Iconic London…all through the night….

Where better to learn how to capture stunning night images than the streets of London?

I am delighted to be teaming up with renowned photographer, Light & Land leader and good friend Terry Gibbins to offer our Classic London Night Photography Workshop.

With world famous, iconic architecture …the old and the new nestled side by side in seamless harmony…London, quite simply is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet and we are very fortunate to have a plethora of some of the world’s most photogenic urban landscapes all within easy reach.

Join Terry and I for a night of image making at some of the Capital’s best loved locations. Whether this is your first visit to London or you’re an established local…we’ll take you to the best places from sunset to sunrise.

Both Terry and I will be on hand throughout the night to help you capture those magical views and show you how to get to grips with the basics of urban night photography. We will have plenty of time at each location for you to hone your skills and gain confidence with your camera and settings.For this workshop, we pick you up from London Liverpool Street Station a couple of hours before sunset.  In the morning we will be able to drop you off at either LLS or Waterloo Station. 

Transported in style with our very own iconic black cabs, the night is packed with some new and exciting locations as well as a few old favourites to keep you shooting for hours….10 - 12 hours to be precise! But don’t worry, we’ll manage a few well earned pit stops for some much needed refreshments along the way.

All of our workshops and tours are suitable for complete beginners right through to seasoned professionals. We advise Digital or Film equipment to be the most suitable medium for our night photography workshops. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries regarding kit.

Thank you for an excellent workshop.

The locations were great and the experience of travelling in the taxis together with the exceptional choice of venue for breakfast made this a memorable experience.

I would like to thank you both for the unobtrusive way that you lead the workshop - but are easily accessible with help and tips. It was my first experience of light tracing - I had never had the confidence to try.
I am really happy with the image of the train light trace and now have the confidence to try more. I also appreciate the tips on framing compositions to leave space for them to breath.

Hi Charlotte,

Many thanks for a great night of photography. The locations were superb and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Very well organised and never felt rushed.

Please pass on my thanks to Terry as well.

I attended the last Classic London at Night workshop of the summer (Friday 27th July) as a hobbyist/enthusiast with an interest in photographing the city at night. This is an extremely enjoyable workshop to attend and I cannot thank Charlotte and Terry enough for their patience and guidance throughout. The course will gift anyone the ability and confidence to compose and view landscape and cityscape photographs with greater creative vision. Charlotte and Terry also provided an abundance of practical advice related to techniques and how to use my camera and lens set more appropriately for the purposes of getting the images that I wish to have. The images created by previous attendees was an inspiration for me to attend and I hope that this review will encourage another person to do the same in the future.
