Urban Pods

The Urban Pods are
a great opportunity to join members of the club on either a walkabout or an outdoors location shoot in London. These pods alternate with the Studio Lighting Pod and they take place on the third Saturday of the month.

The Urban Walking Pod
This is the walkabout photography group that takes to the streets of London to create images. The walks often last a few hours but can stretch into longer times.

We pick a route beforehand, choose a meeting point and time and then venture out. We post the full route in the socials beforehand so anyone can join at any point.

The shots taken are shared on our socials and used to promote the club and often make it into our Members Exhibitions.

The Urban Portrait Pod
Instead of a walkabout, our Urban Portrait Pod focuses on interesting outdoor location shoots. We identify interesting places, find a concept, and then meet up on location. Members are encouraged to bring props, lights, etc., and if we don't have a model, we would model for each other. If people feel like doing a bit of a walkabout around the area, they are welcome to do that too.

Who can Join?
The Urban Pods are open to ALL levels of photography and they are completely free for members.  Non-members can attend for free for a single Urban Pod, but would be expected to either pay £10 for a one-day membership pass for each subsequent Pod, or to become a member of the Club if they wish to continue attending these sessions.

The Weather & the Leaders
As the Urban Pods take place outdoors, the weather will have the final say on whether they go ahead or not. In addition, these sessions are led by volunteers from the Camera Club, so we are also dependent on their availability which may change due to unforseen circumnstances.

To help us organise these pods, please, book your spot for the next Urban Walking Pod here.
