One Day: Storytelling and Photography in Old Swan, Liverpool

One day of storytelling and photography with street photographer Jane MacNeil and me, Ronnie Hughes.

Taking place on Friday 10th August in Old Swan, Liverpool.
All bookings in advance, here through Eventbrite.

This will be a one day course:

  • For anyone who wants to do more with photography;
  • Tell stories in pictures as well as words;
  • By better appreciating the place where you already are;
  • Or getting to know a fascinating neighbourhood better;
  • Using the camera you already have, your phone.

A day of stories, conversations, ideas, advice and getting out and about round the streets and neighbourhood of Old Swan, Liverpool with the two of us.

And maybe you too?

By the end of the day:

  • You’ll have learned more about places, telling stories, and told one;
  • Learned and tried out some new photography skills;
  • Be looking at the world in new ways;
  • Have had a good time;
  • Got to know Old Swan much better
  • And be ready to go and start telling stories of your own, in your own way;
  • On social media or wherever you like;
  • Using the camera you already have, your phone.

The day will take place around Old Swan, one of Liverpool’s oldest and most fascinating neighbourhoods. Between photography sessions we’ll be in and out of local cafés and talking through what we’re finding in Old Swan Library..

That’s the trailer then.

And the thoughts behind it all? Well, we’re friends, we’ve worked on various things, me the words and Jane the pictures, and for a good while now we’d entertained thoughts of ‘putting on something together’. We did that by running out first ‘One Day’ around Smithdown Road in May. Now we’re moving on to Old Swan for our second event together.

And using phones for the stories and the photographs? Well you matter more than the equipment. You’re the storyteller and you’re the photographer. So we decided for these events we’d use the cameras most of us already have. So the day can focus on  getting the best from your phone, rather than all of us getting lost in the technical details of loads of camera kit. Simple.

So it’s a day of stories. Of how they get told. And of how you capture them while they’re happening. On your phone.

All bookings in advance, here through Eventbrite.
Course costs £95.00 per person.

  1. I genuinely wish that I could join you. It’s just the cost of the flight from Melbourne that’s stopping me. But, I am still lucky to live in a time when I can see and ‘talk’ to you from afar. Post some of the results please.
