Professional landscape & wildlife photographer Nick Jackson shares some of his favourite pictures of London

"I've lived in London for 15 years now, never intending to stay for anywhere near that long. This seems to be a common mindset amongst Londoners and particularly photographers, because every time it feels right for a change, the city itself changes again."

"In parts, the cityscape is unrecognisable from the capital I first set eyes on, but St. Paul's still majestically towers over the new-build offices and the same vast bridges which have spanned the Thames for hundreds of years remain unwavering."

"In one afternoon I can shoot ancient Roman buildings, record-breaking new structures or endless hours of street photography. I know that some of my subjects are the most photographed in the world and I must find a new angle, while some will be have disappeared by tomorrow and I will have captured something unique."

"Without a doubt the London has pushed me to become a better and broader photographer and that is most likely the reason I stay."
