ABOUT DURHAM
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 around Durham.

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 Durham 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.

Jonathan is such an amazing instructor. He spent time with each of us, guiding us through the session. He made sure we were all on the same level, we understood the basics and helped shape our perception through the day. Personally, he has helped me change my perception, the way I see the scene in front of me, helped me improve my composition and fine tuned my sense. I was so proud of myself at the end of the day I pretty much floated home. I loved the little tasks he gave us for each part of the session. I came home with so many good shots I'll probably grow old trying to edit them all.

Jonathan was really helpful, passionate about photography and really approachable. This was the first time I?ve ever done anything like this and it challenged me but gave me more confidence in my ability and expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed the event, thank you.
