After many requests, Daniel is now running photography workshops in London, exploring the South Bank and City, from afternoon to nightfall.
We meet for a brief introduction and orientation, discussing what we will be covering 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 later if the conditions are right.
Throughout the workshops Daniel is 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 in 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. There is a maximum of six participants on these workshops, so everyone has plenty of 1-2-1 time with Daniel, and as usual Daniel doesn'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, Daniel normally uses his 16-85mm and 10-20mm (on an APS-sized sensor). A small tripod would be useful, but not essential.
Please see the different workshops available below:

We'll spend the workshop taking a variety of photos of several locations and subjects. The description 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.
The workshop start time depends on the time of year, and the subjects covered, please see the 'forthcoming workshops' section to confirm the start time for the particular workshop you are interested in. Each workshop starts with a short introduction and explanation of the session, and finishes approximately 4 hours later, 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 London Photography Workshops costs £45 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 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 routes taken are reasonably flat, with just steps up to London Bridge and Tower Bridge if this is included in the workshop. The Tate Modern has some stairs, but also 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.
Send us your questions and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
