Almost everybody loves a good black and white photo.
By taking away colour, the photos are taken into a medium of their own, an different version of the reality we see.
Black and white photography is great for eliminating distracting element in a photo, drawing the our attention to shape and form.
Photos can look timeless and classic, connecting in our association to images we’ve seen in the past.
Mundane interiors can become effective frames around a subjectBlack and white emphasises the use of lines in photos.

Less distractions mean that every day surroundings often look cinematic and inspiring. This walk down from Islington town hall would look different in colour. and textures really come out. Composition plays a big role when there is not colour.
I use a lot of black and white for my wedding photography. Couples often request it and I really enjoy the discipline.
I hope you enjoyed the photos here. You can get in touch or leave a comment.
