London Panoramic Photographs
Extremely detailed, high resolution wide, sweeping panoramas of London
by architecture and cityscape photographer Adam Butler
My London panoramic photographs have been extensively exhibited in art galleries and art fairs throughout London and have been purchased by countless private and corporate collectors all over the world.
They are all of extremely high resolution and with an immense amount of detail, as they have been created by stitching together many separate shots to make a resulting wide sweeping panorama.
This panoramic format allows to depict in great detail a huge span of the London skyline, and leads a very pleasing descriptions of this amazing city, be they of London’s tall skyscrapers in The City, views across the River Thames, a bird’s eye view across the rooftops of the city from a high vantage point, or an more intimate street, architecture or river scene.
I began making these London panoramic photographs in 2005 before there was any software to stitch them together. In a quest to create an image of immense resolution, I painstakingly stitched together dozens of individual images for each panorama manually in Photoshop, thereby creating as a final image an apparent wide angle view of London, but captured with dozens of overlapping individual telephoto images. The resulting level of detail and richness of tone was something that was impossible to achieve with any sort of film or digital camera. Since the advent of panoramic stitching software (such as Photoshop or PT Gui) this has simplified the process enormously, and I can now finally concentrate more on the composition and viewpoints, seeking out the most evocative views of London at the most poetic times of day to capture them.
I use the highest resolution cameras available with only the sharpest and Zeiss and Nikon prime lenses; zoom lenses are just not sharp enough and they also distort too much too.
Here is a selection of London panoramic photographs. Each is available to purchase as a limited edition fine art print, printed on archival fine art paper, either framed or unframed. Each is available in various sizes, bespoke or custom sizes are available too, please enquire.
If there is any particular view that you are looking for, get in touch as I might have it already, or would be happy to do it as a special commission at no extra cost.
All of these images are also available to license as digital images to use on your websites, brochures or any publication.
