We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Sydney. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Complete beginner? We recommend starting with the Photography for Beginners Class, which is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor.

Looking to learn more? Come along to the group sessions, which are more casual and informal than other workshops, and with more time to take photos and put your new skills into practice.

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!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

Join the Sydney Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session and to take part in our free, fortnightly competitions!

Frame within a Frame - Sydney Opera House - 10am - 2 Hours
Adding a frame within the frame of your shot has a variety of benefits:

- It keeps the viewer’s eye in place and focused on the subject
- It adds depth, order and structure to your photo (which can be accentuated even more with a wide aperture)
- It can hide something ugly or undesirable in your shot
- It can add contrast to an image and make a boring shot suddenly become much more interesting

So, how do we do it? Join this challenge to learn how to think outside the box, literally!
