Led by acclaimed architectural photographer Grant Smith — member of world-famous architecture imaging agency VIEW — this mid-morning walking tour will examine different ways of observing and photographing the City of London’s ever-changing built environment.
The tour will cover a range of core skills and topics — including the optimum time of day to photograph the Square Mile’s buildings and monuments as well as photographers' rights to create images in public. By the end of this event, participants will be able to confidently identify the City’s various enigmatic architectural styles and will have discovered the key approaches to creating high-quality, thought-provoking architectural photography.
