Saturday the 23rd of September 2017
Spring Photography - City Botanical Gardens at 10am
Students will be photographing the gardens in bloom in spring using macro techniques.
Each two hour class will focus on one theme or particular aspect of photography, in a different location each fortnight. Our professional photography instructor, Adam Robert Young, 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 and other handy tips with your peers on the Facebook page and in the Brisbane Photography Facebook Group, and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes.

Great, I love experiencing the sites of Brisbane and seeing it from the inside of a camera. Not only does it get me out of the house, I am using my camera again and relaxing in a hobby I started years ago when there was only film and it was sooo expensive. 4/5 by Nicole Hicks 24-1-2016
