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.

Join the Coffs Harbour Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.



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

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 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; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.
REVIEWS
I really enjoyed the beginners class to photography. Instructor was fantastic and made a few assumptions about our skill devil. Started at the beginning and step through some basic functions and techniques.

Michael was very patient and helpful, he is encouraging and I felt comfortable enough to ask any question. He allows lots of time for experimentation without overloading you with information. Michael explained things in a relaxed manner, he had a useful handout, made suggestions from his own experiences and used an old camera to show us how it works. I highly recommend this course for beginners it was very motivating.

Really enjoyed the day and learning what we did. Would really like to know how to use my camera and its features better, think that would have made the day a little better personally for me. But otherwise was happy with the organisation and all that we learned for the day.

I found the event informative & enjoyable. Tony Benson the instructor was very helpful, informative & knowledgeable. He helped me with elements of photography I couldn't quiet grasp & guided the group to be creative by looking at objects to photograph in a different view & perspective. I enjoyed the event that much I have booked the next workshop.
