Bright Lights, Colour and Diversity: Photographs by Loren Brand

Isle of Dogs Life has over the years showcased a number of talented individuals who live on the Island and recently I was contacted by Loren Brand who is developing her career as a photographer and videographer.

Loren was kind enough to send over a number of photographs that illustrate her skills and provided some background about why she is inspired by the Isle of Dogs and London.

I grew up in Scotland in a coastal area of outstanding scenery and beautiful beaches but I was drawn to cities and moved firstly to Edinburgh and then on to London. I moved to the Isle of Dogs 4 years ago and love how connected it is, by river, road, tube and DLR.

After spending most of my working life in finance and asset management, I felt that I wanted to be more creative and was drawn to photography. I bought my first DSLR and I’ve very happily dedicated myself to it ever since.

I’m drawn to bright lights, colour and diversity. A theme I’m keen on is the mix of old and new. London in general and the Isle of Dogs in particular has all of these elements.

I follow a lot of photographers on Instagram so I’m inspired on a daily basis by fabulous photography from around the world. I particularly like the work of Jon Herbert (London photography), Nigel Danson (landscape photography), Peter McKinnon (a Canadian and prolific YouTuber) and fellow Scot, Albert Watson, who’s an all round photographer, comfortable with people, landscapes and detail.

I try to capture beauty in my images and want to share that so during the coronavirus restrictions I’ve switched my focus to developing images good enough to offer as large (and small) scale prints. Just recently I’ve worked on getting an initial small selection of these onto my website.

What I really like about Loren’s work is her night photography that gives a very different perspective from what you normally see. She also manages to capture some of the stunning sunsets over the City of London.
