ABOUT PORTLAND
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.

Join the Portland Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

To be honest I used this event as an opportunity to "force" myself (or hold myself accountable, in a sense) to get out and use my camera. The stated theme of "urban" photography was also one of my favorite subjects: urban environements, not necessarily including people or traditional "street photography." With that in mind I enjoyed the opportunity. The event lead was attentive and checked in with me periodically.

Really good balance of class interaction, instruction, and one on one availability with the instructor. I needed a structured activity to challenge me. It was wonderful to connect with people who are into photography as much as I am!

It was a good event. The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful and I think everyone walked away from the class with a bit more familiarity of street/urban photography.
