A wonderful morning spent with Inga
London without tourists, can you imagine it? I got to experience it when I met up with Inga for a shoot around London.
I first met Inga and her husband, Juan, when they visited Dubai for a family wedding. We had such an awesome shoot in the desert. When I told Inga that I would be in London, she jumped at the opportunity of having photos taken around London. She has had photos taken at all the places she has visited but has lived in London for 12 years and had yet to have any photos taken.
We had originally arranged to meet after Inga had finished work but my travelling timetable made it slightly difficult. Inga asked me if I would be interested in meeting up at 5.30 am for a shoot. Without any hesitation, I jumped at the chance. According to locals, London doesn’t really wake up early on the weekend. We found this to definitely be the case. I felt for Inga as the had to get the underground to get to me. But hopefully she feels it was worth it.
It was definitely worth it for me. We were able to photograph some iconic locations with not a tourist in sight! It was total bliss. The only downside was that there wasn’t a coffee house to be found open either. The only people around were one or two late night stragglers. One guy, ran up to Inga and gave her a beautiful yellow rose. It was perfect for the shoot!
We had an absolute hoot walking around London on our own. The only unfortunate part was that there was no exciting sunrise. It was pretty grey but I suppose thats the UK for you.
