Street photography in London with @rontimehin

by Bent Square |

Ron Timehin, a professional photographer, social media influencer and social media consultant based in London.  Specialising in Street, Landscape, Cityscape and Portrait photography. For Ron, the best thing about being a photographer is the sights he has been blessed to see, which only comes with the job of being a photographer.

 

What I love about London is it’s diversity. There are so many visually different places in London so it's hard for me to pick one favourite spot. Canary Wharf, Bank, More London, Liverpool Street and Broadgate for the architecture. Places such a Shoreditch and Brixton are great for finding interesting characters to shoot street photography with.

A lot of London is private property, so shooting it can be very difficult. In the streets it’s not to hard but when shooting in enclosed spaces or buildings, security will almost always be on your case. If I am shooting these kinds of settings, I will normally travel light and only take my camera out of my bag once I have reach the location. Make sure to scout the location first, get your shots and then keep it moving. 

If you are looking for vantage points such as rooftops, there are ways of getting up some but I wouldn't get into that. I recommend going to rooftop bars or seeking permission from the owners. You’ll be surprised how often they are willing to help if done properly.
