When I think about why I take photos, and what it does for me, this is what I come up with. It’s about not living on the surface, skating over the rich and beautiful experiences that life has to offer. It’s about diving in and connecting with the mesmerising qualities

Photographing colour Georgia O'Keeffe

Unsurprisingly my mind snaps awake very early. This morning I think it was about 5am. I slipped out of bed and sat by the window that faces my garden drinking dark, strong coffee. Outside in our garden there is an abundance of green leaves – dark waxy green leaves from a huge bush

Street portraits and street photography by Anthony Epes 17

Photography has chosen you! Do it! On my workshops, taking photographs of strangers seems to conjure up a wild mix of terror and excitement. Most people are naturally drawn to photographing people, and I understand. I love it too. I think it’s a tremendous honor to photograph people, as they

I’m sitting at my computer and having a one-sided argument. The computer is not doing what I want it to do and all I feel is despair. I am organising my files that will eventually become prints, that will eventually be the exhibition that will be on show to thousands

    “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!”
