Tony Sellen is a self-taught, award-winning photographer. He is passionate about fine art, long exposure images and, based in London, the City is where Tony finds most of his inspiration. Tony set up his own website (www.LondonFineArtPhotography.co.uk ) to display his work and is also now successfully selling limited edition prints through it. London Fine Art Photography has images of London, other cities from around the world, seascapes, landscapes and nature. Tony travels extensively with his camera always at the ready, capturing whatever the world has to offer. Always looking to progress as a photographer, exhibiting and entering competitions is a great way to gage progression. Having previously exhibited at London Photo Festival, it was a great opportunity to have the chance of entering the Abstract / Fine Art photo competition.
Tony was delighted that his two photographs ‘Bright Idea’ and ‘Can’t See The Sea’ were selected in the 20 finalists. With ‘Bright Idea’ taking the 2 nd Runner Up spot. The photograph was of a spiral staircase taken in the city of Prague, Czech Republic. From the bottom looking up it takes a fabulous light bulb shape with the light shining through the windows on the top floor.

We asked photographers what motivated them to enter photography competitions and the chance to exhibit their work was their top response.
We are proud to present our third photography competition for 2016 and we invited photographers to challenge our perspective of abstract or fine art photography.
We received over 525 entries from 35 countries and our judge, Andre Lichtenberg, selected his top 20 finalists. The top 3 winners won £500, £300 and £200 respectively and are exhibited from 19-21 May.
Andre said: ‘I had the privilege to spend a couple of days judging the London Photo Festival’s Abstract Fine Art Photographic competition, previous judges included Simon Norfolk and Laura Noble. It was an honour to be part of a fine art photography exhibition from the other side. Very often, I am the one submitting to shows and competitions as an artist. Congratulations to all the finalists!’
You can see the winners and the other 17 finalists at the London Photo Festival 19th-21st May 2016.
