There's nothing more electric than London before a storm.

37 beautifully contorted photos of London from Lisa Wormsley

The photographer: 'I grew up in Clapham Common, moved around a bit. I now live in Brighton and Kilburn. At times, photography has been my only day job, but I’m not trying to make a living from it anymore. What’s happening is wonderful, we’re all taking pictures, camera phone technology is massively improving, and so are people’s photo taking skills. When people start to enjoy what they do and find a creative outlet, that’s got to be good for humanity, hasn’t it? 'The setup: 'I’ve got two digital SLRs. One of them is a Sony A77, which isn’t good for music photography, but is brilliant for street photography and events. I have loads of film cameras: SLRs, a TLR, compacts, rangefinders, toy cameras. I get most use out of the Olympus OM20, it’s very straight forward, lightweight, and I have quite a few lenses for it. I edit in Camera RAW (in Adobe Bridge), it’s usually all I need and is more intuitive than Lightroom. I construct composites (joiners) in InDesign.' The work: 'Shooting for myself means hanging out with my best friend, and loitering around industrial areas. I look at form and colour, and repetition of either. The best times of day are usually sunrise and sunset because of the lovely pinks and reds. But the harsh high noon sun in the middle of summer is great for contrast and makes everything look severe. It's also good for flashing subjects against the sun for a bit of a hyper-real effect.'Love these photos? Check out Lisa's work on Flickr and Tumblr.

29 gloomy photos of London from Arron Strutt

The photographer: 'I'm 21 and a born-and-bred west Londoner. I've always liked photography but didn't start pursuing it until I was 19. I'm self-taught and I'm currently saving up for a new camera.' The setup: 'I use a Nikon D3100 with a 18-55mm lens kit. The camera is perfect for an entry level enthusiast. For all of my work I use Lightroom and for stitching panoramic photos together I go to Photoshop.' The work: 'Throughout my work there are many photos with reflections. I tend to go out when London has just had a downpour of rain. I can easily be out for 5-10 hours shooting and might have not even got the shot that I wanted. I prefer to shoot alone so I don't have to leave when the other people do! ' Love these photos?

35 lively photos of London from Sara Melhuish

The photographer: 'I'm 41 and originally from Sweden. I moved to London in 1995 for what I thought was 3-6 months. Little did I know I would be here near enough 20 years later! I'm currently doing an advanced diploma in photography in my spare time and carry my camera everywhere (I've even fitted some padding in my handbag so it doubles up as a camera bag).'The setup: 'I initially had a starter Nikon DSLR that was pretty much point and shoot in automatic mode but as I developed and got more into it (obsessed) and got more fluent on the manual side I upgraded to a Nikon D7100 which I have fallen I love with. I have also invested in some ND filters which i am experimenting with at the moment, there is also a zoom lens 70-300 which I use for my macro and wildlife shots.'The work: 'I love the colours, vibrancy, amazing skies and of the autumn as well as the blue hour at night just before the sun goes down. I never get tired of London's architecture - the old and the new getting along side-by-side. It really excites me when I just choose an area to capture and head there, like Borough Market, Shoreditch or by the Thames.' Love these photos? Find Sara on Flickr or Twitter.
