What happens when you take a group of avid travellers, add a sprinkle of camera equipment, a dash of professional advice, and a whole lotta quirky Brighton fun? An amazing array of photos and memories of a fab day out! Here’s a recap of our first photography workshop:
Having worked online and on the phone to organise holidays during the past six years, we realised it was about time we put some faces to the names of our lovely customers and invite a group down to our brand new offices in sunny Brighton for the day. The aim was to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has supported and travelled with Rickshaw, as we are consistently overwhelmed by the great feedback people have given us after returning from our trips.
Starting the day at Rickshaw HQ, we kicked off with a travel photography workshop courtesy of our good friend, Doug from Kitebox, who explained the ins and outs of how to take a great photo on the move, including tips and hints on cameras and editing platforms. Inspired, we headed out into the throngs of Brighton’s busy North Laines, armed with our cameras and determined to show the group what we could do. After wandering through the beautiful Royal Pavilion Gardens the group took a well earned lunch break at Pho, Brighton.
Full of noodles and refreshed, we made our way to the seafront and visited what Doug eloquently described at the ‘Brighton Donut’, as well as the pier and the arches. After making our way back to Rickshaw HQ, the difficult challenge of choosing three favourite pictures from the day began. Prizes were handed out for the best snaps of the day, and plenty of Brighton Rock was flung around by an excitable Doug!
We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came to the day, we enjoyed it immensely and the results speak for themselves!
“Brilliant fun and such a friendly group of Ramblers and guides. Doug’s workshop really helped to hone our creative skills and gave us great ideas – I got addicted to reflections! Lunch was scrumptious and the route was nice and varied.” Laura Dale
