Wex Walkabout: Architectural Photography with Richard Southall

  • Days: 1

Wex Walkabout: Architectural Photography with Richard Southall
Meeting at: Wex Photo Video Birmingham
Thursday 28th June 2018, 10am-1pm, OR 2pm-5pm.
Tickets £15 per person.

Join us on 28th June for a photo walk dedicated to capturing the diverse architecture in the city of Birmingham. We will be meeting at our Birmingham store, and heading over to Millennium Point, taking shots along the way. This will give us the opportunity to shoot a broad range of styles of modern architecture.

Richard will cover the following areas:

  • The basic requirements of shooting successful architectural photography
  • Selecting the appropriate time of day for shooting
  • Colour management
  • Choice of equipment, and understanding shift/pc lenses
  • Norms and rules of architectural photography including gaining authorised access to sites.

 In terms of kit, we recommend bringing:

  • Your DSLR or CSC
  • A wide angle lens
  • A telephoto lens
  • A tripod
  • A fully charged and spare battery
  • Plenty of memory
  • And, of course, your ticket!

Please wear sturdy / comfortable shoes as the walk will last three hours. Please also bring with you any refreshments you will need for the duration of your selected walk.

We look forward to seeing you there!

What is a Walkabout?

Walkabouts offer you the opportunity to get out and about with your camera, meet up with your local photographic community and learn a few new skills whilst you’re at it. Every month, the Wex team will be at a new venue with a different lead photographer, focusing on a different subject with a unique set of challenges. Walkabouts are all about enjoying and developing your photographic hobby in a relaxed, informal environment.

Unlike our photography workshops, Wex Walkabouts are completely informal, have no minimum group size and are not dependent on your ability or gear – wherever possible, we will bring along a range of kit you can borrow. All you need is your DSLR or compact system camera and some clothing suitable for the great outdoors. There are no specific steps or learning outcomes; the walkabouts will give you the challenge of a new environment and a new subject, all supported by an experienced pro photographer.

Regardless of your skill level or kit, Wex Walkabouts are for you – whether you want to try something new or just meet other likeminded enthusiasts!

In 2018 a minimum of £5 from every ticket will be donated to our chosen charity of the year. This ticket price also covers any entry fees for the sites we visit as part of our Walkabouts. If you’d like to know more about this or our chosen charity, please don’t hesitate to email events@wex.co.uk
