itness Level Required - Moderate

This trip is rated as moderate, meaning that most people with average fitness should comfortably be able to deal with the 30min - 60min walk and frequent steps or gradients involved and standing in the river or on the bankside

Experience Level - Beginner

  • The class and workshop are suitable for any level, including beginners. Ideally you will understand exposure, aperture and be shooting in Aperture Priority or Manual Exposure mode.

  • All participants receive 1-2-1 tuition and support on practical workshops so that tutoring can be tailored to the individuals needs and experience.

  • You will be provided an electronic guide beforehand to set your camera up in preparation and ensure you have everything required

Equipment for this workshop

What to bring:

  • Your camera, fully charged battery and spare battery if you have one.

  • Remote Release Cable to take/time shots without touching the camera.

  • Wide angle (10-24mm) is good for framing large vista’s and architecture. A zoom with any range between 24-200mm is good for isolating details at distance if required.

  • Tripod (essential) I can hire you one for the session at the cost of £10 but let me know in advance if you want one.

  • Sensible footwear – it can sometimes be muddy and sticky underfoot so walking boots or wellies with good grip are recommended.

  • A large sandwich bag and an elastic band to wrap around your camera and lens if we have light rain

  • Water, snacks or whatever you need for the event duration

  • Raincoats or equivalent – we might catch a shower!

If you have any specific questions regarding equipment please contact me directly or take a look at my recommended products page.
