Tom Arber Xmas Banner

Professional photographer Tom Arber will lead an evening photography session looking at difficult to shoot situations, experimenting with long exposure photography using the Christmas lights surrounding The Hepworth Wakefield.


This evening will be a perfect chance to use your Digital SLR to get in the festive spirit and capture some magic images of the Christmas season.

The workshop is suitable for beginners or more confident and experienced photographers. It is a great chance to learn some top tips on how to make the most of your camera and to exploit different light sources to your advantage. Detailed instruction of techniques will be provided, helping you to master hard to photograph situations and build your confidence so in future fleeting moments don’t pass you by!

Taking the form of a photography trail, participants will start at The Hepworth Wakefield, considering the act of looking and manipulating light as the fundamentals of night photography, before being guided on a short walk around the surrounding area.

The evening will end back at The Hepworth Wakefield, warming up with a tea or coffee, sharing your images with others and chance for a quick Q&A with Tom Arber to consider alternative approaches and refine techniques for future reference.


Tom Arber is a full-time professional photographer with over 10 years experience. Working principally within commercial photography, and specialising in documenting events, Tom is the ideal person to lead a practical and thought-provoking exploration of contemporary photography.
