up.
