Our London photography workshop 'When Night Falls' will take place in December with Astrid McGechan. 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.

London Photography Workshop - London at Night Photography
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 at dusk, 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 there are more opportunities again along the way on the Southbank. Our group will meet at the Tate Modern at 3pm, and the workshop will finish around 9pm near Waterloo Station.
Astrid was very helpful during the workshop, making suggestions for different types of images. Her comments on images after the event were particularly useful.
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 as
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.
It would have been better if we had started earlier and enjoyed the late afternoon turning to dusk and then night. But, as ever, Astrid was a terrific teacher, and particularly patient with, and helpful to me.
Very educational workshop. Plenty of opportunities to take images using varying photography techniques, both new and old to me. Astrid, our workshop leader very informative and helpful
Excellent opportunities, leadership and advice.
Enjoyable and Astrid was helpful, but extremely expensive for what amounted to a routine photowalk.
Met at the Tate and wended our way to the Hungerford Bridge, stopping at the Millennium Bridge, behind the OXO tower, Blackfriars, the NT and the skate boarders, each presenting their own low light,challenges. The workshop was a great chance to play and explore new creative and technical situations. Recognise that you are not going to win any prizes and it’s liberating. Astrid provided lots of tips and advice and I started seeing things in a new way. A great afternoon and evening.
