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 Hamilton Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Beginners Photography Class - Hamilton Gardens - 9am - 3 hrs
It all begins with an idea. Do you want to improve your hobby and begin to capture those great images? Do you have a creative project you want to share with the world. Whatever it is, learn the photography skills to successfully tell your story.

For this session please bring a tripod if you have one, also any cleaning equipment you use. I will spend a few minutes on general upkeep procedures to keep everything in top working order and how to look after your equipment.

If you have a camera bag bring that (there won’t be much required for you to pack), just a notebook and pen for the points and tips you want to remember, a drink and a snack to keep your brain fueled.

Remember to wear comfortable clothes, especially footwear.

With this being a smaller class, we will have a lot of one-on-one time but; be open to sharing your difficulties and current hurdles with the others in our class. That is how we all learn, improve, and develop your photographic eye. Hopefully the weather holds out however we have a backup in case of any difficulties.

In this class you will learn how to photograph in manual mode and explore the limitless approaches that photography can offer you. The only limitation is your imagination.
