Having looked at my website Canary Wharf Group approached me to take some artistic photographs of the Canary Wharf area for internal publication, with the brief being ‘creative/abstract, but with at least one identifiable aspect of Canary Wharf visible’
I was given full access to all areas of Canary Wharf for a two month period, before which I had carefully planned the type of shots to get, and the conditions that they would look best. I used various techniques from camera movement, creating a ‘Hockney-esque’ collage and using very slow shutter speeds.
Over the assignment period I managed to get over 35 shots, which I considered to be a pretty good haul. Living locally to Canary Wharf certainly helped!
I have shared my four favourite shots here. Canary Wharf Group also kindly purchased the copyright to these images, so I am afraid none of the images are for sale.
