    Greetings from a balmy Rome. Today I wanted to take a look at Ernst Haas, my favourite photographer and, hands down, the biggest photographic influence on my work. When I discovered his books in the 80’s I was blown away by the beauty he discovered in the most mundane views or

      “I went on Anthony’s London at Dawn workshop together with my father in August. It was a birthday present for my dad, we both loved the workshop and shooting this special city at dawn. Anthony is a great teacher and gave us some great help on composition, framing and creative use of exposure. Anthony also raises your awareness of “seeing” light which has been a real inspiration and something that has furthered my photography following the workshop. Many workshops focus on the technical side of teaching you about your camera which I was less interested in. I picked Anthony’s workshop because it focused on creative composition, framing and most importantly capturing beautiful light – and it absolutely delivered! Above all it was great fun to experience it with like minded photographers and share tips and ideas with each other.”
