ABOUT MORNINGTON
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
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.

REVIEWS
Was great to get support on the functions of the use of the camera and why changing different settings change the photos, not just change the settings and take photos. Being new to using a mirrorless camera, the use of all the settings I?m still learning. Being able to have a bit of one-on-one assistance by a professional was fantastic. Jakes knowledge was great and his instructions were clear and the ?challenges? were a great way to learn different settings.

I think that the event ran smoothly (even with no sunrise turning up). The instructor really knew what he was talking about when it came to photography. I loved the mini challenges that he set, was very clever!
