Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor. Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!
We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!
Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.
What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!
The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.
This is a session for beginners, intending to cover the basics with the aim to get you all shooting on a manual setting.
We will cover Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed, and get you understanding exposure and using your histogram.
Walking around the Botanic gardens, we will also cover some composition techniques.
This is a very hands-on class, so you’ll have plenty of time to practice your new skills on the day and take lots of shots!

Technically correct architectural photography is a whole field in it's own right with particular skills and equipment requirements. But photographing buildings in a pleasing way creatively can be successfully achieved in a fairly simple way.
I spent much of my professional career working as University Photographer for Queen's University and photographed all of the Campus buildings many times creatively (and technically) for promotional purposes. Come and learn how to capture these beautiful buildings and then be able to apply your new skills to others you may visit.

It was very informal and relaxed!! Despite being an absolute beginner who was eager to know everything Martyn was patient affable and very upbeat!! Just what you need in a tutor!! I had a fantastic day and went on to put all I had learned into practise in the afternoon after the course!! I would definitely attend future sessions 5/5 by Karen French 15-5-2021
