Get to know your camera and join us as we go on a walk around London’s Soho neighbourhood and take some shots of its unique character. Led by Park Cameras tutor Steve Marley, he’ll share a variety of tips and tricks to help you get some fantastic images and help you look at the streets of London from a different perspective. This photo walk is suitable for all skill levels.
Starting at Park Cameras in Rathbone Place (just off Oxford Street – W1T 1JR) at 10.30am, participants will head to the nearby area of Soho, situated in the heart of London’s West End. This area is often full of interesting characters to take photos of, as well as a varied amount of architecture.
From there, participants will head to nearby Chinatown with a range of colourful shop fronts, street signs and more! We’ll explore the people places and architecture of this famous area of London and help you to capture some great photos.
Time/weather permitting, the group may head onto the Trafalgar Square region of London, capturing the vibrant street life of around the square before returning to the Park Cameras London Store at around 1 pm
The photo walk will head back to Park Cameras with the chance to look back at the shots taken on the walk.
This walk will be at a leisurely pace and is mainly on the level ground. There will be plenty of time allowed for you to get your shots. At the start of the walk, you’ll be given a map and directions, as well as details for the photo walk leader.
On the walk, we recommend you bring a camera (compact, mirrorless or DSLR), a wide-angle, standard zoom and telephoto lens if you have them (don’t worry if you only own one lens).
It is also advisable to bring a bottle of water, as well as a waterproof coat and/or umbrella should the weather conditions be wet. If conditions are wet, the photo walk leader may adjust the route to allow shots from sheltered locations.
Please note that you will receive an email from us a day or two before the event with full meeting point instructions and suggestions on what to bring with you.
We will cover camera settings ( apertures, shutter speeds, ISO, white balance, focus and drive modes) as well as help with finding subjects and composition.
We recommend a DSLR or Mirrorless camera with a wide angle, standard and telephoto lens and/or a zoom lens. Do not bring a tripod and flash is not required.
