Bristol Harbourside - Creative Photography Workshop

Approximately - Loading...
Slap bang in the centre of Bristol, and only 10 miles from the sea, lies an enchanted watery kingdom. Once one of Britain’s busiest ports, Bristol’s “Floating Harbour” covers an area of 72 acres - much of it the paraphernalia of heavy industry long since forgotten, such as steam cranes and warehouses - surrounded on all sides by a hubbub of busy cafés, restaurants, art galleries, boats, barges and museums. Cut adrift from the River Avon and its tides by lock gates at both ends, the area is an oasis of colour and vitality - a fascinating place to spend time with a camera.
Our workshop will concentrate on developing our skills in what are often referred to as “Creative Photography” techniques, in particular Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and In Camera Multiple Exposures. Your guide for the day, Bill, has been a leading practitioner of both for over a decade, and is a regular writer/contributor for the worldwide ICM Photography Magazine.

Bristol Harbourside Photography Workshop
The canvas for one of the country’s most innovative engineers, Isambard Kingdom Brunel (he built and launched the SS Great Britain from here), and home to numerous leading-edge artists both visual and musical (Banksy, Massive Attack et al), this juxtaposition of old and new makes it the perfect place to experiment photographically.
With this in mind, our workshop will concentrate on developing our skills in what are often referred to as “Creative Photography” techniques, in particular Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and In Camera Multiple Exposures. Your guide for the day, Bill, has been a leading practitioner of both for over a decade, and is a regular writer/contributor for the worldwide ICM Photography Magazine. He’s particularly evangelical about their ability to get right under the skin of a place, a time, a feeling, and reveal their very essence.
An actor by training, Bill is well versed in the creative process, the benefits of working with an open mind, the joy of improvising and going with what you’re given. He’s particularly interested in working on the fly: staying in the moment, seeing what comes up on the back of the camera, and using it as a springboard for an unknown destination.
This workshop is limited to 6 participants only, and will run from 10am to 5pm.
