Salford Quays, Manchester Photowalk

14th July 2023

You’re invited to join our Salford Quays photowalk in Manchester this summer.

If you’re looking for a relaxing and enjoyable way to learn more about photography and meet other like-minded shooters this is a wonderful event to attend. This urban and architectural photo walk is led by an iPhotography tutor with years of experience in helping photographers improve their shots.

What's There?

While Salford Quays today is all about high-spec modern architecture, its foundations have been laid on what was one of the world’s biggest industrial ports built along the Manchester Ship Canal.

There are still remnants of that historical past blended beautifully into the modern working space of MediaCity.

The photowalk will give you opportunities to photograph the Imperial War Musuem, BBC and ITV’s MediaCity, The Lowry and more along the route.

You’ll be able to focus your photography on capturing spectacular shots of hi-spec architecture, and clean open spaces punctuated by the historic open canal running through the heart of the site.

Full details of the meeting point will be included in a confirmation email when you reserve your spot.

What Do I Need to Bring Along?

It doesn’t matter what camera equipment you have. During the photo walk, your tutor can show you what settings to use and when to make the most of a moment.

Bring along a couple of memory cards and spare batteries too. It’s up to you if you want to take your tripod and lens filters, though you might find this useful for long exposure shots on the river.

Consider the location and the weather on the day in terms of what to wear and bring.

How Long Does a Photo Walk Last?

This Salford Quays photo walk lasts approximately 4 hours.

During the walk, you’ll get to meet and speak to fellow photographers and find out more about what they enjoy shooting. It’s a great way of making lasting friendships and connections with other like-minded shooters, especially if you usually shoot alone.
