London Black Cab Photography Tour
19th - 22nd November, 2023
€1,495.00 - €500.00 Deposit
Join us this November for a very unique photography workshop with a twist! Experience London as never before, under the guidance of professional photographer and guide Terry Gibbins, as he leads us through the inspiring London cityscape in his Black Cab, sharing his knowledge of the best the city has to offer. Terry and I have travelled and worked together on a number of occassions over the years. I have guided for Terry and his tour groups in Ireland and I am looking forward to working with him on this tour on his home ground!
Photographer Terry Gibbins was born in Greenwich and has spent his whole life living and working in London. Terry studied photography at college and later began learning 'the Knowledge' to become a London Black Taxi driver. In his own words “this scratched a growing itch to explore my surroundings, as a cabbie I now had the flexibility and freedom to balance my love of Photography and London with work and home life”
Terry began leading photo tours in London and overseas in 2015, and regularly runs tours in London and worldwide.
The workshop will begin with a meet and greet at the hotel, 5pm on the Sunday evening (19th November). This will allow time beforehand to check in and get settled. There is the option to go for dinner with the group, before heading out for an evening shoot.
Following this, here will be two full days of shooting (Mon 20th & Tue 21st) on the workshop. Throughout each day we will visit many of the iconic locations and explore some of the lesser known areas too.
Terry and I will help you capture everyday London life as well as the classic London images, such as Westminster, Big Ben, and The Thames Barrier. You will also be encouraged to create your own personal interpretation of this inspiring city using a variety of photographic styles ranging from classic colour and B&W using long exposures to more expressionistic styles such ICM.
