Teach a Class
Come along to our fortnightly photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers. We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Manchester. 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.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

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!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos in the Manchester Photography Facebook Group

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

I loved the photo walk with Adam. He had time to chat with all of us in the group and answered all the questions we had. The tasks were interesting and engaging, completing them made me feel that I have learned something important. I was amazed how much we have managed to do in 2 hours!

Adam is absolutely brilliant - I love the focus of having little exercises to do, the friendliness and welcoming nature of him and the other photographers, and the individual help he gives everyone. Every session really helps me understand more about my camera and how to use it and grow in confidence, so thank you!
5/5 by Bethan Blakeley
I enjoyed how relaxed it was and that we had a nice mixture of being taught but also being able to wander and find things that we each found interesting to photograph. It was really nice to then see all the different photos we all came back with.
