“I cannot imagine living anywhere else in London” – Maida Vale photographer Annika Bloch

December 2020

“I am a local photographer, specialising in studio portraiture (children, families, pets, also headshots, dance portraits and all sorts of creative projects). I have been living in Maida Vale for almost 17 years now and cannot imagine living anywhere else in London. Especially the canal is such a beautiful place. 

Apart from taking photographs in the studio I am keen to experiment and find creative ways to express myself through photography and digital manipulation. This love still carries forward into my passion for Blue Prints and making them accessible for portrait clients.

The image below is a Blue Print, which is hand-printed using the cyanotype technique. This an 18th-century technique that involves coating fine art paper with a special liquid and exposing it in the sun. The result is a truly unique piece of art.
