Secret London - Gaslights & Alleyways Workshop



Pick up from Kings Cross Station at 21:00 hrs and Finish at 06:00 hrs the next morning.


I am pleased to be able to confirm that we have a new date for this very popular workshop: Secret London - 'Gaslights & Alleyways', I am also very pleased that we have managed to keep the price the same too!

I am delighted to be teaming up with renowned photographer and good friend Doug Chinnery to offer our ‘Secret London - Gaslights & Alleyways’ Workshop on FRIDAY 19th January 2018. 

If you would like to shoot Urban Nocturne images of a London seldom seen, then you’ll love this workshop!

Two leaders, myself and Doug and two black cabs, driven by Terry and Bobby who are both keen photographers, will drive us to some of our favourite locations at the dead of night. This is not a tour of the classic London sites but something very different…expect plenty of dark, eerie alleyways, gaslights and cobbled streets, a secret London that evokes atmosphere and a sense of foreboding.


Doug and I will be on hand all through the night to help you get to grips with this specialist genre of photography and demystify the techniques involved and help you bag some fantastic images. Terry and Bobby will effortlessly transport us around all night in their iconic black cabs leaving us as much time as you need at each location to hone your skills.

So, all you have to worry about is taking fantastic images all night! We will of course be making a couple of stops for some well deserved refreshments.

This workshop is aimed at photographers of all abilities and levels from enthusiast beginners to established pros.

Everything is in place for an awesome night; I hope you can join us.

Included: Tuition from Doug Chinnery and Charlotte Gilliatt. All transport throughout the night.

Excluded: Insurance and Refreshments

Fitness Level - Easy  Most locations are arrived at by vehicle with minimal walking. However, we may encounter some uneven surfaces. Terrain is paved streets and cobbled alleys.

Thanks for a fantastic course-  one of the most enjoyable I have ever attended.   I loved the locations.  It must have taken some time to find them all.  I have not done much night photography in the past and now I cannot understand why not.  It has a certain magic and simplicity that i really like and I know I have to do more!   My aims for the course were to get to grips with night photography and have one image I really liked.  Amazingly, for me, I have a number of keepers.  Of course, this might be more to do with your excellent locations than my skills!

Thanks for the feedback Charlotte. Really enjoyed the workshop. The images would not be there if you and Doug hadn’t offered your great advice and taken us to some superb locations. Must do it again some time.

Thank you both so much for such a fun night in London on Friday/Saturday. The organisation was faultless. I love trying different things and this certainly took me out of my comfort zone. The locations were amazing and so atmospheric; I just hope my images can do them justice.

Charlotte, thanks to you and Doug for a truly amazing night on the town! The locations were fantastic. Exceeded my already high, expectations! Everything about the night was well thought out and it was great to have a short break in the small hours.

I shall certainly recommend the workshop to my pals and to camera club folk.

I was really pleased with the photos and enjoyed the whole experience.

Thanks again to you both Katrina
