Join Michael Eleftheriades and myself for the first of my flexible London architecture walking tours, capturing the very best of London's incredible architecture. Everything from steel and glass to historical architecture, based in the heart of the city for the very best access to some of London's true photographic icons.
You don't have to be an architectural photographer to enjoy the incredible potential of London's built environment. You're in safe hands with Michael and I - we will train you to shoot the very best that London has to offer without needing specialist architecture lenses. Michael is the Nikon Owner London Group Coordinator, and has worked in the architectural profession for over 30 years, giving him an intimate knowledge of London's building scape.
We will base the tour around walking and taking public transport to key locations, to get the very best compositions. Transportation is every complex in London, so the underground is by far the best way to get around. We will be taking regular breaks with well-deserved rest in coffee shops so we dont exhaust ourselves - the days will be long but the rewards will make it all worthwhile.
With everything from modern glass and steel, to historical architecture, from tower blocks to staircases, this trip will take in the very best of London, in the best light with the best tuition.
After all the complications with COVID-19, I’ve decided to run a series of UK photographic tours with a potentially flexible date. The concept is that the date will remain flexible, should there be any further unforeseen travel restrictions, the tour can be postponed to a later date if restrictions are imposed and you can also leave the tour for a full refund if you are not happy to attend. I am making these tours so we can have fun, that’s literally it.
The accommodation is for one night. I cannot get full bookings finalised as of this time, but we will be centrally located in quality accommodation, yet to be announced. It will be Premier Inn style with great access to all the tour locations.
Yes you can. If you are are not comfortable with being in a hotel with the group, you can make your own arrangements. I can reduce the amount of the tour to an appropriate reduction.
It is essential that you have had your first Covid vaccination. You will need to have taken a negative lateral flow test taken 24hrs before the tour commences to ensure the safety of the group. You will need a face mask where required.
The meeting place will be at the accommodation (yet to be announced) at 11am on Monday 19th July 2021.
You need to be capable of walking for sustained periods, along footpaths and up moderate inclines. There will be no strenuous activity but it is advised that you take walks before the trips so you can cope with two days of photography.
We will only be shooting sunsets. It’s extremely strenuous to be up for doing photography at this time of year, so I want everyone to enjoy the experience, not turn it into a gruelling Boot Camp. It’s important to get rest and we can do a great deal with lowlight and twilight.
Ensure you bring good quality footwear. Light and extremely comfortable footwear is essential as we will be walking on concrete and tarmac, climbing stairs and escalators and taking the Underground on a regular basis. Bring a lightweight waterproof and quality walking trousers.
An array of focal lengths will always benefit the London photographer. A wide angle lens (16-35), medium zoom (24-70) and a longer zoom (70-300) will be ideal to cover most compositional eventualities. I also recommend a fisheye lens and a 24mm Tilt Shift lens, but neither are essential.
Although not essential, its a great idea to bring a laptop computer with you so you can discuss imagery with myself and others in the group. It really is a great learning experience, so I highly recommend bringing a laptop to learn and for personal entertainment.
I make a point of tutoring all my clients on digital photography to help complete the learning process. I am renowned as a leading digital professional and an Adobe Influencer and I will be screen recording my sessions so the learning continues. I have extensive knowledge to communicate on all levels and I spend time with all my clients helping them to process their images to a high standard. It really helps to have a computer session when tiredness takes hold, or inclement weather persists.
