Mark Daly is a writer and publisher with a longstanding interest in secret and little-known aspects of London. He has also devised a number of walking tours of unseen London. He lives in South Nutfield, Surrey.

PETER DAZELEY FRPS, known as Dazeley, is a celebrated London photographer renowned for fine art and advertising  photography. He was born in West Kensington and studied photography at Holland Park School, now known as the Socialist Eton.  Being dyslexic he left school at 15 without any formal qualifications.  He feels his dyslexia is an asset because it gives him the ability to look at problems and objectives from a different point of view; he is a meticulous planner and imaginative problem solver. "Making the ordinary look extraordinary is Dazeley's gift,” says Sarah Ryder Richardson, who represents Dazeley in the UK.

His work has won many awards from organisations across the world, including the Association of Photographers and the Royal Photographic Society in the UK, EPICA in France, Applied Arts Magazine in Canada, and Graphis Inc. in the USA . Dazeley is one of the few modern photographers whose fine art work is produced as platinum prints and is currently working on several fine art projects out of his own studio complex in Chelsea, London.

Dazeley became a member of the Association of Photographers in 1977 and became a life member in 1984. In June 2013 he was awarded a Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society. Fellowship is the highest distinction of the RPS and recognizes original work and outstanding ability. He is married and has a daughter and a son; they live in Coombe Hill, Surrey.

'The dazzling collection of photographs is universally appealing; whether you're a tourist, a ligeling Londoner, an architect enthusiast, or a history buff, don't miss your chance to view or buy his precious images. His work becomes more important when you appreciate that some of these buildings might not be here in the future. These aren't just images, they're also a slice of London's history.'

"a joy"

"Taking in the Capital's best hidden archaeology, relics and structures - both beautiful and unapologetically ugly - celebrated snapper Dazeley takes us on a journey of discovery that even us born and bred Londoners will find fascinating."
