Salford Quays One2One Photo Workshop

Half Day & Dusk workshop


 180 (includes free eBook)

Various Saturday dates available for this one combination workshop. Email me with your choice of date.



This rejuvenated area of Manchester is a fantastic place for photography. Home to the Lowry Centre and Imperial War Museum North, it has a stunning mix of contemporary architecture surrounding the canals and basins, offering a variety of composition opportunities.

During the photo workshop we will cover a range of  techniques required for urban photography. We’ll look at the use of different lenses, creating abstracts and how you can use reflections in your images. Once the sun has set, we continue to shoot this location under the cover of darkness and look at the various techniques required for a successful night shoot, such as calculating exposure, focusing and fine-tuning your compositions.

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 for creativity. The photo walk is a One2One workshop, to guarantee personal tuition and individual help where needed.

The day workshop starts around midday (depending on time of year) and lasts up to 6 hours.

Please Note: This Half Day & Dusk workshop only runs Oct-March.




You will need to bring:

  • Digital SLR or CSC camera (Olympus OMD, Fuji X-Pro etc).
  • A range of lenses from wide angle to telephoto.
  • A tripod is essential and filters will be useful if you have any, but we have a range of Lee Filters for you to try.
  • Your cameras instruction manual may be useful.
  • Waterproof clothing and sensible footwear.




Free eBook

The workshop price also includes a free copy of my eBook ‘Urban Landscapes’. This book covers many of the techniques that will be demonstrated on the Salford Quays Photo Walk and therefore makes an ideal companion to the workshop.
