London Two-Day Photo Workshop

 

400 ( free e6 Subscription included. See below)

 

Various dates throughout the year (Sun & Mon only) available for this two day workshop. Email me with your choice of date and locations.

Available as the Beginners or Develop Your Style Workshop

 

 

*NEW LOCATIONS FOR 2020*

 

Get creative in the city on this two-day photo walk taking in some of London’s top locations for photography. You can choose a different location for each of the two days, from a choice of three amazing places in London (two brand new for 2020) (i.e. Barbican on the Sunday and Greenwich on the Monday). The Photo Walks are One2One workshops, to guarantee personal tuition and individual help where needed. Aimed at both the complete beginner or experienced enthusiast wanting to get more out of their camera and produce creative images.

 

 

Tailor your workshop with your choice from THREE great locations:

 

 

 *NEW* Location One: Bermondsey

It’s all about the Colour!

This fascinating route sees us in the shadow of The Shard, capturing it from multiple angles, whilst heading down Bermondsey High Street. Dare I say, this is without doubt the most photogenic street in London (there I’ve said it!). Packed with colour and abstracts, it offers limitless photo opportunities, plus its own views of The Shard. We also venture into nearby More London. This is a route not to be missed!

 

 

 

 

*NEW*  Location Two: Barbican to South Bank

London in Black and White

Learn to see the city in glorious black and white. Master the skills to capture B&W images with impact and see London in a new light. It’s all about tones, contrast, shape and form and these we will discover on our route from the world famous Barbican Centre to the equally famous National Theatre on the South Bank (via Tate Modern).

 

 

 

 

 

Location Three: Greenwich to Canary Wharf

It’s all about the Curves!

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. In a location full of skyscrapers ans straight lines, our theme is of course...curves!

 

 

 

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 take place on Sunday & Monday (other dates occasionally possible, but will incur additional fees. Contact me to request this). They start at approx 11am on the first day and 9.30am on day two and last up to 6 hours. We take a break for a coffee on-route to talk over what we have covered so far.

The price is for the workshops only. It doesn’t include accommodation, food or any transport costs. 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.

Warm clothes in winter, including gloves! Plenty of drink in summer
