Long Exposure

Long Exposure Photography is when your camera is set to a very long shutter setting enabling you to slow down movement of something. This is especially beautiful when you are photographing water. 

As this is a specific subject lesson you must have:

  1. DSLR camera

  2. Neutral Density (ND) filters

  3. A remote shutter release

  4. A sturdy tripod

If you have any questions on any of these, please let me know in advance. There are so many options as to what you could purchase, it is often a case of what works best for you.

1. Your DSLR camera. I am not a camera technician so please have a good understanding of bulb mode and how to attach your filters and where the shutter release cable is attached

2. Neutral Density filters 

3. Shutter release cable

4. Tripod

5. Snacks and drinks, and any medication such as inhalers or epi-pens.

6. Walking clothes and sturdy walking shoes



1. Chat, conversation and a friendly and safe environment to walk with other photography enthusiasts who are looking to share ideas and learn new things. It doesn't matter what level you are at.

2. This session is designed specifically to work on long exposure photography. We will go through the steps required to take Long Exposure images, and spend our time just practising. 


The walks will be along mainly pavements or gravelled paths, but we might go on sand and over rocks, so have appropriate footwear. I would recommend you have a purpose designed camera bag to keep your equipment safe, ad wear clothing that will enable you to sit or kneel, if you are able. Sometimes the ground can be wet and muddy if we've had a lot of rain. I will only cancel the event if it is pouring with rain, or we have had a deluge and the pathways are too slippy. Each walk will have its own Risk Assessment.


The walks will be around 2 hours duration, although we will be stopping quite a bit on our route. It will only be about 2-3km of actual walking.  Bring bottled water to keep hydrated, and if you have any allergies, please advise me and bring with you your inhaler or epi-pen. I am a qualified First Aider, so can offer immediate assistance, but we will not be near a hospital for emergency care.

I do have Public Liability Insurance, but please note that you are responsible for your own safety and equipment on this walk, but I will do all I can to make sure it is fun, educational and safe!

Cancellation policy:

If you are a no-show on the day it will incur 100% loss of the total booking fee of £8.

If you advise me you cannot attend within 48 hours of the booking, I will transfer you to a new date.

No refunds are given once booking confirmed unless I cancel the event for a personal reason.

If I have to cancel due to awful (eg. storms/torrential rain) weather, then I will move the session to a new date.
