Urban Photography Workshop – Waterloo to Liverpool Street station
Waterloo and the South Bank
This Urban photography workshop is tailored for individuals who want to grow their photographic skills while being out and about in a large city. We’ll meet up near Waterloo station for coffee and a chat to discuss your expectations of the session. I’ll also brief you on the basic ethics of the genre and what you should and shouldn’t do while we are out there.
Once that’s done, we’ll start with a quick walk through Leake Street to have a look at what street art is there, then head to the Thames River, where we’ll follow in an easterly direction, taking in some of the touristy landmarks either side of the river. While the landmarks themselves might not be your thing, there are hundreds of people milling around, which makes for good urban photography.
The aim is to cross the river just before or actually use Tower Bridge if we can. This section of the route may vary depending on the time of day or the angle of the sun. We’ll spend time here photographing cityscapes up and down the river, plus all the people walking around. Again, there are many London landmarks here to photograph if you choose before we head into the city.
Old Spitalfields Market, Bricklane and Liverpool Street station
This area offers something totally different to test your creativity. Having moved away from the more open expanse of the Thames, you enter the wonders of the narrow streets of London. Crossing through Whitechapel, Spitalfields and Bricklane, we zig-zag along the alleyways depending on what we encounter.
The rich sights and smells of Bricklane will wash over you as your photographic creativity is pushed to new levels. One of the goals of this session is to make you comfortable with taking images in a bustling area which will allow you to take photos in any city in the world.

City walking – Fair to good health. There will be stairs, cobbled stones and loads of crossing busy streets to get that photo we see. We’ll be walking for around 4 hours, maybe more, but we’ll stop for a coffee here and there if when we see a quaint place.
