I am running a series of Masterclasses at InterContinental Hotels this autumn. Next up is Paris this coming weekend 2nd and 3rd November. The events are free of charge and available to guests staying on the InterContinental Hotel Weekend Escapes Package. Pre-booking is essential via www.intercontinental.com/weekendescapes and there are just a few places left.
Each day starts with a meeting over coffee at the hotel where we explore some ideas and ways of looking which will hopefully bring a new perspective to guest's travel and holiday photographs. Then armed with expert location tips on the cities hidden gems from the hotel's concierges, guests are free to explore the city and put some of the ideas we've discussed into practice. Later in the day, I meet up with the guests in the city at a pre-arranged time, look at some pictures and have some one-to-one time photographing the city and I shoot some portraits of the guests at our chosen location. In the evening there will be another opportunity to look at the work we've done during the day and talk further.
The first session in London last month was great fun despite the pouring rain and heavy grey skies (it did give us opportunities to look at shooting in bad weather - see one of the guests series of St Pauls below) and the next two are Paris le Grand: 2/3 November and Dusseldorf 30 Nov/1Dec.

Here's a few pics (some mine, some guests) from the first weekend in London....
It would be great to see you in France or Germany.
