Photography Workshop led by Aidan O’Rourke (tutor, photographer and writer), a long-term supporter of Victoria Baths.
The workshop is designed to give participants a unique opportunity to photograph the interior of this remarkable building, including an hour before doors open to the general public. As part of a small group you will have privileged access to many interesting and visually appealing areas, some of which are not normally open to the public. You can also photograph the Swim for Restoration event, which starts at 11am and includes swimming in the Gala Pool (only the third time in 26 years we've opened the pool for public swimming).
There is no formal instruction on the workshop. You are encouraged to explore the building and take photographs at your own pace. Aidan will chat to participants individually, asking and answering questions as well as offering feedback and suggestions.
On some workshops a model may be available. Those who would like to photograph the model are requested to make an additional contribution to cover the modelling fee. Please enquire in advance for more information.
The workshop is suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. Any type of camera is suitable. A tripod will be useful for taking photos in low light conditions.
The cost of the workshop is £25 paid in cash on the day. The workshop runs until 1pm, after which you are welcome to stay and enjoy the rest of the Swim for Restoration event, which runs until 4pm (no further admission payable).
Victoria Baths Gift Shop and Tea Room will be open from 11am until 4pm, selling cakes, snacks soft drinks and hot beverages. There will also be food stalls.
