The Edinburgh Photography Group is a regular, fortnightly social gathering for people who share a passion for photography and want to practise their skills. It gives you the chance to meet up with other photographers, trade tips and build friendships. Beginners are welcome.
Each two hour class will focus on one theme or particular aspect of photography, in a different location each fortnight. A professional photographer will also be there to help answer questions and offer advice on the day. Groups larger than 12 will have multiple instructors.
The minimum age requirement is 10 years old; children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult, who will need to make a separate booking.
A DSLR camera, or a camera with manual controls is preferable, but you are welcome to bring bring any kind of camera or smartphone. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos with your peers in the Edinburgh Photography Facebook Group and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes.
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.
Very enjoyable and Virginia was friendly and knowledgable. 4/5 by Alexander Lees 15-3-2020
The knowledge brought to these events by Virginia is second to none. I loved this session 5/5 by John 14-3-2020
This is the first event of this type I have attended and was really nervous. The host Lara really put me at ease and was great throughout the morning. It was great that there was only 3 of us, Lara was able to split her time most generously between us all. A great price, not prohibitive at all. 5/5 by Angela Robertson 7-10-2018
