I absolutely LOVE this shot ~ the joy of childhood encapsulated! :-D
Caroline | 27/09/2013 03:26:59
Hi Chris, yes, of course no problem. Thank you for asking.
Nobuyuki | 26/07/2013 10:54:37
Nobuyuki - I love your work. I would like to use this image on social media, is this OK? I will of course provide a link to your site.
Chris | 26/07/2013 10:09:22
I honestly think one of the best qualities inherent to any picture is it being a timeless capture for years to come.
This one's certainly got timelessness in buckets - Ugg boots and leggings might as well to be here to stay, who knows?
Nilson Bazana | 26/06/2013 03:25:31
love the effective use of reflection
rob castro | 11/12/2012 05:24:43

Carola Ecthepareborda | 26/06/2012 21:00:44
Beautiful photos! I love London. I looked through all of them and fell in love even more!
Cassidy Luna | 18/06/2012 06:36:18
Beautiful! The Grand Canal, with Santa Maria della Salute and its wonderful domes, and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, low and in white on the right. The stature on top of the wall past the church is the welcoming symbol of Venice, the statue at the tip of the Punta della Lugana, and the customs house. I believe the picture was taken from the Accademia bridge.
Larry Courtney | 17/06/2012 20:34:50
I really loke this one. One can almost feel the biting cold wind.
Heather Thorsen | 16/06/2012 08:05:13

What a great pic!!! Love the depth of field and lighting here. Classic Robert Frank style. When was this photo taken btw? This guy's quite big now and I've seen him play live a couple of times. Really superb heavy bluesman. Was this digital or 35mm?
Django Waring | 22/02/2012 18:04:09
I really love this photograph, I personally did a shoot on door numbers in black and white that is very similar to this. loving his theme!

This one is perfect! The scenery, color, resolution of the camera and concept are all excellent. I really appreciate it. The moment of the couple is so sweet.
Yarra Valley Weddings | 06/06/2011 22:21:01
One of the nicest parts in wedding is capturing every moments. This one is obviously a vintage picture. If you will take a look at the photo you will see the passion of the one that captured it.
Service Design | 06/06/2011 11:31:47
you are very good excellent eyes for details as the ability to anticipate the action.
I like street photography and London I do believe is the best place for many wonderful photos action and the spontaneity of the people is present all the time.
I truly I have to evaluate that the equipments you have is the best you can find for professional photo.
It doesn't mean you are good for your equipment, but it helps a lot for your projects.
Again most the pictures are fantastic and is not a compliment is the truth
if you like you can send an email with contact us on my web site
Giuseppe | 17/05/2011 09:56:57
Whos this by???
Thank you for you comment.
It is not easy to explain how I convert my photos to black and white. I use Photoshop and few plugin to create few layers and blend them into one image.
You can only use the classic technique of Dodge and Burn to do this, but if you use some of plug-in such as Nik Software, you can also bring up some texture to your image.
I hope this will answer to your question.
Nobuyuki Taguchi | 15/04/2011 00:31:40
This is such a great shot! Do you mind if I ask how you process your images? They almost look B&W HDR, but more subtle and less over-processed looking. It's really lovely.
Braden Nesin | 14/04/2011 00:48:17
This photo is amazing. I've been looking through these photo's and they are all beautiful (:
Sarah Maynard | 11/04/2011 01:40:46
It was taken at Anish Kapoor exhibitions in 2009, the sculpture was in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts.
Nobuyuki Taguchi | 30/03/2011 14:29:54
Hi where in London was this photo taken??
henri | 30/03/2011 14:23:30
Hi Nobuyuki. I am really impressed with this photo especially the tone of the photo. If you don't mind, could you give me (by email) the steps detail to make photo look like this?
Thanks in advanced.

Nigel Pressnell | 27/02/2011 16:03:54
this photo is simply amazing. as a young photographer you are my idol! i took a picture like this only it was at the beach. but this one is way better than mine. you truly are my idol :)
Nicolette | 18/02/2011 15:25:54
Hi David. I did not use tripods. The camera was sat on the top of barrier wall which you can see in the picture on the bottom right. I used a part of my bag as a wedge for tilting my camera.
Nobuyuki Taguchi | 17/02/2011 02:53:03
I saw this picture in the June 2010 issue of Digital SLR User Magazine. I love it! However, I don't believe tripods are allowed in the Natural History Museum, yet I notice you managed to use a 3 second exposure. Did you manage to take a tripod in, or did you find some other way to keep the camera steady?
David Hardman | 16/02/2011 20:53:25
This is amazing. Nice work!
Heather | 15/02/2011 14:32:04
I want to work with this image or I will take my own. I need detail on quality. Please contact me about buying the original frame and Copy Right.
Brent Goins | 04/02/2011 03:16:57
Where was this taken? This looks exactly like my friend!
A wonderful frame with exceptional detail and tonality, that capture the moment perfectly. Very well observed with the motion and reflection, very much the sort of frame that tells me why I lust after the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4. Brilliant work and your portfolio is inspirational.
SOUL AFLAME | 25/01/2011 14:57:44
A castle that Iknow and love, and here you bring her to life in a dramatic and beautifully composed frame. Utterly superb.
SOUL AFLAME | 25/01/2011 14:55:19
A fabulous frame, and your eye for the shot comes through so beautifully here. The Nikkor 28mm is beautifully sharp and the delicate shadow play is a joy. First class photography.
SOUL AFLAME | 25/01/2011 14:53:36
Heyy :D Where was this picture taken ?? ... if in London where abouts ??

Jackson, turning off your PC helps you stay out of the digital world.

Ainize | 02/09/2010 19:27:19
Awesome Photo! I just love weddings. I have also read an amazing tips about Wedding Photography that when you are posing for pictures, cross your legs at your ankles for a more flattering look. Also, to avoid a double-chin effect, turn your neck slightly and lower your chin to create a bit of a camouflaging shadow.
Carl@wedding photography prices | 16/08/2010 03:56:48
i really like the emotion in this one. caught my eye. good work

I think that this picture really made me think about life because it is a picture of a light post standing tall in the storm and the same goes for the man...

This image and the previous one are splendid. They just show the English in all their glory, mad, independent, support a valid cause and tough. Did they park up and re-dress in one of the parks? That would have been an interesting image, the masses dressing or even undressing.
Thank you for such a wonderful thought provoking subject.

I process my row data in my own way using Photoshop and Nik plug in to produce my black and white photography.
Recently, I downloaded "Silver Efex Pro" 15-day free trial and using it to find out if I can produce black and white photography quicker than my current way of doing it.
I do photography as my interest and extend of my fine art background. I am not working for anybody for these back and white photography.
I frequently check on the website for any events happing in London. My wife also feeds me some information when she finds any interesting event mentioned on newspapers.
I hope this will answer some of your questions.
Thank you for your comment.
Photographer Nobuyuki | 24/10/2008 14:28:11
As an amateur photographer I am fascinated in how you get so much tonality to your action shots. I'd automatically think you'd usd HDR to get the range if it wasn't for the fact that you're taking an action shot. Do you use photomatix to create a fake HDR effect?
I understand that some photographers have their secrets so thank you for some fantastic images even if you aren't able to divulge.
I'd also like to get more photographic opportunities if not actual work, How do you get your photographic opportunities? Are you employed to do the work? Are you looking at events calendars to find out what's going on? Do you have contacts who can get you in the right place at the right time?

I really enjoy your pictures! They remind me of a perfect mixture of Ansel Adams, and M.C. Escher. Keep up the great work!

Thank you for your comment. Currently I am not selling any prints. However, I am planning to make this website as an e-commerce site near future. Regards

Great photo! Any chance I could purchase a print so I can display it in my living room?
