“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
Doing street photography in London is like nowhere else. Sure, as one of the world’s great urban centers, London is undoubtedly an amazing place for shooting pretty much any kind of photography (well, except wild landscapes of course). But while many North American and even some European cities have lost a lot of their street life in recent years (thanks smartphones) London’s thoroughfares remain as bustling and vibrant as ever. Visiting the British capital to shoot some street photography of your own? Unsure where to start? Here are my favorite London neighborhoods for capturing lively, varied, and often quite eccentric British street life.
