PHOTOGRAPHY IN LONDON – OUR INTERVIEW TO ROSS MOWBRAY part I

If I would ask you “which city stole your heart?” I’m pretty sure London will be one of the most popular answers. And I totally agree… but when talking about photography in London, how can we be sure to capture this city in the best possible way? How can we be able to obtain a truly communicative picture? We asked something about it to Ross Mowbray, a London-based young photographer. Read the first part of his interview to discover his fresh view on the topic.

  • Hi Ross, and welcome on MPT, thank you for the time you’re giving us… before starting talking about photography in London, we would love to know more about your idea of photography; what does photography mean to you?

Well… what does photography mean to me… I find it a great way to challenge myself, both in terms of reaching that next level and to create a better photo than the last one I took. It’s something that can take you to all corners of the world, and can connect even the most different of people.

  • Where does your inspiration come from?

I get a lot of my inspiration from the photos that I see whilst scrolling through Instagram, often taken by the people that I follow on there. I also find inspiration just from walking around the environment that I’m in with my camera. Imagining how I’d take a certain photo, or how I’d frame a certain angle, but also how it’d look once I’d framed/taken and then edited the photo.

  • Which are according to you, the main aspects that characterize a good travel shot?

I think it more depends where you are, rather than a few certain aspects that apply in every situation. However, any photo that makes the viewer feel like they’re in the moment themselves, or want to go there is a good photo.

  • Let’s now talk about Photography in London, is this city the perfect location for your shots?

Recently, I’ve been shooting a lot of architecture photos, so I’m trying to find lots of different angles within the city, so yes, at the moment it’s almost perfect.

  • Which one is, according to you, the most emblematic face of London?

I would say either Big Ben and Westminster or Buckingham Palace. Mainly because they’re both easily recognisable worldwide.

  • Which one is, the best way to describe London with a picture?

I would probably say a photo that included something iconic within it. For example, a red bus, black taxi or a famous landmark.
