The photographer: 'I've lived in London all my life and have always been attracted to the central part, especially the South Bank area. Back in the '70s I was in the first wave of skateboarders on the South Bank, and fell in love with the area so since getting into photography, the South Bank has held a special place in my eye. I've even been called the 'unofficial South Bank photographer' by one of the Southbank Centre's staff.'

The setup: 'I started off with a Canon 350D DSLR. This lasted me a couple of years until I felt confident that I wanted to do something more than just kid and family snaps. These days my main kit consists of (all Canon) a 5DMKIII with a 650D as a back up. Lens wise I've settled on a 24-70 f/2.8L MKII, 70-200 f/4L, 35mm /f2 IS and 135mm f/2.0 L. I find these cover everything I need. For me taking the shot is only part of the fun. In fact, I'd say editing the shots afterward is a larger part of the fun.'

The work: 'I like to keep moving, and on a normal weekend might cover 15-20 miles just wandering around with my camera ready. My favourite time of day is early evening, both at sunset and 'blue hour'. There's such lovely light and everything seems to pop and come to life. Even a boring old building can get a magical glow that just begs to be shot. I don't really like shooting around mid-day, as the light can be very harsh during the summer.

'A lot of photographers will take their time and analyse a scene before even lifting the camera, but I'm a bit too impatient for that. I like to capture 'moments' a lot of the time and you don't always get a second chance with these. I'm also interested in documenting some of the new buildings that are going up. The London skyline is changing every month, and it's amazing to see how different London looks each year.'
