A Green Campus with Martine Hamilton Knight.

You’ll be joining one of the UK’s most well known architectural photographers at the multi - award winning University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus for a great day learning how to shoot truly memorable photographs of buildings with a longtime pro.

With a hands-on, informal approach, Martine takes you through a confidence building introduction to this subject matter and the best approach with your DSLR/CSC kit. 

We start the day with an in-depth classroom tutorial and then follow with a walking photographic tour through this beautiful lakeside campus. Opened in 1999 with and architecture designed by international practices joining the collection of buildings ever since, we are assured most stunning of locations. With both interiors and exteriors, to shoot, you will learn about the challenges of lighting, styling, working with models/figures and of course the many weather considerations.

With demonstrations of Tilt/Shift lenses, Martine brings this technical way of shooting to life and you will leave with a collection of colourful, memorable images and new skills to take to your future shoots.  

The campus is 1.5 miles to the west of Nottingham city centre, just off the A6005 which runs into Nottingham (4 miles from Junction 25 of the M1) There is pay and display parking at the northern end of the site and public transport runs regularly from the centre of Nottingham directly to the campus. 

Our base room is in the Jubilee campus Conference Centre (whose entrance is next to a silver building which makes a bridge over the road). Just ask for Martine at reception.  

Please arrive at 9.45 for a 10am start and the course finishes at around 4.30pm with approx a 1/2 hour break for lunch.

There are plenty of cafes in the Jubilee Campus buildings for coffee/food but you may want to bring a packed lunch instead.

Please Bring: Camera, all Lenses, Charged Batteries & a Tripod - (if you have one), if not we have plenty to borrow. A notebook & pen may be useful.

Our day includes working indoors and out, so do dress for the weather. The sites are wheelchair friendly, but do advise us if you have mobility issues.
