Manchester Urban Photography Workshop

I will be leading urban and cityscape photography workshops in Manchester city centre this March (2022). To see the sorts of images you will be able to achieve please peruse the galleries below:

Straight shots        Creative shots


There will be a maximum of four attendees at each workshop, in order to ensure plenty of access to each shooting spot and to make sure you get as much guidance from me as you want. I can also model in some of the shots if so desired (you can see me in some of the images in the creative gallery, wearing a black jacket and blue shirt).

Manchester is a major city with lots of potential for interesting and arresting photography. I have been creating Manchester-based city images for several years, both 'straight' (although often with alteration of colours in post processing) and creative (using intentional camera movement and/or multiple exposure).


In the workshops we can focus on straight or creative styles (or both) depending on the interests of the attendees. We will also shoot both during daylight and night time to get a wide variety of light and colour conditions.


The day will begin at 12 noon and run until 8.30 with a break for drinks/food about half way (at a cafe/restaurant to be agreed). In case of poor weather we will reschedule; however a small amount of rain is a good thing as it allows reflections!



I will also provide a 2-hour post processing tuition via Zoom at a mutually convenient time and date. This will cover both straight and creative image processing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

What You Will Need

1. Camera

2. Tripod

3. Medium range lens (I use my 18-55mm lens on a crop sensor camera - on a full frame something like a 24-70 would be suitable).

4. Wide angle lens (I use an 11-16mm lens) - useful for some of the shots

5. Knowledge of how to use/alter camera settings, e.g. mode, manual/autofocus, ISO, aperture, focal length, live view, white balance, exposure delay, exposure compensation

Testimonials (from macro workshops)

'Having seen the results that Tony achieves I decided to sign up on one of his macro courses. I did the pre shoot, shoot and post shoot processing sections each of which I found most helpful and rewarding.

I am confident that going forward I will be able to apply the skills and techniques learned to have a positive impact on my macro work. Tony is easy to get on with and generous in sharing his knowledge and techniques. I would recommend anyone to give it a go.'

- Steve Hitchen 

'Having seen Tony’s work with butterflies etc, I have been waiting to get out for a while but been spoiled by the weather. However, I finally got out and spent some quality time with him explaining the techniques used in finding, isolating and having the set-up ready to take the picture in the best possible position. I now have that understanding that I can also take into the field to try and achieve the same level and quality of the images Tony produces.'
