Come along to our fortnightly 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 have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Newcastle. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.
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!
What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

It was thoroughly enjoyable. The theme was exploring different angles in photography. The host, Johnny Walker, was knowledgeable and approachable and he knew of some good places where we could explore different angles. 5/5 by Alison Halliday 4-6-2019

I enjoyed the photography session. The topic was selective colour photography, which I have not tried before. It was quite difficult to find appropriate subjects in Newcastle but I did take away a good idea of selective colour photography from the session, 5/5 by Alison Halliday 26-11-2018
Dan Tuff, the photographer was professional, helpful and approachable. I enjoyed the event and learned from it. 5/5 by Alison Halliday 11-11-2018
Very well organised, very informal and informative, I really enjoyed it and took quite a bit away from the day, especially when I saw the results.
