Understanding Your Light Meter and Histogram - Cockatoo Island at 9am
or Buy a Voucher as a gift
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.

Please note that this event is a social meet up (not a formal class) and is best suited to photographers who want the opportunity to explore different photography topics every fortnight and know how to use their cameras on manual mode (not total beginners). If you are after a more structured educational experience, Photoh also offers a Photography for Beginners course that is conducted in a smaller group, so you have more opportunity to interact with your instructor one-on-one.

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. General attendance costs $35, but may occasionally be higher if a model, studio hire or special equipment is required.

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 on the Photoh Facebook wall and in the Sydney Photography Facebook Group and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes.

As usual a great morning with a great group of people. Good to see so many new members and also to welcome Matthew as a new additional instructor. Both Nick and Matthew were very helpful and very approachable, nothing was too much trouble. Interesting place to shoot so many different sights and colours.

Great challenge. Lots of colour and people.

I thought the way the event was held was very positive. Explaining the topic and then having us go and take photos with those points in mind. Nick did a good job of walking around making sure we knew what we were doing nad answering any questions we might have. I am interested in the critiquing process which I have not yet experienced.

Another good session. As a relatively new arrival in Sydney I enjoy the chance to visit or revisit parts of Sydney alongside the chance to enhance my photographic skills and/or vision. I really appreciate Nick's work in giving so much feedback on the images that are posted to the group's FaceBook page.

Chines Gardens Event Have been to a couple of recent events and am learning heaps ! Whilst the group is informal, Nick and Klara both have a great way of bringing you on and balancing what you know against what you've yet to learn. Really great bunch of people in the Group as well. A really enjoyable way to spend some time with like-minded photographers
