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 in Birmingham.

  • 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 Birmingham Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    Title or Location: Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park
    I almost didn't go for this shot. It was towards the end of our hiking day, and I'd taken many shots at this point. Then, I saw this little bee working and quickly bent down to capture this image. Tannehill has so many great things to see throughout the park. We feel like we have an entirely new experience with each visit. Image taken 10/22/22 with Canon EOS R, Canon RF 70-200 f4.

    Photo taken at Osaka Aquarium, Osaka, Japan. This was a pretty cool aquarium. Several tanks were several stories tall with viewing area on each floor. This photo is of a Black Crown Night Heron. Shot with my Nikon Z8 Nikon Z24-120S 4.0Processed with Photoshop Topaz . I shoot raw so I used several adjustment layers to achieve the desired look.

    Title or Location: Christmas Boxer
    I was testing out a new backdrop that I purchased for a family mini Christmas shoot that I have coming up. I used to make my children be my models but since they are grown Zeus, my boxer, was such a good boy and was my model. This was shot on a Canon EOS 6D with the EF 24-105mm f/4L at 24mm, ISO 320, 1/160. I used two Alien B800 strobes with white umbrellas.
