September 10th and 11th
700am to 1130am
Three amazing aspects of London in one wonderful workshop
Saturday route: Westminster Bridge to London Bridge
Our walk starts on Westminster Bridge in the shadows of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. From there we journey on the south side of the Thames to the London Eye and the Southbank and on to Shakespeare’s Globe out to our final destination, Borough Market near London Bridge. There will be many photographs to be taken on this beautiful route.
Sunday route: Tower of London To Columbia Road Flower Market
This is a route that start at the Tower of London – just west of Tower Bridge, as we await sunrise and experience something very rare in the City of London – peace and solitude. We will then wander through the deserted ancient streets of the City, before heading up Brick Lane, stopping off at the famous 24-hr beigel shop for much needed sustenance. We end the workshop in a riot of noise, colour and wonderful smells as at one of London’s most exciting and vibrant markets in Columbia Road Flower Market.
There are many many back streets in London that I know very well that have everything from picturesque qualities to downright oddness. And this is why London is my favourite walking city in the world! There is always someone new to discover!
Here are a few of the things we will be doing and learning:
- Shooting on manual and why creative exposures can make the difference between a good shot and a great shot.
- Get the low down on creative compositions and how it can make your photography stand out from the crowd.
- Meet the challenge of shooting in the changing light of morning.
- Spend time with a group of like-minded photographers – discussing photography, getting feedback and working together to improve your skills.
- Get your photos critiqued by Anthony in real time.
- Visit the best spots in the city to shoot London.
- Immerse yourself in early morning light of this beautiful city whilst Anthony will helps you capture your own vision of London.
“I had a really good time doing a private tuition day with Anthony and can thoroughly recommend it to anyone else who might be considering. What impressed me most about Anthony’s work was that while it is in a way easy to take a fantastic photo when you have a great scene before you, Anthony manages to make amazing photos out of the most ordinary places around London, and when I compared his offering to the other Photography Workshops that are advertised, his photos are clearly a step above the competition. “ Tom
“His teaching is easy to understand, laid back and humorous. Anyone can do this and be a better photographer as a result.” Harmen
“Anthony also inspired me to look at photographic composition in a different way (manipulating angles, exploring reflections, managing too many subjects in the same frame)” Veda
“I learnt a lot on the course, particularly around seeing images in everyday things, composition, and how to recognise and use interesting light to improve my photos. I think that before I did the course I was in some ways in a bit of a photo rut, for instance settling for aperture priority and auto white balance; this course got me out of that and gave me some new inspiration.” Steve
“Anthony is a great instructor, who puts you at ease, offers good, understandable advice and is good company. I had done a photography course before, yet in the space of a couple of hours he made me understand some basics which i had missed in a very logical way.” Tripadvisor review
“It rekindled my photographic interest having slobbed out with my mobile phone camera for too long.” Wild Auk
“Anthony is a talented photographer who is also a very good teacher. He is excellent at giving you feedback on your composition and tips on using your photo gear. “ Danilo
“I love teaching workshops and sharing my passion, skills and creativity. Photography has taught me so much about how to appreciate this amazing world that we live in – and I love to share it with people who have as much passion for photography as I do.”
