The Photographers Playground
London is full of incredible landmarks, and it’s skyline is in a constant state of incredible development with some of the most exceptional architecture in the world. Having lived in London myself for over a decade, I know some exceptional places in the city for great black and white long exposure photography. The River Thames provides a beautiful component for some jaw dropping architectural scenes that lend themselves perfectly to beautiful fine art photographs. This workshop is aimed at photographers who want to improve their photography and have an interest in city photography and architecture. This 1 day course will give total relative beginners to intermediates a whole set of new skills proving that 'all the gear' is not necessary to make a good photographer! This workshop, limited to only 5 participants, gives you maximum input from me.
