first commission

In April I got a phone call. Little did I know this was going to be my first photographic assignment… and it was in London. Working to a deadline, I was on the Oxford Tube within an hour, camera in hand, ready to begin my new project.

I had been asked to take 40 photographs of famous London landmarks and sights from an ‘interesting or unexpected’ angle by a London based publishing company. Right up my street! These photos will then to be published in a small book (65mm x 100mm) and given to guests of a prestigious hotel in London. The idea is that it is a visual quiz for tourists, so I had to think of quirky angles to take on some of London’s top attractions. My book will then be slip bound alongside two other books of London based themes, showcasing the work of students in England.

Running off adrenaline and excitement I got straight to work, and what an adventure it was. Overall it took me 7 days, 1500 clicks of the shutter and countless flat whites to get the job done. I had great and such a fantastic experience, despite some miserable weather and underground disasters, and really hope I’ll be able to do something like it again soon!
