In this 2 hour workshop, we will begin by briefly uncovering the style's and techniques of some of the most famous night time photographers and explore the history of Soho and its night life culture. We will identify what you are looking to capture, outlining key tips and skills for shooting portraits at night and do a few demos together. You will then dive into capturing your own portraits! all within a small area around Soho. This can be alone or in pairs and half way through we will all meet.This will give you the chance to ask questions, share work with others, before taking your new found energy back into the streets! At the end, we will all gather again for a drink and a summary of what we have learnt, hopefully enjoying the mystery and fun of Soho night life through pictures.
I'm a Portrait Photographer whose worked in the field for several years, specialising in Street Portraiture. I've had my work featured in several places, including 'British Journal of Photographys' nationwide exhibition 'Portraits of Britain'. My solo show is currently being exhibited in London at The Observatory Gallery and was recently listed on World Photo Organisation as '12 exhibitions not to miss in London this summer'. Night time portraits are my passion and I love sharing the mystery and intrigue of capturing portraits at night with other people.
We will begin at Bar Italia, one of the oldest coffee shops in London, before setting out on to the main streets in Soho to establish spots to shoot at. We will re meet back at a different location (subject to weather conditions) and at the end share a drink at the French House, another famous Soho establishment.
