Oxford street photo walk | panning
25th February 2020

Writing Oxford street might be a bit of a clickbait if you were looking for photos in London. But this is about street photography in Oxford, so… Anyway, here I am talking about another photowalk I attended.It’s always great to go out, meet and shoot with like-minded individuals. I also often meet up with new groups. I love to connect with as many people as possible, hear new stories and learn something...

London New Year fireworks
1st January 2020

Last night was the first time I went out to photograph London’s New Year fireworks. In previous years, either I was not even in London, or I decided to enjoy a better view and not wait in the cold from the comfort of my sofa. But not last night. I teamed with my friend Martyn to go out and scout for a place South of London. The main idea was to find...

Smithfield Christmas Auction
24th December 2019

Early this morning, like every year, the Smithfield Christmas auction takes place outside Hart’s Of Smithfield in London’s meat market. ⚠︎ Please read carefully before proceeding! The Christmas auction was a butcher shop sale. If you’re vegetarian/vegan or get offended or upset by the view of raw meat, I heartily recommend you go back to the home page and read a different article. I would never want to trouble you and trust...

Giant rainbow flag carried by parade participants at London Pride
7th July 2019

And in these past 2 years, I also went with the clear intention to shoot some good portraits. For somebody as shy as me, the London Pride is always a great chance to do so, because people expect to be photographed....

warm sunset over West London
21st June 2019

I often get my best results when I follow my gut feelings rather than plan for something. This story is a good testament to that. Since I returned from beautiful Georgia (more on that in a future post), the weather in London has been pretty grim and depressing. It rained almost every day, and it was generally cold and grey most of the time. This day was no exception. And frankly, there...

panorama of London surrounded by fog
24th February 2019

We just had 3 days in a row of morning fog here in London. It was all over Instagram as people were excited and filled their stories and feeds with London fog photos (#londonfog). Of course, I published a couple of stories myself on my IG (@fabienb). But I haven’t posted on my feed because most shots I took were wide landscape shots, and these look tiny in the app. Instead, I’m...

A photo of Camden Lock at night, with the reflection of the bridge on the canal
18th January 2019

I decided to kick off 2019 with a new photographic series on Instagram, all about city lights at night. In London but not only.My feed was never too consistent, despite all the recommendations you hear about making it so. In an effort to achieve better consistency while retaining the diversity of my style, I thought I’d share my photos as a series. This way, a good amount of similar shots will appear...
