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 share your photos with your peers on the Photoh Facebook wall and in the Melbourne Photography Facebook Group and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes.

I love the photo sessions with Alli. I always leave having learnt something new. She obviously puts a lot of time and effort into planning the sessions and often provides us with a print out cheat sheet we can refer to. Feedback she gives is always positive but constructive and she is full of helpful suggestions to help us improve our skills outside of the group.

Helped me to think outside the box, which I am trying to do. It gave me lots of ideas for when I go on holiday what to look for. These groups are also slowly helping me understand what kind of photos I take and am comfortable with.
