Frequently Asked Questions
What camera do I need?
Anything at all with which you can capture an image and a camera that you are comfortable using. This could be a mobile phone, compact, film or DSLR camera. It is important that you are competent with the basic functions of your camera.
What do I need to bring?
Yourself, your chosen camera (and lens), spare batteries, enough film or memory card capacity, comfortable clothes, suitable shoes and some spare cash for food and drinks. It would be a good idea to travel as light as possible.
What is the best lens to bring?
A 50mm or equivalent lens would be perfect and anything from 24mm to 85mm is a solid choice. I don’t recommend bringing telephoto or telephoto zoom lenses. The aim is to build confidence and to get you close into the scene, to feel the story and then capture the story.
Will there be a lot of walking?
Yes. This is a full day workshop on the city streets however there are plenty of places to take the weight off for a moment if need be.
What if it is raining?
We keep shooting and carry on. Rain, snow, wind and all things in between make for excellent street photography opportunities. Just make sure that you and your gear are adequately protected from the elements. A lightweight lens and camera are great for shooting one-handed if you need to hold an umbrella in the other hand.
Are there any other costs?
You will get a free tea or coffee to start the day but will need to cover the cost of your own lunch and further refreshments. There may be an occasional fee for public transport to another location, such as the subway, but the cost will be minimal.
Can I get one-to-one tuition?
Absolutely. This will be completely separate from the group workshops and will be catered to your personal objectives and artistic needs. Just get in touch.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
The minimum age for attendees is 18 years old.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Contact by email: [email protected]
What's the refund policy?
Cancellations up to 14 days before the course date will be refunded in full.
Cancellations after 14 days before the course date will be partially refunded by 50% of the course fee.
Cancellations after 7 days before the course date will only be refunded under exceptional circumstances.
In the unlikely event that the course is cancelled, you will be offered a full refund or an alternative booking on another suitable date.
We look forward to seeing you
Remember that this is an outdoor course in a public space. You are responsible for your own conduct and safety at all times.
The Street Photography Workshop is a fantastic opportunity to expand your creative photographic journey and to meet other photographers. We very much look forward to meeting you and sharing the day of photography in the heart of the city.

An evening with Alan Hinkes OBE – the first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s highest mountains.
This autumn, join Fjӓllrӓven and Ellis Brigham at a series of adventure-filled talks from renowned mountaineer, Alan Hinkes OBE.

Boasting an extraordinary mountaineering track record, Alan’s frank and humorous accounts make any of his talks a must-see for keen outdoor-enthusiasts.
The talks in this series will cover many of his best-known expeditions including his numerous trips climbing in the Himalaya (as portrayed in his recent book ‘8000 Metres: Climbing the World’s Highest Mountains’).
As well as personal accounts about his career climbing in the Himalaya, what drove him to climb all 14 ‘8000ers’ and the challenges he faced, Alan will also touch upon his other passions. These include the UK’s hills and mountains, real ale and photography. Alan is a a fountain of outdoor knowledge and these talks will be a don’t-miss event for any lover of walking, mountaineering, climbing or travel.

About the Food Teachers Centre
FOOD TEACHER CENTRE is a UK based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.
The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.
The Centre utilises new technologies, not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for.
The Food Teachers Centre is a place of
creative and innovative ideas and action
learning and sharing

Join me for a photography workshop, where you'll learn how to take photographs in the dark, around London, in the run-up to Christmas. If you've ever fancied giving night photography a go, this is the perfect introduction.
This event is suitable for absolute beginners, but also for experienced photographers who have yet to take the step into manual mode. There'll be plenty of opportunities to practice, under expert supervision.
We'll meet in a central location. You'll need to provide your own camera, ideally a DSLR or CSC, although bridge cameras are also suitable. You'll also need a tripod.
Numbers are restricted to 10 photographers, so that you get plenty of individual support.
Please note that in order to keep prices down, bookings are non-refundable if you're unable to come (but it may possible to transfer it to someone else, upon request). In the event of adverse weather, the workshop will be postponed, and you will be offered alternatives.
Joining instructions will be sent to everyone around two days before the event. This gives me time to take account of any special factors, such as weather for outdoor courses. Also, as you might appreciate, I don't want to make those details available to the general public.
Book early to secure your place.
Following the success of our first ever London based Celtic Sleep Out last year, the 'Celtic Sleep Out, London 2018' will take place on Friday, November 23 and is an integral element of our Christmas Appeal.
The event will take place once again in the grounds of St Anne’s Primary School in Whitechapel and the venue holds huge historical and emotional significance for the Celtic Family.
In 1892, five years after his leading role in the formation of Celtic Football Club, the Marist Order moved Brother Walfrid from Glasgow to the Whitechapel area of London’s East End. Over the next 15 years, as Head Teacher at St Anne’s Primary, Brother Walfrid transformed the school and also established local boys’ clubs and a project to provide meals to the poor in the local community.
In honour of our Founding Father, the London Sleep Out participants will spend the night – from 10.00pm to 6.00am – battling the elements outdoors, under the stars, all for a wonderful cause.
The introduction and briefing elements of the event will take place across the road, at St Anne’s Church, where Brother Walfrid lived during his time in London.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The non-refundable registration fee is £30 per person. Please ensure you read the Terms and Conditions thoroughly before committing your agreement and signing up.
Should you have an outstanding sponsorship balance from a previous Celtic FC Foundation event, this must be settled in full prior to registering for this Event or your registration will be suspended pending full payment of the total due.
Due to anticipated severe weather conditions, this event will be exceptionally challenging, both mentally and physically. Therefore, participants must be aged 18+ and be in an appropriate physical condition to take part.
Celtic FC Foundation will provide a ground mat and foil sheet/blanket but participants are required to bring the appropriate equipment and wear relevant clothing and footwear.
Each participant is tasked with raising a minimum of £130 (after entry fee) and all funds raised will support our 2018 Christmas Appeal, which reflects the very essence of why our Club was set up back in 1887.
The Appeal will help families and pensioners who face poverty and hardship and a number of charities who care for those experiencing the torment of homelessness or other disadvantage.
So please follow in the footsteps of Brother Walfrid and help us make a difference to the most vulnerable in our community this Christmas. Thank you so much for your wonderful support!
