Saturday the 5th of November 2016
Animals and Pets Photography - Featherdale Wildlife Park, 9am
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.
Nick & Adam provided great advice and our gorgeous model Elena provided great subject material (& patience, dealing with a large group of us paparazzi!) 5/5 by Kathy Wallace 23-10-2016
This was my first portrait session and it was certainly worthwhile. Nick put a lot of effort into finding us different lighting so we could practise under a variety of conditions. Elena, the model, was wonderful. It was a great opportunity to put theory into practice! 4/5 by Ann Hodgson 23-10-2016

Fun, informative and friendly 4/5 by Tracey Flynn 18-6-2016
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. 5/5 by Margaret McLennan 26-5-2016
Great challenge. Lots of colour and people. 4/5 by Lee Schatkowski 22-5-2016
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. 5/5 by Sue Low 8-5-2016
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. 5/5 by David Tillett 8-5-2016
Excellent manner and explanation of the different topics covered. Very friendly atmosphere. 5/5 by Geoff Brown 7-5-2016
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 5/5 by stuart buechel 1-5-2016

Excellent! Nick gave excellent instruction. 5/5 by Jenny Hall 13-4-2016
This was far more challenging than prior sessions, for me. But it is sometimes good to be pushed a little!! Thanks Nick and Klara for all your help. A fun time had as well with nice people. 5/5 by Kathy Wallace 27-3-2016
