Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

This week, we show­case Fokrul Is­lam’s land­scape im­ages of Lon­don

Fokrul Is­lam

In 2005, 38-year- old Fokrul Is­lam bought his first DSLR, a Nikon D70, to take pic­tures of his fam­ily. These days how­ever he finds him­self shoot­ing dif­fer­ent sub­jects. He works in IT, which he de­scribes as a tech­ni­cal in­dus­try with lit­tle scope for cre­ativ­ity – pho­tog­ra­phy pro­vides him with a cre­ative out­let. Liv­ing in Lon­don, he loves shoot­ing the Lon­don sky­line dur­ing the golden and blue hours of the day. He says, ‘ The city can look ab­so­lutely stun­ning at these times (if there is good weather). The views along the River Thames are a par­tic­u­lar favourite of mine.’
