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.

Join the Bristol Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.
Portrait photography Really informative and fun course with pdfs and direction on the day. Plenty of time to try different approaches and a great model to boot. Highly recommend.

I found it to be an enjoyable and instructive morning, helped along by not raining. A powerpoint presentation was provided in advance and reiterated through the morning, so we knew what to expect and I think all points were covered. It was carried out in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Karen did a very good job of putting us at ease and provide some basic information about macro photography. I particularly enjoyed trying a variety of possibilities I hadn't explored before. Karen also provided helpful feedback and resources we could use for further development. I appreciated her teaching. I also found useful to meet the other people and share information and tips. I left feeling inspired and encouraged to develop my macro photography skills. I can't think of a better outcome.
