Upcoming Events

Note from the User Group Manager

Welcome to the London Photographic Adobe User Group!

London Photographic (Meetup Group) is a fully established meeting place for likeminded Photographers; we have been around for over 6 years and have increased our membership to more than 3800 with new members joining daily. The focus of the group is to be everything around Photography, including the use of cameras, lighting, the Adobe Photoshop family (Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom); professional photographer talks and inspirational/creative activities such as our monthly photo walks, posing workshops, themed shoots, and studio and off camera flash workshops.

We have a progressive calendar with an active support community and try to hold a minimum of six meetings a month for our members to participate in. We also have strong links to the active professionals within the UK photography market, who are always keen to come and speak at our events.

We are applying to be a certified Adobe User group for multiple reasons; 1) We are passionate about the craft of photography and are striving to stay as the largest Photography Community group in the UK. 2) We would like to have a closer relationship with the Adobe brand in the UK and become almost independent ambassadors. 3) We would like to grow our group in different directions; being closer to Adobe in this way will potentially help us to achieve this and move into other sectors, i.e. film and video where we can help members to further explore their creativity in moving images and the editing processes.

photoLondon Photographic

Tom Ang gives a rare workshop in London. This is an amazing opportunity to work with and learn from one of the leading authorities on digital photography.

Tom Ang is an award winning photographer, author, educator and TV broadcaster. With numerous volumes on photography to his name, including The Digital Photographer's Handbook, Digital Photography Masterclass, Fundamentals of Photography, Tom has the the exceptional ability to deliver information to his audience in a way which is understood by everyone. 

Tom has presented TV shows on photography across the globe, including the popular BBC 'Digital Picture of Britain' series. 

This workshop is aimed at beginners and improvers. Like understanding how a sentence is constructed, or the shape of a musical phrase or a theatrical speech, Tom will take you through the systematic building of an image.

The workshop will be a 4-hour practical walk-about, you will be set a series of tasks by Tom that'll help develop your photos step by step. 

In the afternoon, Tom will review the morning's work as part of the seminar. There will be ample of time to speak to Tom and ask questions during the course of the day.

Tom currently lives in New Zealand, but will be in Europe and Africa on tour this summer where he will be the Guru in Residence at the Month of Photography in Cape Town, before returning to London to judge for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, so we are very privileged he has found time to dedicate to LPMG.

Suggested Gear to bring:

• Camera body

• Wide angle lens

• Telephoto lens

• Tripod

Workshop attendees will get free entry into the seminar in the afternoon.

Part proceeds will go to Tom's charity Practical Action.

Central London location will be announced shortly. 

Early Bird price £70 includes entry to the seminar.
