Thames - The River Within

SAVE the Westminster Boating Base

The Westminster Boating Base is a  charity which gives children and young adults the opportunity to learn to sail and kayak on the central London River Thames, at Pimlico, for just £15 per year!  The WBB does a lot of work with disadvantaged children and local schools. But that’s not all, they offer very low fee sessions for the over fifties and sessions for adults too.  Everyone over the age of ten can learn to sail and paddle kayaks and canoes. It’s great for developing water based skills, fitness, teamwork and strong friendships. All sessions are ran by qualified instructors. 

Coronavirus

As a result of Covid 19, the WBB has been forced to close 🙁  and their income streams have stopped. If the Westminster Boating Base charity is to survive and continue working within the community, emergency funds to cover fixed costs are needed to see it through this hibernation period.

The River Within

Photographing the Thames from source to sea from a kayak

Come and share my journey along the Thames by kayak. With every picture taken from this small boat, you will get a unique and intimate perspective of the Thames.

From ancient and contemporary London, boats and buildings to riverbed art and misty sunrises. The familiar Thames is reframed seen from so close to the water. Even if you know the river, you’ll find something new to surprise you.

On our journey, we will explore beneath pontoons, inside tunnels, up tributaries and between houseboats. By sharing my intimate water level view, we see the changing London skyline coming into a new and sometimes startling focus.

Kayaking photography must be planned to work with the ever-changing tides, weird currents and waves created by wind blowing against the tide and wash from passing boats. Juggling these changing elements delivers constantly renewing opportunities to reveal hidden gems, as we look outwards from the River Within.

Canvas Prints

Additionally

I will donate 15% of every print sale to the Westminster Boating Base, a children's charity, struggling because of a lack of income during the Coronavirus lockdown.

Imagine a beautiful large canvas print featuring London, in your home. That print having been taken from the perspective of a little kayak and so very unique.

It will be a striking addition to any room and great above your settee or above your bed.  

Canvas prints are now available for purchase through the thames.photography shop.  These prints were first seen in the River Within – London exhibition and are available in five sizes.
