Long exposure photography workshops

LEMAG Long Exposure Photography Workshops are designed to suit all levels of photographic development and always tailored to answer to the needs and requirements of participants. Since we hold them in groups of not more than 5 participants per workshop, we make sure that everyone who take part has full tutor’s attention. From basic composition though to the most advanced post -processing techniques, our trusted tutors will show you how to approach your subject, how to decide on best aperture, exposure time, filters used and much more.


We understand you may have your favourite locations where you want to learn long exposure. We have a number of spots where we regularily meet our clients if they want to have a workshop organised in London and across the Home Countries: Dover, Folkestone, Maidstone, Ramsgate, Shoeburyness, Eastbourne, Brighton, Seven Sisters, Hastings, to name just a few. We are also preparing a few workshops outside of the UK – those will be announced as soon as current travel restrictions are lifted.

We are happy to meet you at any of our custom locations or anywhere else in London or Home Counties.
