    ‘Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.’ William Shakespeare Recently I compiled a collection of video interviews of photographers I really admire (Don McCullin, Annie Leibovitz etc.).

      “I would highly recommend Anthony’s London at Dawn workshop. I joined for the Tower Bridge to Columbia Road leg, and thoroughly enjoyed it (including the coffee and bagel stops along the way). The group was just the right size; Anthony was really great at tailoring his advice towards each student’s learning needs whilst also creating space for students to share their own experiences/techniques/do’s and don’ts. Not only did I learn how to avoid some typical faux pas for dawn shooting, but Anthony also inspired me to look at photographic composition in a different way (manipulating angles, exploring reflections, managing too many subjects in the same frame). All in all – a great course to go on regardless of your technical level – and if you are an avid photographer visiting London, definitely get on this course to explore some of the less obvious but beautiful bits of London. Waking up at 3am in the morning can definitely give you a new perspective on what’s interesting to photograph!”
