We speak to Tony Sellen @TS446photo 2nd runner up in our #architecture #photocontest #photography #Londony

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.

You can see more of his work on his website www.LondonFineArtPhotography and his recently launched Facebook page www.facebook.com/londonfineartphotography

Cafe Art Volunteer Opportunities – Photography

Cafe Art are a unique initiative showcasing artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable.

They are looking for volunteers for the following events:

First event: Award ceremony at Atlantis Art Materials, Brick Lane on Friday 16 May from 10.30am to 2pm


This event is to hand out art materials vouchers to the art groups run by London’s homelessness sector charities, including Crisis, Providence Row, The Connection at St Martin-in-the-fields and St Mungo’s Broadway.

Thousands of pounds worth of vouchers, bought with the proceeds from the sale of the 2014 calendar, and donated by IKEA after the exhibition last month, will be presented to the artists and groups and we need a hand setting up tables and handing out ‘goodie bags’ of art materials to homeless people from the art groups.

Second event: Camera handout with The Royal Photographic Society at St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday 2 July from 10.30am to 3pm.


We need volunteers to help sign out 100 single use recyclable (“disposable”) cameras. You will work alongside volunteers from The Royal Photographic Society. There may be a possibility to pass on photographic tips and advice if you are an experienced photographer.
