Hampstead Heath Photo and Bookmaking Workshop

About this Event

Join Eddie Ephraums and Matt Maran on Hampstead Heath for a weekend workshop of photography, editing, designing and book making. This workshop will provide you with a unique experience to engage with nature through photography resulting in each participant taking away a beautifully crafted hand-made concertina book.Whether you are a beginner or keen amateur this workshop will provide a support framework for those interested in connecting with nature through photography. All too often digital images remain on computer hard drives or never go beyond a quick glance on a camera screen. This workshop will get you active with your images and encourage you to explore ideas with an end product in mind. We will look at capturing a range of images, explore themes and get you to consider what inspires you and why.

Whether it’s the detail of a beautiful old growth oak tree, close up shots of woodland fungi, or the spectacular grassland expanse with the backdrop of the London skyline - there are countless opportunities to capture creative images on The Heath.

The weekend will be split into two sessions:

Saturday Morning: We will spend the morning and early afternoon at a specially chosen site in the 800+ acres of London’s Hampstead Heath. We will have ample time for photography, with support provided for both technical and creative issues.

Afternoon: We return to the Education Centre for lunch to begin the uploading, editing, group discussions and the beginning.

-------------------------------------------

Sunday Morning: Continue the final editing and begin working on the layouts of the chosen images

Afternoon: Printing, trimming, creasing, folding and gluing the finished books.

Things to remember:

Bring a packed lunch, water bottle, good walking shoes, raincoat, fully charged batteries and empty memory cards. We do a fair amount of walking so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Bridge, point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras welcome. No smart phones!!

Workshops are limited to 8 places.
