Occasionally I get asked to shoot promotional material for the school I teach at. Mostly it’s based around the school or head shots of teachers, but on this occasion I was asked to take general shots around Cambridge. The photos will be used as part of an accommodation brochure about how great a place Cambridge is to study and live in, although the I’m sure the photos will resurface in all sorts of documents over the next couple of years.
In the past I’ve taken photos while walking summer school students around town, so I know where to go to look for pleasant pictures of Cambridge. I also got to try out my new super wide 10-18mm lens. I ended up taking lots of slow shutter speed shots of cyclists whizzing by famous landmarks, although I’ve only included a couple in this edit. It can be hard to be inspired by the city I’ve lived in most of my life, but I think you can get good shots anywhere if you look hard enough.
