Wonders of Water Workshop

Photographing water is what this hands on workshop is all about. During the day you’ll get to grips with capturing water in lots of different ways. We’ll be pouring it, splashing it and adding things to it to create a selection of amazing photos.

You’ll need a digital SLR camera. a tripod (if you have one) and a willingness to get your hands wet. We’ll supply all the props you need and Gavin will be on hand to walk you through the set ups.

F.A.Q.’s about this workshop.
Before you decide on to book take a look at the questions and answers below to help give you a little bit more of an insight into what to expect.

Who will be running the workshop?
Gavin Hoey will be leading all the workshops.

Where is the workshop located?
This workshop will be held in a private hall in Copthorne, West Sussex. It’s located just a few minutes away from the M23 Motorway. The nearest Train Stations are East Grinstead, Three Bridges or Gatwick Airport.

What time does the workshop start?
We suggest arriving at around 10.15 for a 10.30 start.

Are refreshments included?
Tea or coffee will be available and if your really lucky there may even be some of Sam’s legendary home made cakes or biscuits for you to enjoy. You’ll need to bring you’re own lunch as there are no shops or restaurants in the near vicinity.

What will I need to bring?
For this workshop a Digital SLR camera and a standard zoom lens (e.g 18-70mm) is ideal. You’ll also need a tripod and if you have one remember to bring your remote / cable release. We’ll be using speedlites (flash guns) which will be supplied by us but you’re welcome to bring your own too.
Many of our students have built up a collection of equipment and prefer to use their own gear, however if you do not have items that are required you’re welcome to use ours.

Does the make of DLSR matter?
Radio flash triggers will be used during a large part of the workshop, so as long as your camera has a standard hotshoe you’ll be fine. DSLR’s from Canon and Nikon will be just fine, however SONY owners will need to bring their own adapter to convert the unique Sony hotshoe to a standard hotshoe.

Can I contact you?
If you would like to speak to Sam to book or ask a question then you are welcome to call 01342 717428. If no one is available to take your call please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Alternatively you can send Sam an email sales@gavtrain.com

Can you recommend somewhere to stay?
We have many photographer who travel long distances to be with us. Being so close to Gatwick airport means there’s no shortage of places to stay and a wide variety of prices to choose from. If you would like to include an overnight stay with your visit please take a look at the excellent information provided by Trip Advisor.

Do you have any tips to get the most from the workshop?
Tip 1: Make sure you bring plenty of spare memory cards and batteries (or charger)
Tip 2: Don’t buy a new piece of equipment just to attend the course, you may not need it.
Tip 3: Don’t panic if you get held up. Just give a call and let us know.
Tip 4: Don’t expect every shot to be perfect. The workshop is all about learning and that means making mistakes
Tip 5: Do have an open mind, everyone’s taste in photography is different.
