London Photo Walks

Last Saturday we had the pleasure to meet up with members of The Guild of Photographers and Ready Steady Pro community for a London Photo Walk, with the aim of taking some documentary style street photography.

Documentary street photography is essentially documentary photography which is aimed at capturing people or places. This style of photography has been popular since the 1890’s. It is even more popular now through the use of both DSLR and mirrorless cameras, such as the Fuji X-T1 or Olympus OM-E-M5.

The photo walk was planned over 2 stages. A 1.00pm start from the London Eye on the Southbank and a 4.00pm start from Covent Garden. We took part in the first stage of the walk which took in the Southbank followed by a tube journey to Green Park. Our walk took in The Ritz Piccadilly, Burlington Arcade, Carnaby Street, and Piccadilly Circus. We then headed back down to Charing Cross railway station for our return home.

Before meeting up with the group on the Southbank, we stopped off at the City Hall/Tower Bridge area. This is a great place to capture architecture, people and nature in a relatively small location!

Below are a selection of our images taken on the day.

Hall Place Family Photo Shoot with Jackie and Family

At Oakhouse Photography we enjoy family photo shoots throughout the year. Every season is different and each season gives us a fresh opportunity to be creative with the lighting, location and the mood we create for our images.

The Hall Place Family Photo Shoot with Jackie and family was purchased as a Family Photo Shoot Gift using one of our Gift Vouchers.

We agreed on Hall Place as a lovely location which always looks beautiful, whatever the time of year! In February 2015 we met Jackie, her husband and son, and captured some lovely images of them all. The weather was a little cold and damp, but we used that to our advantage and had a winning ‘model’ in Jackie’s son, who certainly seemed to connect with his inner Gene Kelly!

It was a great shoot, lots of fun and just a little singing in the rain!
