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 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 doesnít 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed with a good bunch of fellow photographers. Virginia was excellent, and during the introduction put my mind at ease about taking street photography photos of people, Thank you.

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.
