About Me & My Approach To Photography

Copyright Ronn ThwaitesAbout Me

I’m a London-based Street Photographer who likes to photograph the places, people and things that catch my eye whilst ‘drifting’ around London

As a Cognitive Hypnotherapist & Mindfulness Based Coach I specialise  in workshops and one-to-one coaching sessions on using photography to beat blocks, become more creative & to increase wellbeing

I’m qualified as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner & Winning Mind Coach via the Quest Institute and have trained in Mindfulness Based Interventions with The Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice 

My Approach To Photography

I use a simple, stripped back ‘One Camera One Lens’ approach to urban landscape, street & psychogeography photography

I’m a great fan of the principles of Psychogeography and often just ‘Drift’ around the streets of London taking photos of the spaces, places, people and things that both draw me in and push me away

Stoic, Zen & Taoist principles also influence my approach and I’ve been a student of these philosophies for many years

Copyright Ronn ThwaitesMy photos often focus on the odd, weird, lost and unusual things that I see and I tend not to take too many photographs of people when out on the streets. When I do take them I like angles that mean they can’t be easily identified!

I prefer the things that people often walk by without a second glance; the lost things, the out-of-place, the strange and unusual

My images are always black & white which I’m sure has been influenced by the fact that everything I watched on TV as a child wasn’t in colour until I was in my late teens!

My set up consists of a Canon EOS 100D, Canon 50mm prime lens and the photo editing tools on my phone such as Snapseed

I also deliver Mindfulness Based ‘One Camera One Lens’ workshops and one-to-one Coaching Session on using Street & Urban Landscape Photography to beat blocks, become more creative and increase wellbeing
