What we're about

Explore Photography is a meetup group for you to learn, shoot and meet others for photography by doing. There is something very real and tangible about actually taking photos and trying techniques rather than reading about it or watching videos. It doesn't matter what camera you have or what skill level you have just come and join us, get started and have fun!

All our workshops are for you and so we value your feedback and input. Please tell us what future workshops and content you are interested in and would like to see and which days/times suit you and we will do our very best to accommodate them.

Thanks, Pete

We will cover these areas and more: how to set up your camera properly to shoot effectively how to choose your settings for success how to get correct exposure every time how to correctly choose a white balance setting how to achieve focus on every shot Its going to be a practical workshop so you will be shooting throughout so that you get plenty of practical experience, with guidance and instruction from me of course. I’ll give you tips and techniques along the way. By the end of the workshop you will be in complete control of your camera leaving you to focus on getting great photos.

Off Camera Flash/Strobist Meet Up

Needs a location

£5.00

Interested in Off Camera Flash/Strobist/lighting & photography? Blow the dust off of your camera and lighting gear.... and join us and get out and shoot! This is a regular monthly meet up for anyone interested in flash photography to meet up and shoot together. It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, all levels are more than welcome. We will go to some interesting locations, try techniques and get some great shots either for your portfolio or just for fun. The meet ups will be speedlight based on location in London. My aim is to create a regular, fun and relaxed meet up for those who are interested in this type of photography like me and want to meet up and shoot together. This is not a 'taught' workshop (my other workshops are), it will be more collaborative and you can practice and learn from each other. Its an opportunity to meet up with likeminded individuals and shoot portraiture with flash. Bring your camera (any brand/type is fine) and if you have them speedlights/modifiers/triggers/etc. If you don’t have any thats fine don’t worry, I’ll bring my speedlights/modifiers/etc., and others bring their own flashes,stands,etc. too. I’m totally open to suggestions/comments/ideas if you have any so please do let me know if you think of something that will help the group. Any questions, just ask. Cheers, Pete
