Location Photography Masterclass

Students will have access to some spaces which are not often open to visitors and the shoot will be set in the context of the Cathedral’s long and eventful history.

The masterclass is led by experienced photographer, curator and tutor, Adrian Stone. Adrian has been both the Curator and Education Officer at The Photographic Angle, a national photographic charity. He has taught at City College Peterborough for five years and judges, lectures and runs photograpy workshops in the East and South East.

The shape of the session will be broadly as follows:

Welcome and introduction

Lunch (not included) in local café and opportunity to share photographic knowledge and ideas.

Tour of less often visited spaces within the Cathedral and more opportunities for photography and development of technique.

Summary and feedback. Next steps in photography.
