We are very privileged that Andy Grey, a prolific ICM photographer from Northumberland has kindly agreed to hold another workshop for our region. Andy held a workshop for us in October 2019 which was fully booked and there is still considerable interest in our region. You can see examples of Andy’s work via this link: http://www.andrewsgray.com/

In ICM, a camera is moved during the exposure for a creative or artistic effect. This causes the image points to move across the recording medium, producing an apparent streaking in the resulting image. With it you can create some beautiful, ethereal images.

Like long exposure photography, the idea behind ICM is to use a slow shutter speed to introduce blur into the image. The difference is that with long exposure images you need to use a tripod so that part of the image remains sharp. With ICM you deliberately move the camera during exposure so that everything is blurred.

Tuition outline:


A teaching session in Bamburgh learning  ICM techniques.

From basic to advanced movements with tips to maximize later usability of data.


After lunch demonstrations of the many aspects of Andy’s image creation in post processing including, Lightroom tips, Photoshop layer blending and using the modules in the current version of the Nik Collection. This tuition will take place in South Charlton village hall about 10 minutes’ drive from Bamburgh.

Plenty of time for individual questions.

What to bring:

Packed lunch and drinks

A Digital camera (which you know very well, and can fit an ND filter onto)

ND filter(s) - Recommend a 6 stop for versatility, bring others if you have them.

Plenty of battery power

Plenty of SD/CF cards - Should be coming away with anything from 100-1000 captures from the morning.

NO tripod 

...and a little imagination

Reporting instructions will be emailed to attendees nearer the workshop date.
