today. Nikon 600mm f4e , D500 and 70-200 f2.8e . If you get offered, please report to the police . Got two CCTV cameras from nearby confirm they have the footage as my car was in the view, I believe in you London, however expensive set back this may be, I'm alive and well, life goes on, I may just change the ways I share where I am or what I do unfortunately ๐Ÿ˜”


Balcony goalsโœ…๐ŸŒƒ Truly a spectacular view from my last night's timelapse session from the 41st/42nd floor at the beautiful spiralling #ArenaTower ( used to be called Baltimore Tower ) in #CanaryWharf ๐ŸŒƒ Can't wait to edit them timelapses while in the meantime you can watch my story from coverage from all angles as well as replay the live story I did๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Working in partnership with @liferesidential , so for any info about these apartments, go to their bio and contact details ๐Ÿ“ฒ....oh how I wish I could live in there ๐Ÿ˜


On which rooftop are you spending your weekend ? ๐Ÿ˜Ž Got two recommendations for you - first one as seen in this photo - @boldtendencies rooftop of a multi-storey car park in Peckham with all your food and drinks needs covered by @frankspeckham ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒฎ Or option no.2 where I took this photos from @busseyrooftopbar with the @rooftopfilmclub on the same roof๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Both rooftops are very cool, why not visit both for a drink๐ŸบCheers to the weekend ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Want to experience this view from the roof of #55Broadway ?๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“ธHead to my insta story to find out how to book it for @openhouselondon weekend September 16-17th, but be quick as other cool buildings that require pre-bookings are already full๐Ÿ™ See the dome in the middle of this photo? That's #CentralHallWestminster and it doesn't require booking, just walk in, and visit the roof for another one of London's most epic and exclusive views of #BigBen #LondonEye and and #WestminsterAbbey ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸปThese two are not to be missed๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Update : 55 Broadway bookings seem to now be closed /full. If you got to book a spot thanks to me and the insta story i put last evening, don't be shy and say thanks๐Ÿ˜‰

My grid is certainly not of a singular feel nor colour scheme, but you know what - I just like posting what I feel like๐Ÿ˜œI like experimenting with new techniques, shooting at different times of day, shooting best views from high up as well as iconic London landmarks from street level, sometimes I even travel and post not London ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿคฃ And all that makes me feel happy๐Ÿ˜ Glad so many of you enjoy what I share and find value in my recommendations, being either viewpoint locations, unique experiences or shooting techniques๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป It feels me with joy to be able to give back for all the positive messages you guys send me and all the comments that I sometimes don't even find time to reply, I appreciate them all ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโ˜บ๏ธHave a fantastic day ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


Exactly one month to go till Xmas โฐ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚...well, kind of, till @openhouselondon actually, which is like xmas as you get to open so many doors (๐Ÿšชโžก๏ธpresents๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜œ) that if you're into architecture, exploring the city and visiting rooftops not otherwise allowed for the general public, then it certainly feels like Xmas๐Ÿ˜ Here's Nige @levanterman shooting a lookup at @searcysatthegherkin for which we all stood in a queue from 6am to start the day with a nice view last year๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Weather wasn't all that, but the fun was off the charts๐Ÿ˜ƒ #OpenHouseLondon ... oh and if you're still reading this here all the way down (thanks๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป) let me give you a tip - tomorrow all the listings go live so if you want to pop your name of any of the ballot special locations, again tomorrow's the day๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Is this view real? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŽก In fact it is, yet even I'm baffled how lonely #LondonEye looks on the skyline, as if there was next to no skyscrapers in London๐Ÿ˜ณ

Penthouse life goals are made of these, the duplex top floor apartment at #CanaryView building, part of #NewCapitalQuay on the #Greenwich riverfront with that huge balcony that I shoot this timelapse from last week ( if you remember my insta stories, or tuned into my live strea ) was to die for๐Ÿ˜ For more stunning properties like this one, contact @liferesidential ๐Ÿ“ฒ / #LondonTimelapse ๐ŸŽง Rap Dreams by Lowercase N .

The sunshine reactor๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŸโ˜€๏ธ
Because the sun makes all things better and on a day like today where my shoot didn't go to plan as it happens to everyone from time to time, I'm no exception, this bright positive photo is what I needed to post to make up for my sadness of no rooftop or nice weather today๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒ…


Just how it feels to live in London๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒ‡๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Another #LondonTimelapse , this one so fresh from last night even the cards are still hot๐Ÿ˜
Viewpoint location ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโžก๏ธ๐Ÿ“ฝ: rooftop of the #BusseyBuilding where I had the rooftop bar vibes on one side and the @rooftopcinemaclub playing Baby Driver on the other, it was a pretty cool night. In the view you can see the neighbouring rooftop space of @frankspeckham with art by @boldtendencies and the latest platform installation by @cookefawcett and all of this with the most amazing backdrop of London's iconic skyline. What can I say, rooftops are the places to be at๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

That Friday feeling๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒ‡๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง
Standing on the spectacular rooftop terrace of @cheesegraterldn while watching over my 3 cameras shooting timelapses for @timeoutlondon , left me with no other choice than to take a photo with my good ol' trusted iPhone 6s+ , so I opened Lightroom mobile and shot it in DNG as the standard camera app that only shoots jpeg just wouldn't cope with this light composition. Surprisingly enough, iPhone DNG'a held rather decent upon editing. I was just as stunned about how a phone photo can come out as I was about the view ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Can't wait to see what the next iPhone 8, or whatever it will be called, will be capable of as I am definitely overdue an upgrade๐Ÿ˜‰Enjoy your weekend๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐ŸŒ† #TimeoutLondon #TheLeadenhallBuilding #Cheesegrater ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿง€

Rooftops are made for social spaces, and @essentiallivinghomes is certainly embracing this๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Absolutely loved this shot from a recent photoshoot at #DressageCourt in #BethnalGreen - a new residential building by #EssentialLiving ๐ŸขIf I was to live there, I could see myself spending loads of time on this rooftop terrace - socialise, shoot, relax, work, eat.... literally would struggle to find a reason to stay in the apartment other then sleep ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚
