Whether you’re a tourist on a first trip to London or a local Londoner, this photography workshop is a great way to improve your photography while exploring the Southbank’s magic. This location offers some amazing photographic opportunities - from London’s iconic buildings like the London Eye, the Millennium Bridge, Big Ben, and St. Paul’s Cathedral, to the bird life on the Thames, and the interesting shades and reflections created by city life. Annabel, who has lived in London for over twenty years, will take you to the very best (and some of them rather secret) spots to get the most interesting angles.
This photography workshop is a relaxed walk that will allow you to improve your photography skills as you are capturing London’s charm. Professional photographer Annabel Vere will guide you to the best locations, advise you on the best techniques and angles, and answer any questions you may have. As you are photographing, Annabel will run you through the following photography essentials:
- original composition
- use of light
- use of reflections
- getting the right angle
This workshop is suitable for photographers of all levels!
You will meet Annabel and the other participants at 2 pm just outside of Embankment tube station (the Thames exit). After a brief introductory chat, you will cross the Thames towards the Southbank, where you will start photographing what's happening around you. At a leisurely pace, you will make our way to the Millennium Bridge, the London Eye, and to a secret beach with views of St Paul's Cathedral and London Thames bird life. While you are capturing the exciting views, Annabel will share some her professional knowledge on composition, panning, use of light, and use of angles and reflections, so that you can put her advice into practice straight away. After a 3,5 hour photography session, you will sit down for a drink at Tate Modern's cafe (which has stunning views) to look at and review everyone's images.
