Teach a Class
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 meetups 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 one 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 Austin Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

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

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.

It was a great afternoon out with Tim and a bunch of fellow photographers. I appreciated learning where in the city to find cool perspectives to capture shadows and strong lines. His technical knowledge is extensive. Even though I’ve been shooting for years it’s appreciated to refresh the skills and step away from routine.

Lighting class- Matthew is amazing! Great location with lots of artistic shot possibilities. He’s very organized and ready to teach us even have refreshments and great models for us. He’s got great teaching method, he shows us pictures of the concept we’re trying to accomplish, then we go , shoot away, come back and he views , critique and tell us how we can improve our work! I’m a visual learner so this works great for me. He even edits the photos on his Mac and shows us some photoshop skills. Simply amazing! I totally recommend him and I can’t wait for next class from him.

Silhouette class was so much fun! Natalie is super awesome. She will accommodate what ever camera you have. I’m a newbie coming out of auto mode. She helped me understand the concept and settings needed on my camera. Also walking around finding great spots to get great silhouettes , she even modeled for us. Totally recommend and I can’t wait for the next class/meetup.
