As a Londoner, I wanted to create Templates/Looks that represent both what Londoners see and how they feel: sleek, urban, and expansive. From deep dark blacks to warm sunny colors, these are the Templates/Looks I use on my photos. Your street images and portraits will benefit from them too. 

My specialty is a long-form documentary, portraiture, and street photography, and that’s what I based this Templates Collection on. After years of work and practice, I’ve established my iconic black and white style, with deep shadows and blown-out highlights. The contrast between them is what makes this style so captivating.

Another style I adore is cinematic grain, which is great for both portraits and street photography. In this Templates/Looks Collection, you’ll find a few variations of this style that will perfectly complement your photos. 

These 12 Templates/Looks inspire me to create more, and hopefully, they’ll do the same for you. 

#1 Black and White Film Sketches — Get a classic black and white film aesthetic that’s gritty and brutal.

#2 Desaturated Portrait — Make your portraits dark and powerful by dropping the color and pushing the contrast.

#3 Documentary Street Photo — Achieve a classic film documentary look for timeless feel from the streets of London.

#4 Film Colour Look — I love shooting film, so I created a colorful grainy Template/Look to imitate film, with warm skin tones and deep colors.

#5 Flat Grainy Black and White — Use this Template/Look to get a nice flat black and white look. This is how I see London: flat, deep shadows and blacks, and grain.

#6 Golden Hour — This Template/Look pushes the strong deep sunny tones by enhancing the oranges and yellows to make images warm and dreamlike, just like any golden hour.

#7 High Contrast Black and White — Achieve my ionic black and white style with deep black shadows, blown-out highlights, and beautifully deep contrast between the two.

#8 Soft Glow Street — This Template/Look is amazing for soft shots, as it drops the contrast and color and increases the warm tones to create a dreamy glow effect.

#9 Soft High Contrast Black and White — Think of this as a moody Instagram filter on steroids, bringing an iconic film aesthetic.

#10 Soft Portrait Film Look — Create a warm dreamlike film Template/look in any of your portrait images, pulling the shadows to add depth.

#11 Soft Portrait — This is the classic soft portrait look, with warm colors with a filter to create a beautifully simple look that makes beautiful any image.

#12 Sunbleached – Slightly changing the temperature and dropping the contrast makes this Template/Look faded but beautifully warm, just like the beachfront.
