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.

Coastal photography 1 - Donaghadee harbour, County Down - 1pm - 2 hours
Think Different!

Donaghadee is a well loved and popular spot, photographed many times by many people. But I hope to begin to show you how to at least try to take a fresh approach with the familiar.

If you have a wide-angle lens (18 or 24mm is good) bring it along. Bring a telephoto too if you have one.

Take your time. There’s no need to take hundreds of shots at this session, it’s all about taking the time to see the subject.

Street Photography Meet up - St Anne's Square - 11am - 2 hours
Street photography can be addictive, but also frustrating at times! When there’s so much going on in front of your camera, it can be hard to pick out what to focus on and shoot.
In this session we’ll be looking at how to separate a good photo story from the noise, and how to improve the photos you take when out and about with your camera.
A session looking at capturing everyday life in an urban setting and using photography for storytelling. Suitable for complete beginners.
full - no places left
Saturday the 10th of July 2021
Beginners Photography Class - Botanic Gardens - 11am - 3 hours
This is a session for beginners, intending to cover the basics with the aim to get you all shooting on a manual setting.

Walking around the Botanic gardens, we will also cover some composition techniques.
