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 or mirrorless 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 all the set ups as well as some Photoshop tips.
|Some of the areas covered include…
Places Available – There will be a maximum of 9 spaces available
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 restaurants in the near vicinity.
What will I need to bring?
For this workshop a Digital SLR camera (or mirrorless) and a standard zoom lens (e.g 18-70mm) is ideal. You’ll also need a tripod and if you have one, a cable release might come in handy. We’ll be using flash (supplied by us) to capture the action and don’t worry, we’ll help set up you camera if you’re new to flash photography.
Whilst we are unable to loan out cameras and lenses, please let us know in advance if you need to borrow one of our tripods.
Does the make of camera matter?
Radio flash triggers will be used during the workshop, so as long as your camera has a standard hotshoe you’ll be fine. Users of Canon and Nikon, Olympus, Pentax etc will be just fine, however some SONY owners will need to bring their own adapter to convert the unique Sony hotshoe (found on older Sony models) in to a standard hotshoe. Please ask if you are unsure
Can I contact you?

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.

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 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.
