Worcester Music Festival Photo Workshop 23rd August


There’s no shortage of eye-popping subject matter on offer for those entering this year’s festival photography competition, with the likes of acclaimed punk poet Attila the Stockbroker (who has appeared at every Glasto since 1983) to delicious, psychedelic outfit Vienna Ditto (as featured on BBC 6 Music) on the bill.

However, if you’d like to have a go, but don’t know your aperture from your aspect, don’t fear.

We are, once again, holding our popular, free music photography workshop in the run-up to the festival, the chance for beginner and intermediate photographers to learn a few tricks of the trade before the fest.

Taking place from 1-4pm on Sunday, August 23rd at Worcester Arts Workshop, you will not only receive invaluable expert advice, there will be living, breathing (well, some of them) local bands to practice on.

Co-ordinator Mark Hoy said: “Gig photography is one of the most challenging fields in photography as you have almost no control of your subject matter, the lighting or angles. There will be some technical stuff, however, the emphasis will be on taking photos in different conditions, when to use and not use the flash, tips on where to stand and what to look for, etiquette, and the chance to get feedback.”

To register your free place, visit worcestermusicfestival.co.uk/photoworkshop or email photo@worcestermusicfestival.co.uk with your name, email address and camera make / model, specifying if it’s a compact or a dSLR. There are only 30 places available, so book early to avoid disappointment.
