Paying a visit to the Queen? There’s so much more!

When a photographer is tired of London, he is tired of life“, Johnson would undoubtedly have told Boswell, had he lived in the age of the camera.

More importantly, he would have added “if you wish to have a just notion of the magnitude of this city, you must not be satisfied with seeing its great streets and squares, but must survey the innumerable little lanes and courts.

That’s exactly how we feel about this magnificent capital and London is so much more than Westminster and Buck House, it offers any creative tourist a lifetime of photographic opportunities.

DearSusan’s InSight: London photo eBook highlights 4 wonderful walks through the little lanes and courts, canals and yards that make this vast capital such an extraordinary location for photographers.

Visit 4 areas, discover 4 themes, span 4 periods and enjoy your London photographs 4 ever.

Written by Paul Perton, an English-born professional photographer now living in South-Africa, Insight: London is a tour through Paul’s favourite spots of inner London.

The 4 self-guided walks inside the guide contain precise information on the routes Paul finds the most fascinating in the heart of the city and succesfully mix to more modern architectural developments with slices of tradition and exotic street life. Each will easily fit into a morning or afternoon.

What’s inside ?

Along with introductory text, each walk comes with complete directions in the form of a clear street map as well as step-by-step directions so that you can make the most of every second on location.

For this first edition of this ebook we will keep updating constantly, Paul has selected 4 areas of the city with complemetary feels and shooting experiences :

  • The Barbican center. Post–war architectural and construction brilliance, or concrete brutality?
  • Spitalfields. The place where modern London meets with echoes of Dickens and a bygone era.
  • Shepherd Market. Genteel Mayfair, wonderful food and the heady aroma of money.
  • A canal walk across central London, from Limehouse to Paddington.

So, when you’ve had your fill of the big game tourist attractions – head straight to the lesser known jewels in London’s crown. Here are samples of the many photo opportunities you will find there.
