Teach a Class
Come along to our 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 run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

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!

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

Warren was great - informative and gave a good few tips on long exposure. Difficult to critique the session as it was my first one so dont know how these are supposed to operate bit the group became quite spread out so was difficult.for Warren to get round everyone. That said, we covered night shots, light trials and water reflections in a 2 hour period so enjoyed it and will book up another session in the New Year

Really enjoyed it. Warren is an encouraging and enthusiastic teacher. And the other participants were so nice too. I think the restricted size of the group made it easier to do the street photography too. Too many and we may not have been able to get as many shots.

The session was reschedule to the Sunday due to bad weather which was a great call! We were introduced to the monochrome setting on the camera and then head off to explore NQ with a few tasks to complete. The tasks were quite varied allowing us to get pretty creative. Warren was very polite and encouraging, and gave us really useful tips in regards to camera settings. I learned a lot from this course and my photos look great! In regards to safety, I felt quite safe with >1m distance maintained for most of the course.
