2016 Rewind A year in 12 photographs

Thanks for dropping by, and welcome to my quick recap of 2016. This year has been quite an exciting one for me. Firstly, I started a new venture for an art company named Colart in London, which brought me a lot of new opportunities and widens my creative horizons. Secondly, I tried a few different things photography wise, macro and underwater photography which were 2 subjects that I never experienced before and that I always wanted to do. I also improved my cityscape portfolio by shooting in 3 most of the most glamorous and electric cities in the world: Paris, London and New York. Anyway, have fun going through this short review, and feel free to get in touch. Hope you'll enjoy what's coming. Cheers.

To get in touch:


Beginning of the Year, A new era is soon to be started, in a month from now, I will be starting a new job in London. We are the 1st of January and looking at the sky, I feel like photographing the stars.

January | New Year under the stars


Just before starting a new job in London, my brother and I took a bit of time off together and we went skiing. I took this opportunity to grab some really keen shots of him in the air!

February | In the Air


I always loved to be near the water. After a photo walk in Liverpool, I went in new Brighton shooting this beauty. I think it is one of my favorite photo of this year. Feel free to check the black in white version on 500px: https://500px.com/photo/146118723

March | The lights off


At that point, it was nearly 2 months in this new job! I started feeling inspired by my daily commute and started a project documenting my journey. I also went, after work, exploring London to scout for new photographs with my old Fujifilm X100. For the past 42 weeks, I aimed to publish A photo a week under this Flickr albumhttps://flickr.com/photos/129861842@N04/sets/72157665351873130

April | St Pancras


There is a whole world underneath us, and it was quite magical to explore macro photography. I only tried it handheld with an extension tube and without proper lights, but I still consider that I had pretty good results.

May | A Love Bug


In June, I took my partner to Brighton for a "hen do", and I grabbed this opportunity to capture the surroundings. I photographed this barrier going into the sea.

June | Going to the sea


After a business trip to Le Mans (France), I called my brother and he told me he had a gig in Etretat (Normandy); he asked me if I wanted to join him. I said yes. No regrets this place is gorgeous.

July | Etretat

I took also the opportunity to record some footage and create a short movie. Hope you'll enjoy.


For my birthday, my partner had a really nice surprise: a water housing. So I had to try! We eventually went to the south of France. Who would be the better person to try with than her...

August | The Red Dress


September has been such a busy month, it was the end of our holidays, my mom went to visit us in the UK (for the first time in the 5 years since I moved in), and I received a new toy that allowed me some extra reach.

Septembre | Teasing


After a training day in Nottingham, I quickly rushed to Bradgate park to capture this beautiful sunset. I had to run, and speed but it was worth it!

Octobre | Old John Tower


Back to Paris for a weekend, and I damn I enjoyed it. I r ally want to shoot more in my native city.

Novembre | The Pyramid


A colleague and I started a Photography Scavenger Hunt, this is challenge 2 out of 21, and it became also one of my favorite photograph of 2016. All the photography's from that hunt, are on Flickr on https://flickr.com/photos/129861842@N04/sets/72157678041545465

Decembre | The Cabin in the Hood

Cheers for popping by. I hope you enjoyed this quick selection of photographs. I am sure 2017 is going to bring a lot of new exciting projects and adventures. I am currently finishing my Scavenger hunt and my 52 weeks commute project. I also revamp my website and refreshed the galleries, so feel free to go and have a look at www.adrienledoux.com.
