As a Nikon Photographer UK, I was approached a few weeks ago about taking part in N Photo magazines apprentice piece. This is a major 10 page feature. As a travel and location Nikon photographer, I was tasked with taking an N Photo reader on a tour of London’s best photo locations. The aim was for him to shoot a variety of street scenes and landscapes under my expert guidance.

Steve (the apprentice & Nikon photographer UK), myself and the N Photo magazine editor Adam met up one afternoon at the end of April on London’s South bank. We spent the first hour getting to know each other. We talked through camera settings, workflow and our goals from the upcoming shoot. All the time Adam was taking notes and photos of us to go with the article. It was a little strange to start with having someone photograph me teaching. But before long I had almost forgotten Adam was even taking photos.

Nikon Travel Photographer Shoot

We were lucky with the weather. It was a beautiful afternoon and evening for photography. I had put together a short route that included some of London’s most iconic locations. Our first location was the iconic scene along the River Thames from Waterloo bridge.

As the sun started to fade and the soft afternoon light arrived, we headed East along the Thames to photograph St Paul’s Cathedral. The spot I had chosen aligns St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge when viewed from the South Bank of the river. By this point, Steve was hitting his stride. He was starting to get used to the tripod and filters we were using for the shoot. Not to mention finding some cracking compositions.

We then had a quick stop in One New Change to photograph more abstract image of St Paul’s. Then we headed back to the river to capture the sun setting over tower bridge, the shard and the Tower of London.

Even though it was getting late, Steve was still up for more photography. So we headed to one final location on the South Bank to capture a beautiful night scene. We used the neon lit railings outside City Hall as the perfect example lead in lines in our images.

Steve was a great apprentice and an absolute pleasure to spend time teaching the art of travel and cityscape photography to.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to create a really good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never seem
to get nearly anything done.

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Thanks a lot!

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should publish more about this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t discuss
such issues. To the next! Cheers!!

It’s really very complex in this busy life
to listen news on TV, so I just use world wide web for that purpose, and get the newest information.

Asking questions are truly good thing if you are
not understanding anything fully, however this piece of writing
presents nice understanding even.

Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Thank you!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a
little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
