Lambent London - View from 30 St Mary Axe

Lambent London – View From 30 St Mary Axe

When setting up a shoot from a tall building, it’s easy to become absorbed in the technicalities. The kit, the back-up in case of equipment failure, the technical process, waiting for the right weather, there’s much to plan for. And then, there are moments of pure magic for me when the light is briefly quite startling and London is transformed into a city steeped in colour.

This particular image is an outtake from a series of 360 panoramic shoots from the top of 30 St Mary Axe (the Gherkin). The final 360s are due to be launched soon and will give a unique perspective of the City of London from the top one of its most iconic buildings.
