I'd always had a keen interest in photography (especially fashion & travel photography) & work in a creative industry myself, so was excited to get started. Having no prior experience of using my camera (Canon 1200d) which was bought for me as a gift, I was quite apprehensive, thinking... More

Saturday morning beginners course with Lou on 4th June was exactly what I needed to open my eyes to the functionality and capabilities of my Olympus Compact System Camera. She's a great teacher, with a tremendous level of knowledge and technical ability. A great investment, and great fun.

We had a private tour s d had a great time with Lou who showed my 11 year old goddaughter how to use her camera and ways to frame and utilise the focal length to provide different aspects. She provided information about caring for the camera (especially in the wet) and also use of the polorising filter. Thank you Lou... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
