25th March 2018

Urban sunset architectural photography workshop in Salford Quays.

1 available

Salford Quays and the Media City offers some of the most photogenic opportunities for those who love to photograph architectual images both during the day and at night;. This workshop starts mid afternoon and finished well after sunset giving you plenty of scope to see and shoot this iconic section of Manchester looking at its best.  Both the BBC  and ITV Studios are located there as well as many other buildings and structures such as the hugely impressive Imperial War Museum, Millennium Bridge, the Swing Bridge, the bronze mirrored ‘Gotham styled’ Quay West building, the Lowry Theatre, the University of Salford and the latest building, the golden The Alchemist. bar and restaurant.

The aim of this workshop is to concentrate on architectural form, shapes, patterns and also panoramas of the whole complex while capturing some wonderful light and colour. Long exposure techniques also work very well here as you have an opportunity to smooth out the water of the Manchester canal which surrounds the whole area. I am an official Nisi Filter Promoter and you may see the full range in action if you wish.

*** Please note that I hold a genuine Media Pass that officially permits me to run workshops at Media City as well as seeking official permission from the Imperial War Museum that allows me/my clients to photograph the building from within the grounds ***
