Daytime

Do you want to take your digital camera out of automatic mode? Then this workshop is for you. You will be taught how to control the functions of the camera so that you can take full creative control of your image making (your camera must have a manual mode which allows you to adjust the Shutter Speed, Aperture & ISO (you can check this online or in the instructions that came with your camera).

SONY nominated photographer, videographer & fashion show producer, Dan Harley ( Dan Harley Photography / Live Fashion Official) will take you through the fundamentals of manually controlling your DSLR using a series of unique analogies he has developed

The workshop will take place at the iconic Old Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch, where, using the market as our learning arena, we will cover Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, Focus, Depth of Field, White Balance & Composition

Dan has shot hundreds of shows from some of the biggest Fashion Week runways around the world, both backstage & front of house, where the pressure is on to make the shot for the client & says "It's all about having control of your camera as the principles of image making are the same whether you are shooting Fendi ft Karl Lagerfeld at Milan Fashion Week or taking candid shots at Old Spitalfields Market... & the good news is; it's a lot easier than you think!"

You will be taking lots of photographs on this workshop to demonstrate each aspect mentioned above, and as an additional bonus, everyone who takes the workshop will get the chance to have one of their photographs included in an exhibition staged at Spitalfields Market later in the year.

The images for this class include some of customers on the class, my work and some images that customers have taken on the class

I've tried to understand the settings on my camera too many times in the past and always got very confused so I end up using my DSLR on automatic. Dan made it all very clear and simple and used such great analogies that I can finally be more confident with the manual settings of my camera. Learning about the creative options I have has also gotten me really excited about using my camera more often. Thank you so much, it was a great workshop!

Dan was great, the camera functions were very well explained and he is a fun guy, I’m liking forward to getting to know my camera properly now and will return when he does a stage 2 workshop in the future! If it’s cold wrap up warm as it’s in the market which is basically outdoors. Recommended.

This was an amazing workshop for photography beginners. Dan was great at clearly explaining how to use shutter speed, aperture and ISO and I left with a good understanding of how to control exposure and take great photos! I would definitely recommend!

An amazing workshop. Dan was such an amazing teacher, he was patient and used great analogies to help me understand all the different terms which are normally hard to digest. Very recommended!

If you don't know anything about photography, take this class. If you know about photography but want to get better, take this class. Not only is Dan an expert teacher from whom to learn, but he also tailors the class to each individual's ability and prior knowledge, so that you will one hundred percent leave the class having learnt things. Through the use of clever, simple analogies, Dan channels his years of experience in the industry into a comprehensive and interesting class that's aided by his down-to-earth and likeable nature. Take this class - you won't be disappointed, and you *will* have a good time!

Dan was brilliant - he couldn't have been more patient or friendly. I ridiculously had to learn to use my new camera in one afternoon in advance of an unexpected trip (and I'm not a natural at this stuff) yet Dan easily met the challenge. He made the complex very simple and was wonderfully enthusiastic. Highly recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed the photography class with Dan! All of us in the group were pretty much beginners so Dan was able to adapt the class to teach us all the basics that are integral for getting to know how to work your camera! I now feel much more confident about switching my camera to manual mode and changing the settings to get the best shot! Dan was really friendly and great at explaining and had loads of great analogies to help us remember! Will definitely be attending another photography course with Dan in the future!

Digital Photography Workshop at Old Spitalfields Market by Dan Harley Photography - photography in London

About your host, Dan Harley Photography

Dan Harley is a Sony nominated Photographer & Videographer who has worked predominantly in the areas of Fashion, Backstage, Portrait & Music.

Dan has shot hundreds of shows from some of the biggest Fashion Week runways around the world, both backstage & front of house, where the pressure is on to make the shot for the client.

During this time he also started producing his own Fashion Series called 'Live Fashion Official' which Graduate Fashion Week described earlier this year as "...the world's most exciting Fashion Show"

Dan began adding teaching to his schedule back in 2014 on request from a friend who had taken on too many bookings for her own teaching business & quickly realised the satisfaction he derived from helping his students get to their creative 'A-Haaa' moment.

Dan's teaching goal is always to empower his students to be able to make their own creative adjustments in camera so they can get the shots they want rather than what the camera gives them - He has put together a unique series of simple, real world analogies to simplify the often confusingly taught aspects of photography

The good news is that it's a lot easier than you might think as the principles of image making are the same whether you are shooting Fendi ft Karl Lagerfeld at Milan Fashion Week or taking candid shots at Old Spitalfields Market

Dan is looking forward to helping you get to your own 'A-Haa' moment at the iconic, Old Spitalfields Market
