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.
The session will hope to capture sunset colours of the Forth Rail Bridge, and other bridges as hinterland interest. The session will cover settings for sunset photography (sunset permitting) and then head into South Queensferry for some twilight/night photography.
Another excellent event facilitated by Virginia Wilde. As always i learnt loads and snagged a couple of decent shots of flocks of geese. Highly recommended 5/5 by John Adams 26-10-2020
Great, apart from the weather.
Virginia had researched the area beforehand so we didnít have to search for the birds. I was also very grateful for use of her lens for the session. I look forwards to the next session. 5/5 by Huw Lewis 24-10-2020
Was a great way to spend a morning, there wasn't a question that wasn't answered, really informative and finally got me off automatic mode. Virginia was extremely knowledgeable and passionate and thought of everything from models being arranged to hand warmers with is being outside. 5/5 by Samantha Douglas 11-10-2020

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
