Back to Photo Walks

Salford Quays  OR  Manchester City Centre

One2One Photo Workshop



Various dates available for this Beginners OR Advanced workshop. Email me with your choice of date. Various Saturday dates available



Are you a complete Beginner?

Perfect! Then we spend the day discovering the rejuvenated area of Salford Quays on the outskirts of Manchester. A fantastic place for photography in a modern, but quiet environment, ideal for getting to grips with the basics of your camera. Home to the BBC, here we have amazing architecture, bridges, water, colour, abstracts, all wonderful subjects to shoot. I’ve personally being shooting this location for over ten years and I love it!


For the more Advanced Photographer...

Do you already know your shutter speeds from your apertures? Are you already confident about using depth of field? Okay, then you’ll want something more challenging I presume?! Therefore, we spend the day capturing the hustle and bustle, the shapes, the colour and the movement within Manchester’s city centre. Creative photography at its best. We explore the various highlights of the city centre. A high energy workshop capturing the best of a busy city environment.



During either photo workshop, we will cover a range of  techniques required for urban photography. We’ll look at the use of different lenses, capturing abstracts and how to find and compose those unique 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 at 10.00am and last up to 6 hours. We take a break for a coffee on-route to talk over what we have covered so far. Each of these Manchester photo walks are One2One workshop, to guarantee personal tuition and individual help where needed.


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.
  • 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.





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 workshops.



Two versions of this Manchester workshop are available:
