South Bank and City of London Photography Workshops
After many requests, Daniel is finally running some evening photography workhops in London, exploring the South Bank and City, from late afternoon to nightfall. Meeting near St. Paul's Cathedral, we will then head south to the Tate Modern, along the South Bank to More London Place, with views of Tower Bridge, and the City of London.
We will meet for a brief introduction and orientation, discussing what we will be covering during the workshop, which is 100% practical photography. There will be different techniques and compositions to employ throughout the workshop, from wider views to abstracts, long exposures to street photography. We finish 4 hours later, but this is flexible and could easily be later if the conditions are right.
Throughout the evening Daniel will be on hand to advise how best to set your camera up, discussing angles to shoot from, composition ideas, and anything else you need help with. As we'll be shooting both in and outdoors, there will be lots to take in regarding settings, using the correct ISOs, white balance and so on.
There are plenty of places that are under cover to allow us to carry on shooting should the weather not be in our favour. There will be a maximum of six participants on these workshops, so everyone will have plenty of 1-2-1 time with Daniel, and as usual Daniel will not be racing off at the end, so if you wish to stay on to chat or discuss any part of the day that won't be a problem at all. We may even go to the pub!
Any type of camera is suitable for this workshop, and lenses from a wideangle to short telephoto are likely to be sufficient, Daniel normally uses his 16-85mm and 10-20mm (on an APS-sized sensor), and a tripod would be useful, but not essential.
The cost for the workshop is £40 per person. Use the form below to book and pay, you do not need a Paypal account to book your place, you can simply pay by credit or debit card.

We'll spend the evening taking a variety of photos of several locations and subjects. Moving from St. Paul's Catherdral to The Tate Modern, along the South Bank to More London Place and Tower Bridge, then over the river to the Fenchurch Street area, we'll see the light levels drop, and a range of opportunities present themselves. We are likely to stop for refreshments along the way.
The workshop will start at 5.00pm/5.30pm with a short introduction and explanation of the workshop. The workshop will finish around 9.00pm/9.30pm, and you will then have the option to stay on and have a chat and look through the photos taken, or make your way home.
A reasonable knowledge of your camera would be useful, but Daniel will help you get the right settings for each situation, with 1-2-1 tuition available for everyone throughout the workshop, as well as group instruction when appropriate.
My South Bank and City of London Photography Workshop costs £40 per person, with a maximum of 6 participants.
The workshop runs for 4 hours, and is purely a practical photography session, with a mixture of outdoor and indoor locations. Everyone gets some 1-2-1 time, which can be used to address any aspect of the camera, photography, or anything else you wish to discuss.
No. I have had customers as young as 10 on a standard workshop (children under 16 years old must be chaperoned), and have even run workshops for children's groups, with an age range of 7-11. The other end of the age spectrum is no hindrance either!

Most of the route taken is reasonably flat, with just steps up to Tower Bridge, but we will be covering approximately 3 miles so a level of fitness is reuired to do this comfortably. Having said that, we will only be walking a few hundred yards at most between shots.
Send us your questions and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
