Shoreditch is famous for its wealth of culture, art, fashion and food.  For photography lovers the most outstanding attribute is its colourful and unique landscape.  Nowhere in London is like Shoreditch as the locations are covered in street art by world famous street artists such as, Roa, Eine, Stik, Dale Grimshaw and Shepard Fairey.  It is this fantastic cultural mix which makes Shoreditch famous.

Shoreditch Street Art

Walking in Shoreditch is a fantastic experience.  See small cozy coffee shops, colourful boutique shop fronts, pop up food fests and art galleries.  Huge brands, such as Google, Gucchi and Amazon have flocked to invest in Shoreditch.  However the experience of Shoreditch is intimate as streets are narrow and shops are small.  The variety is huge and there is lots to see and do.  Taste the delights of luxurious chocolate in one of Shoreditch’s chocolate parlours.  Buy delicious gelato ice cream and discover exciting varieties.

In the above photo we see a colourful bicycle leaning against a red heart shaped sculpture.  It’s a beautiful combination of warm red colours.  Only in Shoreditch will you see this abundance of colour used so generously.  It’s a great place to photograph and capture the spirit of the place.  In our Shoreditch Street Photography Workshop we aim to capture the spirit of the place.
