We catch up with Best in Show Winner May 2018 Daniel Bradley Photography #londonphotofestival #streetphotography

‘Lost in the city’ was taken from a series Daniel produced in his third year at university. Daniel excels in street photography using lighting and different camera techniques to produce powerful and atmospheric images.
Titled ‘Isolated’ Daniel wanted to explore street photography is a different aspect, looking at how lighting affects an images atmosphere and the emotion it portrays.
‘Isolated’ looks deeper into how even in our vastly populated society, full of communication and expanding environments, we can still feel alone and uncertain. The work looks to show how a single person can be lost by delving into the idea of being trapped and isolated from everything and everyone around us, even in a world so connected.
Images can be found on Daniel’s website https://www.danielbradleyphotography.co.uk/Photography/Isolated/

Congratulations to our 1st Runner Up #london #photography #londonphotofestival

Congratulations to Matthew Pritchard, 1st Runner Up with his image ‘Homeward Bound’.

When I first saw this structure, I thought it would make an interesting shot but the light wasn’t quite right. I returned about an hour later. I approached from the front and this man was bathing in beautiful golden light. I hurried around to the back to capture the shadow.

Matthew Pritchard has been carrying a camera around with him since the early days of digital. While he still shoots digital, he has recently discovered analogue and develops his own black and white images.

Congratulations to our Best in Show winner Daniel Bradley #photography #london #londonphotofestival

Congratulations to Daniel Bradley, our Best in Show Winner 2018.

Daniel Bradley is a photography graduate who focuses his work on using lighting in the streets to produce impacting and powerful images that form an atmosphere for the viewer.

Taken Canary Wharf, the image looks to express the loneliness and isolation we can feel. It shows how even in a vastly populated area surrounded by people we can still feel alone and in the dark.
