LONDON PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Matthew offers evening, full day and weekend photography courses in London, teaching the art of landscape, travel and destination photography at some of London’s most iconic locations.
Matthew’s photography workshops are about learning, practising and experimenting with newly learned techniques, tips and tricks, while exploring a destination. Time spent flicking through slides indoors will be kept to an absolute minimum!
During the photography workshop, Matthew will nurture your photographic eye, help you develop a proactive photography mindset and ensure you understand how to apply your new found skills to any given situation you find yourself in when photographing in the future.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Courses can be run if you are a beginner, enthusiast or intermediate photographer, as well if you are looking to make the jump into doing photography full time. If you love taking photos, but would like to understand how to control your camera in order to produce the photos that you have in your mind’s eye, then get in touch. A small amount of tuition targeted at your particular interests will give you the guidance you need to take your photography to the next level. Example subjects include:
- Aperture and depth of field
- Shutter speeds – understanding and creative uses
- Using manual settings
- Shooting on aperture priority mode
- Compositional techniques and ideas
- Making the most of available light
- Building a portfolio
- Finding your first clients
- Selecting the most appropriate equipment
While the majority of these courses are taught in the field, the first part of each session is in a cafe. This offers a comfortable environment, where you will learn about the fundamentals of photography, receive advice on what to look out for during your session, and ensure you get to know how to use your camera thoroughly. The rest of the workshop is spent teaching ‘in the field’ tutorials, allowing you to capture exciting photographs at the same time as learning about how to approach photographing a new subject, how and when to use new techniques, and finding out more about the subjects mentioned in the list above. Finally, courses always end with a sunset and night time shoot, ensuring you come away with a variety of images that you will be proud of.
