    Time for Reflections Here in London the rains have come and autumn has truly pushed summer away. It’s my son’s favourite time of year, increasingly cold and dark days, time to be cosy at home. I must say the cold and the rain are severely testing for me. And so

    Note: I have one last exciting photo trip this year, to Istanbul! I’ll be working on my book of Istanbul at Dawn and running a five day photo workshop, which will be an amazing adventure; inspiring, challenging and fun. I have a couple of spaces available. Staying Motivated Yesterday I was

    The Thames at Richmond © Anthony Epes “True freedom is impossible without a mind made free by discipline.” Mortimer J. Adler In my little house in the far west of London, life is very quiet. My area has been drained of people, presumably taking off on holidays and perhaps in the search of

    Composition tips: Love them lines

    I wrote a short post last year about ‘leading lines’ but I wanted to come back to it and go more in depth as I use it all of the time in my photos – it’s one of my favourite compositional techniques. Plus I want to write a gamut of

    Four ideas for inspiration

    Joshua Tree Desert, California 1993  © Anthony Epes This week I’m exploring that really cool concept of ‘indirect inspiration’ that I quoted in my post about Ernst Haas. To be honest, it’s not something I’d thought about much until I was writing about Ernst Haas and came across this quote. Haas warned

    Creativity and Age

    Posted: July 3, 2015 by Anthony Epes   -   4 Comments

    Greeting from a Saharan heated Paris. I think there is this weird idea floating around that creativity is a young person’s game, particularly certain genres of creativity (photography and music for sure). That somehow you are at your peak creatively in your twenties and thirties, and then it’s downhill from then on.

    How to Photograph London: Juxtaposition

    Posted: June 23, 2015 by Anthony Epes   -   1 Comment

    I came to London in 2000 from Los Angeles. I followed a girl and a book deal, two excellent reasons to move continents, and I’ve lived here ever since. London is such a crazy, huge, messy city, and it’s endlessly interesting to photograph. But the vastness can be intimidating. A

    Two essential things you need to be a great photographer

    This week a short post to say that Diana and I have got something super incredible to give you (and it’s totally free….gratis, nada pesos). We’ve been working on this for the past six months. I’m now going to drop the English facade of mild self deprecation that I’ve had to

      “I would highly recommend Anthony’s London at Dawn workshop. I joined for the Tower Bridge to Columbia Road leg, and thoroughly enjoyed it (including the coffee and bagel stops along the way). The group was just the right size; Anthony was really great at tailoring his advice towards each student’s learning needs whilst also creating space for students to share their own experiences/techniques/do’s and don’ts. Not only did I learn how to avoid some typical faux pas for dawn shooting, but Anthony also inspired me to look at photographic composition in a different way (manipulating angles, exploring reflections, managing too many subjects in the same frame). All in all – a great course to go on regardless of your technical level – and if you are an avid photographer visiting London, definitely get on this course to explore some of the less obvious but beautiful bits of London. Waking up at 3am in the morning can definitely give you a new perspective on what’s interesting to photograph!”
