Trooping the Colour, The Lord Mayor’s Show, The Boat Race, Henley Royal Regatta, The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant - these are the classic quintessentially British events that are watched live on television by millions of people in hundreds of countries around the world. Events the international press is writing about, events attended by photographers, reporters and camera teams from all continents.
Photographing these splendid events has, for many years, been a dream of a German photographer - Harald Joergens. In 2009, this dream came true for the first time and it has continued to come true every year since.
The photo libraries below contain thousands of photographs, are free to view and and available to purchase as digital images or fine art prints.

Today’s display technology and internet speeds make watching photos on the web great fun. Today’s printing technology produces a unique level of quality that beats any computer display. Creating beautiful Fine Art Prints is, for this photographer, as enjoyable as shooting the great British events.
The unlimited depth-of-field product photography is very different to the grand British outdoor events. It’s mostly indoor, much more technical and very much relies on fast computers, precision and detailed specialist knowledge. A line of work that might be called "Quintessentially German"!
Information about upcoming events, about events in the past and, time permitting, about photography hardware and software, can be found in the blog.
