The Story Behind That Picture: "London Workshop"

The City

London is often referred to as "The City" and some times as "The Big Smoke". It's one of my favorite places to photograph because of the light, the food and the many iconic trademarks from black taxis to red brick walls. And first and foremost, it is a walking city - which makes it perfect for what this is all about: Walking around with a camera.

Enjoy the photographs here from me and the students in this London Workshop. Should you feel like expanding your horizon by attending one of the upcoming workshops or the next London Workshop in January, have a look at the workshop calendar. You are more than welcome!

 

  Review from the Overgaard Workshop in London:  
 

 

"What a pleasure it was to spend a few days with you all.

Thorsten, I really enjoyed meeting you and your family and must say that the relaxed way in which you teach made it a pleasure."



 
  - B. Q (UK)  

 

 

  Review from the Overgaard Workshop in London:  
 

 

"It's been great meeting all of you! I enjoyed every minute of the workshop and a special thanks goes to Thorsten for making this happen.

Ciao!"



 
  - E. F. (Venice)

The Survival Kit is unique and one-of-a-kind being made for photographers for photographers. When someone understands their subject, they can explain it so it is easy to understand. The hallmark of Thorsten Overgaard is to make expert knowledge shown and told in a way so anyone can apply it.

Most important of all, it'll give you back ownership of your files (which you will understand why is so important, once you have bought the Survival Kit and started applying its methods).

     
 

"Thorsten's methodology is perhaps not what hardware-, software- and cloud-companies want us to do, but as a former IT engineer I can only acknowledge his views about preserving our digital heritage. This workflow explained is for me the best I have ever seen".
