London PhotoWalk Feb 19th, 2011

0Comments

Sprayin'***UPDATE*** This awesome news just in! BlackRapid have just signed on as one of our official walk partners! That means that we’re going to have the entire range of BlackRapid straps on hand to give away to a number of very lucky walkers! Check out their range!

Digital Photography School and Think Tank Photo are holding a joint photowalk in London City on the 19th of February, 2011. It will start at Liverpool Street Station, walking out at 3pm (on the dot) following a route down and across the city for some large steel structures and glass, then taking in Brick Lane for some grit and interest, circling around and about and ending back at Liverpool Street tube station (or close to it) at a public house for a drink and to crown the competition winners.

Think Tank Photo have kindly provided us with three camera bags from their belt pack range, the SpeedDemon, SpeedFreak and SpeedRacer These will be given to the winners on the day! (details to follow!)

captions, please?

The Map isn’t totally 100% finalised, but I wanted to get a notification up to let people know this was happening and to clear their calendar! The plan will be to meet from 14:30 on Saturday Feb 19th at Liverpool Street Station with a view to leaving at 15:00hrs on our walk, we’ll be walking, chatting and taking photos for about two and a half hours, so not tooo long! Then we’ll all head back to a venue (I’ve yet to 100% confirm this, but working on it) to have a refreshing beverage and a yarn about all things photo.

There is a thread in the dPS Flickr Group where you can also post your images and we would love for you to post one in the photowalk thread that will be in the forums after the walk!

The walk is open to all levels, from people with point and shoots to dSLR cameras to iPhones or a dusty polaroid that your grandpa gave you (I’ll be bringing my INSTAX 210) there’s only one requirement, and that’s that you come along and have fun!

A few simple house keeping rules for you. Please, no unattended children as I can’t watch them all 100% of the time. Please ask me any questions you have now, via email below. Please do note that dPS nor Think Tank Photo can be held responsible for you or your gear whilst on this walk, so whilst we take every precaution not to lose anyone or their camera (I’ve not lost one yet!) that if this does happen, we’re *very* sorry.

If you have any questions, please comment below or contact me directly via this email address —> simon@digital-photography-school.com

Who is your walk leader? Me! –Simon Pollock. I’m the dPS community manager, a music photographer based in London. I’ve led photowalks previous to this one (Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk) and will be on hand the whole time to answer any questions you have.

Please fill in the form below to confirm your attendance! This is going to be fun!

  • great 🙂

    isnt 3 pm a bit late for sun .. for people like me with P&S that averagely works in low light 🙂

  • Tim

    Great day for a photo walk as it corresponds to 50 images with a 50mm on day 50 (of the year).

  • Seriously tempted as I live two minutes walk from a railway station than connects directly with Liverpool Street!

  • joanne paktsun

    Hi, is there a fee for this walk or is it free? and what do i need to bring along? sorry never been before. thanks

  • @Asma: Sunset on 19th Feb is 5:22pm

  • Steve – see you there 🙂

    Asma – I had to do my best to please everyone, getting in to London for the morning would have been restrictive for some people from ‘up country’ –I hope there’s enough light to go around on the day :-0)

    Tim – thanks for pointing that out!

    –Sime

  • Diane

    Hi,

    Is there a charge? Never been on a photowalk before!

  • Sime

    Di, no. Only what you spend for food or drink on the day (if anything, your choice) — sime

  • Alex Buckingham

    Hi Sime

    Count me in. And the wife! The reg form wouldn’t work for me for some reason…

    We’re about a half hour outside of London up the Marylebone train line, so not a million miles.

    Cheers, Alex.

  • Ismail

    Hi!
    I’m new to photography so I’ll be coming along!

    Ismail

  • Count me in as well!

  • Dan

    Sweet! I think I can make this one! Almost exactly a year on when I started looking at photowalks in London with members from DPS, but never got round to it 🙂

    See y’all there

    Dan

    PS: I’m itching to do a really late night/early morning nightwalk in London, anybody with similar urges, do get in touch!

  • will be coming out from san diego, ca for this. haha, i’m actually on vacation in europe this month and *just so happens* that I will be in London 18-21! What are the odds?

    Looking forward to this!

  • Chris Bennett

    I’ve worked in the city for donkey’s years and there’s so much to see around here that we’ll probably not move very far.

    Simon I hope you’ve got some definite plans on where to go. The Gherkin, Lloyds building, Leadenhall market, Liverpool Street station itself, Broadgate, Spitalfields, Brick Lane are all on the doorstep and good subjects

    And some of them look good as dusk comes on too

  • Looking forward to it. I do music photography as well and am using a Canon EOS 400D with a Tamron 18-250 lens, which I will be bringing on the day… I would love some tips to get the best out of my camera from someone in the same field. I’ll be off to a gig that night 🙂

  • Kata

    Hi,
    I will be there with my boyfriend. 🙂 cant wait for it.

  • Chris

    Sounds like fun. I’ll be coming from South Glos. Driving to the outskirts then tubing it. Hope you won’t mind answering lots of questions from an enthusiastic amateur trying to get off the auto settings.

  • Shiam wilcox

    Hi me and my fella well up for it. Just happen to be in London that day anyway so serendipitous. Form didn’t work for us either
    see you then can’t wait!

  • I live at walking distance from Liverpool Street, so count me in! 😀
    Do we have a theme for the photowalk/competition or is just whatever captures our eye?

  • rachael white

    hey, im a student from lincoln university and theres a few of us coming to this, im also holding a meeting tomorrow to see if anybody else is interested, so any other details about the map or anything would be great! 🙂 Thanks, Rach

  • Brilliant Idea! Count me in!

  • Amy

    Hi,

    I would love to come along but unfortunately am working that weekend so please let me know when the next one will be!

    Thanks,

    Amy

  • This sounds ace. Been wanting to do something like this for a while. I’ll be along with myself 🙂

  • Donna McMahon

    Hi, I will be attending and bringing 2 friends. Looking forward to it.

  • It sounds great! I will be there.

  • I’m really excited by this opportunity to meet fellow photographers and hope you don’t mind another amateur asking a few questions along the way?

  • mike

  • mike

    Just one more question – whereabouts do we meet? front, back, Maccy D’s……………or is it red carnation on left lapel 🙂

  • Sime

  • Mike Woodhouse

    I’ve signed up above but I’m uncomfortably aware of the weather forecast, which has at least improved from “heavy” to “light” rain snice last night. If it’s looking like being cold and wet then I’ll probably wimp out, citing the need to protect my 11 year-old daughter and my shiny new 7D…

  • Michael

    I will be in London, April 8-15. Is it possible that there might be a “London Walk” during that week?

  • Haroon

    count me in, but not sure about the weather…

  • sophia

    hey a walk in april would be awesome!! i will be in london 9-18 april

    Any walks scheduled for May? I will be there mid May.
