Visiting London?

London photography workshops

Do you plan to visit London this year? Why not take some time out to explore the ‘real’ London with a London-based travel photographer? We offer private workshops in London for between 1 and 7 days. These private workshops can be for individuals or small groups of family or friends and are available throughout the year. From a ‘one off’ workshop to a structured development programme – and all points in between – we can work together to elevate your skills as a documentary and travel photographer

We will tailor a workshop to your precise requirements – usually including elements of street, travel and documentary photography. We start the session with a thorough briefing / tutorial over coffee, before hitting the streets to work together to produce some stunning images. We look at techniques for exposure, focusing and composition; learning how to spot an opportunity for a unique picture; story telling; digital workflow; sharing or marketing your work. Most of all, you will discover new ways of telling the story of your travels through great images.

  • Spend the day(s) working closely with Brian Lloyd Duckett, a London-based professional documentary, street and travel photographer

This summer in London I did two workshops with Brian. One was a one to one and the other a group workshop.They were both amazing and beneficial for me in their own way…. Brian is a real gentleman his relaxed easy manner inspires you – he gives you positive feedback and a ton of knowledge to inspire you. I would close my eyes and do a workshop with him weather it is for a beginner or for someone like me who wants to improve their photography.
