San Francisco – The City, The Bay and The Golden Gate Bridge

Our cities are, by nature, ever-changing entities in their own right. From skylines that morph into different silhouetted shapes each year, to businesses and people that come and go as their needs and successes change – these moments in time that I capture in my cityscape images are never the same from one day to the next, and the ones I’ve taken of San Francisco are no exception. From high above the rooftops, blue hour […]

Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney – South East Australia’s Cities & Beyond

It’s a horrible trap we fall in to, when flying “down under” from London: Sydney becomes our target, to the exclusion of many other locations. It’s the primary advertised route from the UK, and after travelling 20-24 hours to get there, our appetite for further travel can sometimes fade a little, meaning we focus purely on this one “cool city” on Australia’s south-eastern coastline. And, in part, rightly so – it’s an amazing place to […]

The Boston Rooftops – Beantown in Trichromatic Detail

So here we are again, stood on top of an historic building, looking out over the city of Boston just after sunset. What a view, and what a night. It wasn’t the night I’d been planning, to be fair – this was supposed to be a really quick trip to capture the snow that had fallen over Cape Cod – checking out Race Point Lighthouse for the first time and seeing how some new equipment […]

Chicago from the rooftops : Carbide, Carbon and a little Hard Rock

Chicago. “The Windy City” – home to some of the finest architecture, food and (now!) baseball teams in the USA. Stood on the rooftop of the Carbide and Carbon Building, now the home of Chicago’s Hard Rock Hotel, it’s easy to see why people are so fascinated with this city – looking out across the skyscrapers, neighbourhoods and river as it weaves its way through the juxtaposition of historic stone buildings and sleek modern towers. And what […]

Bye Bye Shanghai – Leaving “home” after 3 years in China

Well, that’s it! After 3 long years being based in Shanghai, this is one of the last images I captured of this amazing skyline. In the illuminated cityscapes I’ve now shot so many times, it’s easy to forget about all the problems, issues, health effects and frustrations that come as a downside to living in such a rapidly expanding metropolis – at least the view’s amazing! But stood on top of yet another amazing rooftop location, I […]

Burj Khalifa – The Jewel in the Crown of Dubai, City of Gold

It doesn’t matter how many rooftops I’ve photographed from, whenever I’m in a new city I always get that “wow” moment when I look across the skyline for the first time – and this was no exception. From the top of a building (which was, in fairness, extremely tall in its own right!), I set up on the ledge and started clicking. Sadly, jpeg compression doesn’t do this image enough justice on-screen, but the tones of the sky and detail in […]
