Hello! I’m photographer Peter Dench and I’d like to offer you the opportunity for a one to one, one day workshop.

Join me photographing at some of my favourite central London locations looking to capture the humour and irony in English society.

The route will take in the grandest tourist spots London has to offer: Oxford Street - Piccadilly Circus - Leicester Square - Covent Garden - Trafalgar Square - Westminster & Whitehall.

The day will include a pub lunch, probably involving a pork pie, pint, crisps and a large pickled onion.

A signed copy of England Uncensored and a print of your choice (from the book) is also included.

From the workshop you can expect to improve your approach to photographing people in public spaces. It's designed to show how to shoot with speed, confidence, respect, humour and above all, to have fun.

You will become more competent in creating bright clear photographs whatever the weather, often using flash. I will demonstrate how to document a familiar London location in new and exciting ways, how to develop strong themes within the work, and how to build a project and edit with skill. Each participant will receive a detailed critique on the work produced.

The workshop is suitable for beginner and intermediate photographers, capable camera handlers, aspiring professional photographers, dedicated hobbyists, thinkers and beer drinkers (wine and spirit drinkers also welcome.)

Participants should be in possession of a Digital SLR or micro-four thirds camera.


If you are buying this as a gift for someone, I can send you a voucher (and also the book and print) ahead of the workshop for your loved one to open.

A&E: Alcohol & England Print Box

1. A man laughs during a picnic in the car park on Derby Day at Epsom Downs Racecourse. June 2001 

Hello! I'm photographer Peter Dench and I thought it would be nice to offer 12 "10x12" prints for sale from my series;

The work has been published extensively worldwide and received an award from World Press Photo
Each photograph is printed on Giclée Hahnemüle Pearl, a textured paper with a bright neutral white base. It creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant color reproduction and great detail. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction gives the image the feel of an oil painting. This is one of the most suitable of the Giclée Art Paper range for mounting.
Images are provided in a polyester sleeve, the perfect compromise between access and preservation, protecting material from handling and atmospheric hazards yet allows 100% visual access whenever required. The superb glass-like clarity of the polyester and the smooth precision weld on three sides provide the strongest, clearest, safest home for the photograph. The sleeves open on the narrow end for maximum security. 
The 12 photographs are presented in a portfolio box, using quality materials to offer long term, archival storage of your valuable photos. The box is covered in black buckram cloth. The materials are both acid and chlorine free. The adhesives used are both pH neutral and solvent free.
