This is Shari Johns-Jules a Londoner songwriter and singer, also a friend of mine who I use to photographing. This photo was taken in a Studio in Cristal Palace during a rehearsal. Shari has something special when is in front of a camera; She is very comfortable and you just need to control the lighting, nothing else, the rest is done. I took this photo in a small break between songs, when I saw her in that position getting ready for the next performance I set up my continuo

Every September from the 24th until the 26th (Check dates every year you want to join), Barcelona celebrates Its biggest feast:La Mercè; with more than 350 cultural events across the city.

The old stone spire belongs to St Margaret Patterns Church with almost 1000 years of history 😳. Amazing. #architecture #urbanism #london #londonbuildings #skygarden #development #architecturephotography #stmargaretpattens #uk #
Central line. London. UK. On Friday the 25th 2020. 18:25 Tricky thing keep the Social Distance on Friday after work. Actually, no much more we can do; from 4pm the lines get very busy of commuters and students returning home after the whole day. The Central Line, with a length of 46mi crosses London from East to West and is one If the busiest lines. Was opened in July 1900 and It’s a proper tube with not capacity, neither ventilation enough to keep a safe distance during the
I took this photo eleven years ago in Barcelona. I like to say that is one of my favourites fashion portraits. However, in 2009 this type of photos were not considered good images. Like, out of date or old fashion style not in use anymore. I didn’t care honestly, and my customer was very happy with the series. Was taken at ISO3200 f2.8 1/60, daylight White balance and a direct flash without diffuser; I used a hybrid non professional equipment with a digital body 4mp and an an
I really like this kind of sessions. Are plenty of creativity and feelings. In this case I wanted a Backlight frame to get a perfect silhouette. To achieve this photo I just needed a high contrast scenario pointing up the lights to the background (You don’t need to illuminate the model). I got 5 spots of difference between the high lights and the shadows, which was enough to get the results. To take the photo I focused to the model but I put in my camera the measure from the
London. UK. Monday the 21st, 2020. A group of protesters were concentrated in front of the Central Criminal Court at Old Bailey Street claiming freedom for Julian Assange, the Australian editor, publisher and activist who founded Wikileaks in 2006.
As commuters sometimes don’t realise where are we walking through; because it’s part of our journey and use to seeing every day the same scape. But, as photographers we can’t afford this distraction.
This is one of the most famous Landmarks in the world and anyone comes to visit London walk around to see the Cathedral. it’s a privilege take photos here whenever suits you.
What I’m trying to explain is that if you have decided become a photographer, don’t get distracted, pay
An English pub in the heart of Leyton just at 10 min walking form the underground station. That day I was having a walk enjoying the sunny day. When I saw Its facade in front of me couldn't resist the temptation to take a photo. Great building and also very nice atmosphere with good beer and amazing pizzas...

London is plenty of green zones where you can rest a bit or whatever. That day I was walking around Walthamstow Council, and I saw that guy relaxing on the grass enjoying the sunny day. To take this photo I got very close to him pointing up my camera to the horizon. I used a 16mm lens to get the person and also the sun to express the idea how people use the parks in the city, in this case "enjoying the good weather". This image was taken at ISO 200, speed 1/160 and f/22. By t
London, such an amazing city to be a photographer. This photo has been taken with a 14mm lens. However, I still consider myself a classic street photographer. I like to show life as I see, how people live, behave and use the space. I know it doesn't look like but, I was very close to the persons you see in the frame, a 14mm gives you angle enough to get close and lot of action, and also, "and this is an important point", you can point up the camera wherever and still capture
As a photographer, the light is your best friend. It is very important to stay at the right place and moment to take the photo. That's why you really need to follow the sun and calculate when the photo must be taken. I took this photo at 8:30 pm on August the first 2020 from the Tower Bridge.
