London Two Day Photo Workshop

 

350 (free night shoot or e6 Subscription included. See below)

 

Various weekend dates available for this two day workshop. Email me with your choice of date and locations.

 

 

Get creative in the city on this two day photo walk taking in some of London’s top locations for photography. You can choose one location for each of the two days, from three very different locations in London. The Photo Walks are One2One workshops, to guarantee personal tuition and individual help where needed.

 

Tailor your workshop with your choice from three great locations:

 

 

Location One: Shoreditch

This route is quite compact, which allows plenty of time for shooting and rest stops along the way. Starting at Liverpool St Station, we do a route around the popular graffiti spots of Shoreditch, Brick Lane and including the modern environment of Bishopsgate, finishing back at Liverpool St Station.

 

 

 

Location Two: Architecture in the City

The workshop takes in some top London landmarks, as well as the modern structures within the financial hub of the City area. The whole route is around 2.5 miles, which allows plenty of time for shooting and rest stops along the way. Starting at Millennium Bridge we do a circular route of The City finishing up at London Bridge Station (or More London if there is time at the end).

 

 

 

Location Three: Greenwich to Canary Wharf

This photo walk takes in both the modern and historic side of East London. Starting off at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, we walk through the Greenwich Foot Tunnel and over into Docklands where we explore the quays and modern architecture of Canary Wharf. This walk includes opportunities to do some long exposures, so a tripod is optional.

 

 

 

 

Information

During the photo workshops we will cover a range of  techniques required for urban photography. We’ll look at the use of different lenses, creating abstracts, shooting for impact and making creative compositions. You’ll learn about the various controls and settings on your camera including choice of shutter speed and aperture, reading the histogram, changing ISO and using White Balance. We have various Lee Seven5  system filters for you to try, including ND grads (hard and soft type), Little and Big Stoppers, Polarisers and ND Standards.

The workshops usually take place on Saturday’s and Sunday’s only (weekday dates occasionally possible. Contact me to request this). They start at approx 11am on the first day and 10am on day two and last 5-6 hours. We can take a break for a coffee on-route to talk over what we have covered so far. There is also the option of a bonus evening shoot included in the price. See bottom of page for details.

The price is for the workshops only. It doesn’t include accommodation, food or any transport costs you may incur (the Greenwich to Canary Wharf walk includes a short journey on the DLR. Ticket price for this is not included in workshop fee). This is done to keep the costs to a minimum and so you can plan your own arrangements for hotels etc, which you may find cheap packages for.

 

 

                    You will need to bring:

A Digital SLR or alternatively, a mirrorless camera, such as the Olympus OMD or Fuji X-Pro, as this will suit our shooting style for the day.

A range of lenses from wide angle to telephoto. Any filters you have will be useful, but we have a range of Lee Filters for you to try

No tripod is required, as we will shoot handheld tailoring our cameras to suit. However, if you would like to try some long exposures, a tripod is optional for the Greenwich Walk.
