We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Jacksonville. It's a 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 amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

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 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!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

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.

Beginners Guide to Editing in Lightroom
Learn editing in Lightroom. If you're a budding photographer looking to improve your photos after you take them, Lightroom is one of the easiest ways to edit your photos. This hands-on three hour class will focus on teaching the basics such as importing files and managing them, as well as finer editing skills. This includes making adjustments to RAW files for things such as exposure, colour, cropping and retouching, and learning how to batch process multiple photos. You'll also learn how to use presets for effectiveness and how to adjust image size and resolution for web and print, create slideshows and catalogue your work. Students are required to bring their own laptops with Adobe Lightroom installed, and a selection of 6 photographs they would like to edit.

Natural Light Portraiture
Portrait photography uses lighting, backgrounds and posing to capture the personality of a person. Portrait photography is one of the most useful types of photography to learn because there are so many photography genres that involve photographing people; weddings, documentary/photojournalism, newborn photography, corporate headshots and editorial work, to name just a few. Even if you're only interested in taking "everyday" candid snapshots of your family and friends, using portrait photography techniques can help to improve them.

It was GREAT. The "teacher" was FULL of fantastic information. My hubby and I aren't newbies at photography, a LITTLE new to lighting...and he was able to go more in depth with us, which I LOVED.
