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 around Isle Of Wight.

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 Isle Of Wight Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 2 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

Loved it, going to need a new lens 😁 Loved the new ideas, group size ok, maybe 10 would have been better. Would do it again, my 15yr old who's doing GCSE photography is amazed and wants a go too.

As a total beginner, I was made to feel welcome and very comfortable asking questions and receiving help. I came away with pictures i didnt think I could ever take with my camera and I am really delighted. Will look forward to next meet - no matter what it is about.

Really enjoyed the time. Very informative and helpful, explaining in great detail the settings we used so by the end of the session I was feeling quite confident in using the manual settings with ease. A really great learning experience overall.

It was great, lovely to meet up with some fellow photographers with proper cameras. Good location - tower, trees, beach. Jamie was patient and took time to look at everyone?s cameras, and he answered all our questions.
