Cathedrals and their interiors can be challenging photographic subjects. The quality of light inside these beautiful buildings are affected by what the Almighty is doing outside.

Why not get some expert instruction on dealing with these challenges from Olympus Mentor Derek Forss? A photographically uplifting afternoon at Ely Cathedral awaits!

Highly regarded by historians and architects from all over the world for its beauty and size, Ely Cathedral is the only UK building to be listed as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages”. Visible for miles around, the Cathedral is often referred to as “The Ship of the Fens”. The city of Ely may be small in comparison to other cities but its Cathedral is a magnificent structure with a history dating back over 1300 years.

Today more people than ever visit cathedrals to admire their glorious architecture and art works. At Ely, be prepared to be overwhelmed by its sheer splendour; photograph the famous Octagon Tower, a masterpiece of engineering, explore Lady Chapel and the nave. With extensive access to the cathedral’s magnificent architecture – both inside and out, this is a wonderful opportunity to capture the cathedral in all it’s majestic glory.

What’s more, attendees will also get exclusive access to one of the Cathedral’s two towers. With the Octagon Tower considered as a wonder of the medieval world and the taller West Tower offering spectacular views over the city and surrounding countryside, you won’t want to miss this amazing photographic opportunity.

During the event Derek will guide you through many other architectural highlights offering help and advice on camera settings, composition tips and much more. This is a unique opportunity to explore one of our great cathedrals with a photographer whose architectural work has received praise in print.

You’ll also be joined by Olympus team of experts, who will be loaning out Olympus kit and offering their first-class advice! Why not test out your OM-D and amazing Olympus OIS image stabilisation system by hand-holding in low light or discover HDR mode when capturing the magnificent stained glass window designs?

Tickets are limited to 20, so don’t delay – book your ticket today! 

Tickets: £48 inc. VAT
