Liverpool River of Light Guided Photography Walks

As with 2021 I’m bringing my popular *free photography walks back to the Liverpool River of Light Trail and I’d love to see you there. On this photo walk I’ll take you round the trail showing you the best angles and camera settings to capture the displays in all their glory, and all in under 2 1/2 hours! This walk are mixed ability, there is no need to have the latest camera equipment or years of experience a camera phone will do just fine!

All I ask is for each person who attends to give what they feel the walk was worth to them at the end of the evening. These walks are very popular so please choose a night below and book to secure your place.

2022 River Of Light Trail Guided Walks

No event found!

What is the river of light trail?

Every year the City of Liverpool invites artists from around the world to display their illuminated artworks along the world-famous waterfront, this year the theme is “Unexpected Twist” and the individual artworks are yet to be announced.

When is the 2022 River of Light in Liverpool?

This year the River of Light Trail will run from Friday the 21st of October until Sunday 6th of November. I will be running guided walks on the Monday/Tuesday/Thursday and Friday of both weeks.

How do your walks work?

I offer these guided walks for no upfront fee, all you need to do is choose a date above to book a place, then turn up on the day with your camera gear and I’ll guide you round the artworks. Then at the end of the evening simply give whatever you feel the walk was worth to you in the form of a tip with no expectations.

In most cases, attendees choose to give between £10-£15, but this is completely up to each person who attends. It’s my job, as your guide, to entertain you, give you photography hints and tips and show you around the artworks.

I’ll never pressure you to tip; I believe that, when money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the walk and the budget of those attending.

It’s a kind of satisfaction guarantee, if you don’t enjoy the walk, just walk away, no questions asked.

Why do I need to book?

To ensure I can help everyone on the walk and get round all of the artworks I like to keep groups to a maximum of 10 people so booking is essential.

Can I book a private group walk?

I have a couple of free nights over the weekends and can accommodate a limited number of private bookings, please click here to contact me for more details.
