I’m a photographer and film-maker, born and raised in New Zealand, but have been living in South West London for the last 11 years. It’s fascinating to see how this exciting area is evolving – for example one long-term project for me is the Battersea Power Station. I made this image of the supermoon eclipse over the power station last year, creating a composite timelapse. This scene will be changing very quickly over the coming years of course, as the new town centre and ‘architects playground’ sprouts up around the power station.
I love nature, and the parks in southwest London (as in all of London) are wonderful. Still, when in London it tends to be the built environment that attracts my camera. Just a few weeks ago, I took this photo of a friend’s custom-designed-and-built Harley Davidson. Great minds think alike – we had popped down to Albert Bridge (my favourite bridge in London), to find a Bollywood film shoot also in progress. A great example of the vibrancy and diversity of London! Get in touch if you’re interested in hiring the Harley as a prop.
Another favourite subject is the Clapham Common bandstand, about 10 minutes walk from my flat. This is one of many shots I’ve taken of it over the years, often in winter. It’s also a great place for portraits, in good or poor weather!
