London provides photographers with endless opportunities to capture the hustle and bustle of street life, architecture, grand views and unique, unrepeatable little moments in the life of its people. The city never sleeps, and when the day fades away and the lights come on, a whole new world appears – and it brings with it new and exciting opportunities to make interesting photographs.Read More

London provides photographers with endless opportunities to capture the hustle and bustle of street life, architecture, grand views and unique, unrepeatable little moments in the life of its people. The city never sleeps, and when the day fades away and the lights come on, a whole new world appears – and it brings with it new and exciting opportunities to make interesting photographs.
During our workshop, we will explore how London changes when night falls. We will photograph iconic views across the river and will discover how the appearance of some of the city’s most recognisable buildings is transformed when they are lit by artificial light.
Our route, which leads along the southside of the Thames, will provide us with a plethora of subjects. Photographing at lower light levels does not necessarily require shooting with the camera on a tripod, although that will come in handy, on occasion. We will explore ways to utilise the available light to produce images which capture the true character of London at night.
Your guide for the evening will be Astrid, who has spent many years photographing in London using a range of techniques. She will be at hand throughout to help and guide you, whether you are looking for a first introduction or want to delve deeper into low-light photography in the city.
We will grab some refreshments before we start and again along the way on the Southbank. Our group will meet at the Tate Modern at 3.30pm, and the workshop will finish around 9pm near Waterloo Station.
I attended this workshop to expand my knowledge of night photography. We started in the Tate Modern Gallery where tripods weren't allowed, so it was slightly out of my comfort zone. To achieve the correct balance between shutter speed, ISO and aperture created a challenge to achieve a composition that wasn't too noisy. With guided tuition by Astrid we managed to create some good shots. We then walked around the South Bank and used tripods for some landscape shots. Astrid gave good advice and assistance if needed. We ended the session with a mulled wine and discussion about what we had learnt from the course and what our challenges were. I totally recommend this workshop with Astrid as she is very knowledgable and has a great eye for composition.
Very engaging leader who introduced a different perspective to the South Bank. Shared her time equally among the group and alsways on hand to help and support.
Astrid's a great tour leader. Fun, creative, very knowledgeable and helpful.
Had an great evening and would highly recommend. Astrid is a great teacher and has a brilliant knowledge of where to stand to get the best shot.
Excellent - good location. more than enough to photograph and it all went very well. We suffered a bit from the rain, but equally the lowering clouds gave us some wonderful light reflecting off the city. (As long as you didn't point a lens into wind!)
The entire tour was wonderful. Astrid is so knowledgable and helpful, and very patient with all of our questions. The tour was well thought out and flowed well. There were plenty of opportunities to photograph a wide variety of things which will appeal to different photographers’ interests. I would highly recommend it to my friends and will definitely be booking another tour in the future.
