WHY A GUIDED PHOTOGRAPHIC WALK ???
Whats the difference between normal guided walks & our photographers guided walk ? TIME & TUITION - PERSPECTIVE & PACE - TOTALLY DIFFERENT ! Photographers are often regarded as a nuisance in a group on a normal guided walk, delaying the group - We end up missing & rushing shots to keep up or getting lost or can't keep up ! Our walks & workshops are specifically designed for photographers, the observations, the content is a mix of photographic without you missing out on the historical or cultural context - the pace & length of walk is about an hour longer than regular walks - so allow around 3 hours .
The photography meetup usually starts at a designated location and almost always finishes up at the local pub over a drink or a restaurant for a discussion about the days event and photography. Post the event load your images up for feedback that is helpful & constructive.
.With a forever developing choice of fascinating photo walks from Karl Marx to Jack The Ripper to Big Cats ... it's here.
Please join in the fun.
