ABOUT EDINBURGH
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 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.

Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos with your peers in the Edinburgh Photography Facebook Group



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; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

Weather was not on out side but it meant more 1 on 1 time which was great. Got me out of auto mode for sure and more confident using manual mode with a much better understanding of the exposure triangle, picture composition and different methods of shooting. Great teacher, friendly, outgoing and informative. Dog speed shooting was fun. much more aware of what i can do with my camera equipment now.

I really enjoyed this session and caught some great shots of the Forth Rail Bridge and light trails. This was a pretty large group but Virginia managed it really well and everyone got her attention. Can't wait until the next one

Virginia, the instructor, was nice and attentive to all of us, even when we were a large group of 10 people. She provided us with technical guidance and took us to the best spots to take good shots of the Forth bridges and light trails in South Queensferry. It was a fun event, and I highly recommend this type of event for people trying out different types of photography.

I really enjoyed it although it was beyond Beginners in my opinion. That said, Virginia was excellent. Patient and very supportive and I learnt lots from her and the others. I didn't think my shots were very good until I downloaded them and edited a little. I may not have been skilled enough to follow the remit exactly, but pretty pleased with the results actually
