The workshops cover a wide variety of subjects, interests and skill levels, there is something for everyone. Each workshop is tailored to various venues and locations in London with a focus on advancing participants skills and improving their technical ability.
What you can expect
Each workshop will start with a brief look at some theory and techniques before moving into a practical space and putting these theories and techniques into practice. Photographic theory and analysis will only make up 15-20 minutes of each session. All workshops will be as practical and hands on as possible, so bringing along your camera will be essential.
It doesn’t matter if you own a high end DSLR or a point-and-shoot camera. We’ll go through and show you how to get the best out of what you have whilst shooting at a chosen location. After we’ve completed the shoot they’ll be a chance to look through everyone’s images and do some (friendly) critique, highlighting things to think about next time.
To allow us to help everyone as much as possible, workshop sizes are limited to 12 people – and extra workshops are scheduled if needed.
Things to bring:
What you will need will vary depending on which class, but as a general rule, if you have a camera always bring it.
Make sure you have warm clothes as we will be heading out and it may be cold.
Other details of what to bring to each class will be mailed out to those who have signed up.
What people say:
I loved the practical focus of the workshops, as many of us had some basic knowledge, a quick reminder before getting “hands-on” with the cameras was a really great balance. Learning by doing fits so many learning styles and makes knowledge stick. Going through the motions of making errors and tweaking settings is a great way to learn and understand. For me I found the hands on approach also pushed/forced me into unknown territory and made me try things I would not have done on my own. Making me realise that that there is nothing to lose in trying something and it’s generally much easier than you think once you have tried. Cheryl Meek
Excellent. A good format with a short introduction and then practical exercises with limited time for each before moving on and a review of the results at the end. Charley and Raj very helpful and generous with their time for individuals, helped by the groups being reasonably small. Mervyn Parry
