Travel photographer Lottie Davies will talk about her work around the globe, from the Arctic to Africa and a few countries in between, and then lead a practical workshop capturing the people and places of Hull. Practical tips and a group review of work will be included.
This workshop will enable you to look around yourself at the world in a new way, expanding your visual story-telling. Communicating the sense of being in an exciting and vibrant place, surrounded by interesting characters, fascinating history and traditions as well as contemporary locations, and inviting others to visit it too, is what travel photography is all about. Come and tell your own story of Hull through your photographs.
Some outdoor photography so please dress for the weather. Level: Some photography experience an advantage.
