44 beautiful photos of London from Chris Brink

A celebration of the city's architecture and geography

By Chris Brink

The photographer: ‘I’m a 33 year-old South African living in London for the last seven years and have been in love with the city ever since I moved here. I used to play in a popular band in South Africa and was involved in a lot of photo shoots, but always on the ‘wrong’ side of the camera. This piqued my interest in photography but I never pursued it until Instagram came along. I posted my first photo in 2011 and things progressed from there! I have no formal training in photography and learnt most of what I know from the Internet, photography forums and a friend who is a photographer. I have a day job in IT and am a part-time music producer.’

The set-up: ‘I use a Canon EOS M with 4 lenses: the 18-55mm kit lens, the 22mm F2.0, the 11-22mm ultra-wide angle lens and I have a 50mm F1.4 that I use with an EF-m adapter. I really love this setup as it’s small, discrete, and light. It’s got all the controls and features of an SLR but without the bulk. I only shoot in RAW and process all my images in Adobe Lightroom.’

The work: 'I would call myself a street photographer. In a city as stunning as London there is plenty of inspiration so I carry my camera around with me at all times, just in case. For street shots I tend to frame the static elements first and then wait for something to happen in the scene. On one occasion I waited for over an hour just so that I could capture a cyclist in exactly the right position.

I’ve recently started doing portrait work, it's been great getting out of my comfort zone and being challenged.'
