My tuition has been deeply impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. See the current situation here:
I run photography workshops in London, exploring the South Bank and City, from afternoon to nightfall. The changing light, and the variety of subjects, mean a wide range of images can be made, and many techniques explored.
We meet for orientation and a brief introduction, discussing what we will cover during the workshops, which are 100% practical photography. There are different techniques and compositions to employ throughout the workshops, from wider views to abstracts, long exposures to street photography. We finish 4 hours later, but this is flexible and could easily be extended if the conditions are right.
Throughout the workshops I am 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 shoot both indoors and outdoors, there is 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.
These workshops are limited to a maximum of six participants, so everyone has plenty of 1-2-1 time with me, and as usual I don't race off at the end, so if you wish to stay on to chat or discuss any part of the day that isn't a problem at all. We sometimes even end up in the pub!
Any type of camera is suitable for these workshops, and lenses from a wideangle to short telephoto are usually sufficient, I normally use my 16-85mm and 10-20mm (on an APS-sized sensor). A small tripod would be useful, but not essential.
Upcoming dates are shown below, click the links for full details of the day and how to book.

We'll spend the workshop taking a variety of photos with several locations and subjects.
The descriptions of the individual workshops above will give you a good idea of what to expect, if you'd like further information before booking, please get in touch.
A reasonable knowledge of your camera would be useful, but I 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 London Photography Workshops costs £45 per person, with a maximum of 5 participants.
The workshop runs for 4 hours, and is purely a practical photography session, with a mixture of locations.
Everyone gets some 1-2-1 time in the afternoon, which can be used to address any aspect of your camera, photography, or anything else you wish to cover.
No. I have had customers as young as 10 on a standard workshop 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!
Children under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by a designated, appropriate adult; this may be a family member, nanny or chaperone. If the appropriate adult is not a workshop participant no extra charge will be incurred.

Yes you can, just follow the steps for 'How do I book?' above, and simply state that you're booking it for someone else to attend. If you would like a card to give them, you can download a printable gift card PDF - 627KB. Just print it, fold it, and fill in the details.
If you need to cancel your booking, please contact the venue directly as soon as possible.
If the workshop is cancelled by Daniel Bridge Photography Tuition as much notice as possible will be given and all monies paid will be refunded by the venue.
Most of the routes taken are reasonably flat, although there are steps up to London Bridge and Tower Bridge.
The Tate Modern has some stairs, but also has escalators and lifts if required.
Most workshops cover approximately 2 miles so a level of fitness is required to do this comfortably. Having said that, we will only be walking a few hundred yards at most between shots.
If you have any concerns, please contact me to discuss so that we can try to make things as straightforward as possible for you.
Send us your questions and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
A very enjoyable afternoon/evening
"A very enjoyable afternoon/evening of photography in London. Nice to be with a group of fellow enthusiasts. Good location and helpful expert advice when needed from Daniel. I plan to book another course with Daniel in the future." Graham R Green via Trustpilot
"A very enjoyable experience, walking from Blackfriars to Westminister Bridge. Although I have walked along this route at other times, Daniel gave you an insight into seeing things with a photgrapher eye. He provided helpful advice about the settings to use, giving you a chance to try different ways of capturing an image. He also responded to any queries of how to shoot particular scene." Susan via Trustpilot
"I attended one of Daniel's London Workshops on the 7th February and I have to say I was immensely impressed by how well organised and put together the workshop was, and while I would like to say I am more than competent in using a camera, Daniel’s approach, patience and guidance will make those new to photography, become more confident in taking photos. What I did like was that this particular workshop was extremely relaxed too so well done there Daniel, will I be going on more courses with him yes!" Andrew Hunter via Trustpilot
Great Workshops and Tuition
"I have attended 3 of Daniel’s photography workshops. The first one in London, from St Paul’s to Tower Bridge and the second, Sea and Shore at Walton on the Naze, both of which I enjoyed immensely. Having invested in a new camera I decided the easiest and quickest way to find my way round it was to book some 1-2-1 tuition. The session was very relaxed and informative. I have recommended Daniel to several of my photography friends." Paula Hayes via Trustpilot
London Photo workshop
"This was my second workshop with Daniel and it was excellent. I was introduced to the rest of the group and away we went stopping at different parts along the river Thames. The highlight for me was how varied the river actually is for taking photos and of course the harvest moon an added surprise that evening." Andrea Forshman via Trustpilot
"Excellent tuition. My dad and I did a course with Daniel in London, and Daniel was able to adapt his teaching style to each of us. My dad needed more help with the technical side of things and how to get the most out his camera, and I was more into playing with light and trying different styles of photography. Daniel helped each of us a lot and we both feel much more confident with our photography. I would definitely recommend him, wherever you are in your photography journey." Chris via Trustpilot
