The High and The Mighty
This photo of St Paul’s Cathedral and The Millennium Bridge was taken the day after the super moon, the large full moon had made the tide higher than I’d ever seen it before. There was some beautiful light from the low winter sun lighting up the Cathedrals dome and making the high water shimmer. It’s a popular subject for most photographers due to having two very iconic London structures so close to each other. Sir Christopher Wren’s 17th century English Baroque architecture still dominates the London skyline while the modern Millennium Bridge adds some sleek metallic lines reaching across the river.
Let’s Go Round Again
Contrasting shapes and tones is what caught my attention to take this photo. The bright curves and the dark straight edges surrounding it, both brought together with the reflection in the window. Modern interior architecture at its best.
Tony is a self-taught photographer shooting with Nikon cameras. He is passionate about fine art, long exposure images and, based in London, The City is where he finds most of his inspiration. The theme architecture for London Photo Festivals competition was ideal for his style of photography. Being a previous competition runner up in London Photo Festival competitions, it’s a great achievement to once again have images selected in the top three.
“Congratulations to the London Photo Festival Architecture Competition winners! There were many exceptional photographers deserving of recognition for their fine work and it was a difficult task to narrow it down to just a few. Kudos to everyone who submitted work; it takes courage and boldness to put yourself out there and I hope that you’ll all continue to do so in the future. Thank you to the London Photo Festival for a great experience. It was an honour and privilege to collaborate with you.”
Thank you for being our judge, Johnny – it was a pleasure to work with you too!

We are honoured to announce the judge for our current architecture photography competition. Voted as one of the top 14 of the world’s architecture photographers, Johnny Kerr is an American fine art photographer based in Arizona who has pursued art in various forms since childhood. His college studies and post-graduate vocation concentrated on graphic design but during his late twenties a desire to change careers brought him back to school to study education. Removed from the commercial sector, and creating art solely for himself once again, Johnny found a new voice in the medium of photography.
