I live in the London/Essex area of England and I work as legal records analyst for a large corporate law firm based in Canary Wharf. I'm also a recent father (late 2011) and a bit of a gadget freak. Photography has always been part of my life. My grandfather was a photographer and it was his photos that first drew my interest in photography, but like most things when you're young, you soon loose interest. However after more than a decade and the introduction of digital cameras my interest returned in 2007 with a trip to China. Then in late 2010 after previously been given my dads old DSLR, I decided that it was time to step out of auto and learn how to use the camera properly. Ever since then Photography has become a big passion in my life!

Canary Wharf

Published November 9th, 2012

So I currently work in the Canary Wharf area of London (UK) and because of this I've become fascinated with the buildings and architecture within the area. It was at one point the most modern part of London with the Canary Wharf building (1 Canada Square) being the largest building in Europe. It has now paved the way for the development of larger and sleeker building across London and once again reclaiming the Title of Europe's tallest building (The Shard).

Anyway here you will find some of my work from in and around the Canary Wharf area and the tall buildings which I'm still fascinated with to this day.
