Following the feedback from my first Quirky Bristol Photo Workshop in August I have added a further date taking in different locations. Comments included,

Thank you for the fantastic walk yesterday in Bristol City Centre. The walk opened my eyes to many things I hadn’t noticed before and I managed to get some good photos.” then you came along with the insightful walk. We both went home buzzing…“

So what is it about? Well when we think of Bristol, we tend to think of Brunel’s Suspension Bridge, the SS Great Britain and flying balloons. But Bristol offers so many more opportunities for photography.

In the days of lockdowns Adrian took the opportunity to explore and discover beyond the obvious and found the centre of Bristol is rich in the not so well-known places, history, mystery and stories. On this photography tour we have the opportunity to photograph some of the area’s historical sites, starting at the bottom of Park Street on College Green, we will take it sights and oddities and for those who wish to try some street photography as we move across the centre to King Street and beyond.

In just this small area there are oddities, street art, the macabre and more

As we walk Adrian, who does not profess to be a tour guide, he is a professional photographer, will point out some lesser-known sites and history that might otherwise pass us by while always focussing on the opportunity to enjoy and improve our photography skills.

During our time Adrian will give the opportunity to photograph:

  • Buildings to people, light and shadows, reflections and the quirky.
  • Point out some of the lesser-known points of this part of Bristol giving the chance to photograph beyond the obvious.
  • Help with camera settings including white balance, ISO, semi-automatic settings
  • Experiment with composition and perspectives.


This is a photography walk for all, whether using a smart phone, tablet or DSLR. Each offers an opportunity to photograph this incredible part of the city but moving beyond bridges and balloons and offers the chance to get creative if you wish and recover that photographic mojo!
