Salford Quays & Manchester City Centre

One2One Photo Workshop



Various dates available for this two-day workshop. Email me with your choice of date. Usually planned for Sat/Sun or Weds/Thurs.

Available as the original Beginners or Develop Your Style Workshop



Capture the hustle and bustle, the shapes, the colour and the movement within Manchester’s city centre. Creative photography at its best. We explore the Northern Quarter, Deansgate and Castlefield areas, as well as the highlights of the City Centre. On day two, we discover the rejuvenated area of Manchester’s Salford Quays, another fantastic place for photography in a modern, but tranquil environment.


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. 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 walks start each day at 10.30am and last up to 6 hours. We take a break for a coffee on-route to talk over what we have covered so far.This two day photo walk is a One2One workshop, to guarantee personal tuition and individual help where needed. Aimed at both the complete beginner or enthusiast ready to get more out of using their camera and producing creative images.


The price is for the workshop only. It does not 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 camera. Any camera! We cater for all types
  • A range of lenses from wide angle to telephoto. Or just bring you favourite lens and we’ll work with that.
  • No tripod is required as we shoot handheld and set up our cameras to suit this style of shooting.
  • However, if you want to try some long exposures in Salford Quays, then you can bring that tripod if you wish.
  • Any filters you have will be useful, but we have a range of Lee Filters for you to try too.
  • Waterproof clothing and sensible footwear.
  • An open and creative mind is also very useful!





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 Manchester Photo Walk and therefore makes an ideal companion to the workshop.
