July saw the launch of our first Echo Photo Walk in a while. The sun shone as the group explored the architecture and landscape of East Village, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Olympic Velodrome, guided by Echo member and local resident Frank Da Silva.
Join us again, as we explore the architecture, street art and urban beauty of Hackney Wick & Fish Island through the lens of a camera.
Tour guide Simon Cole, from Hackney Tours will be leading us through the maze of graffiti laden streets, past old industrial factories and shining new developments. The area is fast changing and this is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the history and secrets that you wouldn't discover alone, and makes this area of London like no other.
In line with tradition, we'll also visit a special hidden location, which will only be revealed to ticket holders closer to the time!
If that wasn't enough, we'll have a guest photographer (or three!) along to share their photography tips and tricks.
If you want to improve your photography and learn new techniques this walk is made for you. It's a great chance to absorb the culture of the area and see the spaces around you from a new perspective.
Your photography guide will be Echo member, East Village resident, and photography enthusiast Frank Da Silva.
Meeting point is outside Hackney Wick Overground Station at 11am. The walk will last around 3 hours and we'll finish at a local bar for drinks where they'll be even more chances to swap skills and knowledge.

Camera / phone
Water / snacks
Tripod (essential for long exposure photography)
