Douglas knows London’s sites extremely well, from the familiar tourist attractions and famous buildings to very some very special tucked away places that are well worth visiting but often not included on mainstream tours. His special talent as a local photographer is finding new and interesting ways to capture images of much-photographed London buildings and places that transcend clichéd shots of somewhere iconic.
Douglas will accept commissions from individuals, couples and families who wish to be photographed as they visit the capital’s iconic sites. He will fit around each client’s own schedule, with an itinerary completely tailor-made for the day. This can include special ‘surprises’ to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries and impromptu proposals or elopements.
The day normally begins by meeting a client at their hotel then taking one of London’s famous black taxis to visit as many locations as required. Better still, we can book a Blue Badge taxi driver who will give a comprehensive history lesson of each building and bridge passed en route. It is always highly entertaining and thoroughly recommended.
We will help plan the schedule for the day and, working with the help of the taxi driver, suggest the ideal order that maximises the number of different locations around London and avoids traffic congestion. We’ve found that with careful planning most of London’s main attractions can be included in the tour and with plenty of time for photographs at each site.
Douglas is a class act: he was friendly and instantly put us at ease and the photographs were not only stunning but returned to us quickly. He and Sam were professional and accommodating from the first communication to the last. I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again and again and would happily would recommend Piranha Photography to everyone.
