Otto Berkeley is a London-based photographer with a passion for shooting cityscapes, architecture and London landmarks. He has lived and worked in South London for most of his life after graduating from University College London with a degree in Humanities.
His interest in capturing London landmarks with an original and distinctive approach means he is often at the centre of town early in the morning and late at night, sometimes producing surreal images of empty locations that would usually be filled with tourists and commuters. His photographs range from sprawling shots of the London’s skyline to intimate shots of the city’s street life, resulting in a perspective of the city that strives to capture both its epic scale and its hidden beauty.
When he isn’t photographing London, Otto’s interests are film and television, particularly narrative theory and cinematography, which is where his devotion to visual composition began. He can also frequently be found cycling across South London or wandering the city’s northern suburbs, usually with the aim to find something new to photograph later on.
